Volume 95 Symposium Announcement

October 27, 2019

On Friday, November 8, 2019 Volume 95 of the Notre Dame Law Review will host its annual Symposium in the Patrick F. McCartan Courtroom. This year’s Symposium is titled Pioneering Research in Empirical Legal Studies: A Symposium in Honor of Professor Margaret Brinig.

Notre Dame Law School’s own Professor Margaret Brinig is retiring this year, and Notre Dame Law Review has identified the Symposium as the perfect opportunity to honor her. This year’s Symposium will revolve around Professor Brinig’s lasting scholarly contributions. Specifically, the Symposium will focus on empirical legal studies, recognizing, in particular, Professor Brinig’s fundamental and pioneering role in the field.

The Symposium will feature several panels of prominent scholars who will speak on the intersection of various areas of the law with empirical studies, as well as on methodological issues in the empirical study of the law.

This year’s keynote speaker is the Honorable Stephanos Bibas of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Judge Bibas’ keynote address will be published in the Symposium Issue of Volume 95 alongside the articles written by the panelists. The Symposium Issue will be released in the spring of 2020.
