The Fall 2013 Law Review Symposium will focus on the impact of information technology on the practice of corporate counsel. Significant increases in computing power and related technologies are impacting the practice of law in many areas. The rapid proliferation of these technologies and practices, driven by efficiency and price, holds the potential to dramatically change the way corporations and others seek, obtain, and manage legal services. The Symposium will bring together the scholarship on the theoretical underpinnings of this movement and entrepreneurs that are carrying it into the real world with corporate counsel and the law firms that service them to contribute to an understanding of how these practices will shape the future of legal practice.
TOPICS: The Campbell Law Review invites abstract submissions of 150 to 200 words from legal scholars, scholars in other disciplines interested in contributing to the Symposium, and legal practitioners. Papers may focus on emerging trends in this field, including but not limited to: the application of statistical analysis to legal research or case valuation; emerging technology in the legal profession; employment trends as a result of these practices; and other practical or ethical issues stemming from the proliferation of these practices.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Abstracts and proposals for panel presentations on issues related to this topic, as well as the author or presenter's resume, should be submitted, no later than September 1, 2013, to: Emily K. Mather, Editor-in-Chief, Campbell Law Review, firstname.lastname@example.org
