Current Call for Symposium & Timeline:

Symposium 2022-2023
We are no longer accepting symposium proposals for the 2022-2023 academic year. We will begin soliciting proposals for the 2023-2024 academic year in January 2023. If your proposal is selected, there will be an accompanying issue of the Columbia Law Review dedicated to publication of the works generated by the symposium. Please send any questions or proposals to Thank you for your interest!

If looking forward to submitting a proposal next year, please note the proposal requirements below:

Proposals should include a detailed 2⁠–⁠3 page explanation of:

  • the proposed topic;
  • the reasons for convening a symposium now;
  • the proposed structure of panels at a live event;
  • a list of participants, including both individuals who have already confirmed they can participate or those that an organizer anticipates asking to participate; and
  • any available sources of funding for the live event.*

*Please note that additional funding is not required for the submission of a proposal, but it is encouraged as it helps defray the costs for the live event for the Review.
