The deadline for submission: September 15, 2011
The International Journal of the Legal Profession invites manuscripts for a planned symposium issue on Government Legal Practice and Government Lawyers. We are particularly interested in papers dealing with lawyers occupying career positions in government service dealing with matters other than criminal prosecution or criminal defense. We welcome studies dealing with a wide range of issues including (but not limited to) the nature of the lawyers’ work, their career patterns, the ethical issues they confront, and/or how they balance professional norms in a political environment. Questions about the suitability of manuscripts can be directed either to the general editor, Professor Avrom Sherr (Avrom.Sherr@sas.ac.uk) at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, or the symposium editor, Professor Herbert Kritzer (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the University of Minnesota Law School. Submissions should be sent electronically, either as Word documents or as PDF documents (with all identifying information removed) to Professor Sherr. All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s normal peer review process. The deadline for submission to insure consideration for the symposium is September 15, 2011; it is anticipated that the symposium will be published in the second issue of 2012.
