Symposium

The 2019 Mercer Law Review Symposium, to be held September 27, will focus on "Election Law." The symposium is sponsored by the Law Review, the Mercer University School of Law, and the Southeastern Association of Law Schools. It will take place from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the Law School's first-floor courtroom.

The 2018 midterm involved numerous issues on election law and voting rights, including questions of voter registration, voter suppression, campaign finance, and more. The 2020 presidential election season, which is already underway, will provide further questions on these and other related topics. This symposium explores issues involving our recent elections. Panelists present scholarship involving various election law issues, leading to a robust discussion of the issues.

Article Submission

Georgia Survey, Eleventh Circuit Survey, and Lead Articles

Articles published in the Mercer Law Review are solicited by the Editorial Board each year for the Georgia and Eleventh Circuit Surveys, our authors are chosen for their knowledge and expertise in targeted areas of the law. The Lead Articles edition stems from the Mercer Law Review Annual Symposium, a two-day event bringing students, practitioners, and scholars together to analyze a relevant area of the law.

The Articles book features authors from around the country, writing on various topics of current interest for the legal practitioner.

The Law Review welcomes submissions from all faculty, educators, practitioners, and members of the judiciary to be considered for publication in the Articles edition. Submissions should be double-spaced, citations should conform to The Bluebook (20th ed.), and should include an abstract and a current resume or CV.

The Mercer Law Review accepts submissions through Expresso and Scholastica.
