Call for papers!

Recognizing that appellate lawyers and judges like to write, SCAN has received the following invitation to share:

California Western Law Review is excited to invite submissions for its special spring issue, On the Border: A Legal Survey of the Southwest. This edition intends to seize upon California Western’s close proximity to the southern border to highlight the myriad legal issues impacting our region.

Accordingly, we encourage submissions that address environmental and Native American law; legal developments in biotechnology and intellectual property; military and trade issues; and any other topic that might help illuminate the legal dynamism of San Diego and the Southwest.

Submissions from all members of the intellectual community are welcome; our Spring 2017 issue hopes to feature members of the bench, the bar, and the academy.

If you have an article you would like to submit, please email California Western Law Review with a copy of your manuscript and your CV at, with the subject line “Spring 2017 Special Issue.”
