Call for Papers

The staff of the Texas A&M Law Review invites you to participate in its Fall 2014 symposium entitled New Technology and Old Law: Rethinking National Security, to be held October 17, 2014. The Law Review’s goal for the Symposium is to facilitate scholarly discussion regarding the current national security legal framework, including whether that framework is equipped to handle technological innovations that threaten national security and to illicit proposals that would ensure the legal framework is in conformity with technology-based threats.

To accompany the Symposium, the Law Review will publish a dedicated issue covering the intersection between emerging technologies and national security law, including, but not limited to, cybersecurity and counter-intelligence, mass-surveillance and Big Data, internet freedom, asymmetric warfare, and biotechnology.

The Law Review is excited to announce the Symposium’s Keynote Speaker: William C. Banks, Board of Advisors Distinguished Professor, and Director of the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at Syracuse University College of Law.

The Law Review seeks submissions of articles or essays for presentation at the Symposium as well as publication in the Spring 2014 symposium issue. Please submit all materials to Dwayne Lewis, Symposia Editor, at symposia.editor by no later than July 28, 2014. To be considered for publication, please submit: (1) an abstract of no more than 750 words, (2) a curriculum vitae (CV), and (3) an indication of your willingness/availability to travel to Fort Worth, Texas to participate in the Symposium.

The Law Review staff will notify authors of their selection for publication on or before August 4, 2014. Authors selected for publication will be required to submit final drafts for editing and staff review no later than January 1, 2015.

Questions should be directed to Dwayne Lewis, Symposia Editor, at symposia.editor or you may reach our Faculty Advisor, Mary M. Penrose at megpenrose.
