The Boundaries of Intellectual Property

On February 21-22, 2014, the Review and the Institute of Bill of Rights Law hosted a Symposium dedicated to "The Contemporary First Amendment: Freedom of Speech, Press, and Assembly" at the William & Mary School of Law. The Symposium gathered leading First Amendment scholars to discuss topics including the sources and scope of free speech protection, Internet exceptionalism, leaks of classified information, privacy, the intersection of freedom of speech and economic interests, comparative and cross-cultural expressive concerns, the regulation of public assembly, and government subsidization of speech. Papers submitted at the Symposium will be published in Volume 56, Issue 4 of the Law Review.

Since its beginning in 1957, the William & Mary Law Review has become one of the top general interest law journals in the country.  The Law Review, published entirely by William & Mary Law students, includes six issues per academic year and features the work of noted scholars and William & Mary students.  By publishing an annual volume of legal writing, the Law Review provides a forum for academic treatment of a variety of legal issues, offers a unique educational opportunity for its student members, aids practitioners in understanding recent developments in the law, and enhances the life of the Law School.

The Law Review will publish Volume 55 during the 2013-2014 academic year. The Volume will include Articles and Notes analyzing the Equal Protection Clause, the First Amendment, bankruptcy law, immigration, contracts, habeas corpus, family law, intellectual property, and many other legal topics.

Congratulations to the new 2L members of Volume 55!
