Symposium 2024

Current Call for Symposium & Timeline:

Symposium 2024-2025
We are now accepting symposium proposals for the 2024-2025 academic year. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis, and we will start to narrow down proposals beginning on March 4, 2024. If your proposal is selected, there will be an accompanying issue of the Columbia Law Review dedicated to the publication of the works generated by the symposium. Please send any questions or proposals to Shaunak Puri, the current Symposium & Book Review Editor, at Thank you for your interest!

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.
