During the upcoming academic year, the Georgetown Center for the Study of the Legal Profession and the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics will be co-hosting a symposium on current trends and issues confronting lawyers and law firms. The organizers are particularly interested in work that provides insight into the dynamics of modern practice through the use of qualitative or quantitative empirical research methods. In the spring of 2009, the papers will be presented to a combined academic and practitioner audience at Georgetown University Law Center (travel and lodging paid for by symposium organizers). Researchers interested in participating should submit a working title of the proposed paper/study to Professor Mitt Regan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Editor-in-Chief Matt Smith (email@example.com) by August 1, 2008. A draft of accepted papers will be due by October 30th; completed drafts will be due by November 30th. Please contact the symposium organizers with any additional questions.
