ConLawNOW is an online legal journal supported by the Center for Constitutional Law, established by Congress at the University of Akron School of Law. It offers a venue for legal analysis of current issues of constitutional law happening now. The short essay format provides debate and analysis of legal issues of constitutional import in the headlines including pending Supreme Court cases, and events as they happen. ConLawNOW offers a quick turn-around time for publication designed to get authors’ insights into the public discourse where they can influence the debate.
For submissions, we welcome essays from academics, practitioners, and commentators in all types of scholarship including traditional legal analysis, history, debate, commentary, book reviews, or responses. Typical length of the articles is 10 published pages. Submissions are accepted via email at email@example.com, or by ExpressO or Scholastica.
The journal encourages dialogue and debate about constitutional law from all perspectives. The views and opinions expressed by individual authors do not necessarily reflect the views of The University of Akron or The University of Akron School of Law.
CALL FOR PAPERS: The journal is accepting submissions of papers related to the topic of Pandemics and the Constitution. We expect to continue reviewing and publishing papers for this written symposium on a rolling basis through August 2020. Details can be found here.
