Now Accepting Proposals for the 2019 Symposium
The 2019 Symposium will take place on February 8, 2019 at the UCLA School of Law. To propose a topic, fill out the Online Form. The deadline for submissions is April 6, 2018.
The UCLA Law Review’s annual Symposium draws leading practitioners and scholars from across the nation to a forum where they exchange ideas on a topical issue of the day. Through the Symposium, we explore problems relevant to social groups that are represented in the current legal dialogue and to those that are not.
Held on February 2, 2018
Featuring keynote address by Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, California Supreme Court
Each year, we give the panelists of our Symposium an opportunity to submit articles on the topic of the Symposium for publication in the UCLA Law Review. These articles are featured in the Symposium issue—usually the last, sixth issue of each volume.
