The West Virginia Law Review invites you to submit a proposal for participation in its annual Legal Symposium issue (February 27-28). This year, the United States’ fourth oldest law review will be highlighting the tensions between state and local governments. The Symposium editors are now accepting a select number of proposals for panels and sessions on topics related to home rule, Dillon’s Rule, and preemption such as: energy facility siting; local ordinances on discrimination, minimum wage, and gun regulations; consumer laws; the West Virginia home rule pilot program; and other related issues. The symposium intends to develop legal scholarship in state and local government law and stimulate discussion between students, academics, and practitioners. 

Abstracts of 250-500 words must be submitted through the link by September 3rd, 2019. Applicants should expect that the Symposium Editors may request further information or the opportunity to discuss the proposal in further detail. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis with final decisions expected no later than the end of September.
