The Boundaries of Intellectual Property

On February 20-21, 2015, the Review and the Institute of Bill of Rights Law hosted a Symposium dedicated to “Plea Bargaining Regulation: The Next Criminal Procedure Frontier” at the William & Mary School of Law. The Symposium gathered leading criminal procedure scholars to discuss constitutional restrictions on plea bargaining, the importance of internal policies within prosecutor’s offices, the unique role of defense lawyers in the criminal justice process, and a comparative international perspective. Papers submitted as part of the Symposium will be published in Volume 57 of the Law Review. For more information, please see the Symposium program.

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 56 during the 2014-2015 academic year.

Congratulations to the Volume 57 Editorial Board!
