Call for Papers: Akron Law Review

The Akron Law Review is soliciting articles for a symposium issue that will explore the contours of the Erie doctrine after the Supreme Court’s decision in Shady Grove Orthopedic Associates, P.A. v. Allstate Insurance Co., 130 S. Ct. 1431 (2010).  
The Akron Law Review will review articles on a rolling basis until October 15, 2010.
The Court’s fractured opinion in Shady Grove raises many questions regarding the durability of the framework established in Hanna v. Plumer for resolving potential conflicts between Federal Rules and state law, or if the framework remains intact, how courts should apply that framework.  In a symposium tentatively titled, Erie Under Advisement:  The Doctrine After Shady Grove, theAkron Law Review seeks articles that discuss Shady Grove, the future implications of Shady Grove, and the Court’s treatment of the substantive rights prohibition of the Rules Enabling Act.  More broadly, the symposium also aims to collect articles about other aspects of the future of the Erie doctrine.
This symposium will follow a number of strong symposium issues published recently in the Akron Law Review, including symposia on the following topics: (1) the Future of Summary Judgment, including papers related to the presentations at the 2010 Annual Meeting program of the AALS Section on Litigation, forthcoming late summer 2010; (2) Lawyers Beyond Borders and Law in the Electronic Age, 2010; (3) Neuroscience, Law, and Government, 2009; (4) Rape, Affirmative Consent to Sex, and Sexual Autonomy, 2008; and (5) the Fourth Remedies Discussion Forum, 2006.
The Akron Law Review is currently ranked thirty-ninth among student-edited, general law reviews, according to the Washington & Lee impact rankings.  We have also ranked in the top 50 in that ranking for the past five years.  We pride ourselves on careful editing, timely publication, and quick response to author inquiries.  We also seek to provide the utmost deference to our authors' judgment.
The Akron Law Review will review articles on a rolling basis until October 15, 2010.
Articles should conform to The Bluebook citation format.  We welcome articles of any length.
Thank you for considering submitting an article for inclusion in this symposium issue.
Please submit articles to:
John Thuermer
Symposium Editor
Substantive questions may be referred to:
