Since its inception in 1978, the Western New England Law Review has published critical pieces on contemporary legal issues.  We produce one volume yearly, comprising two issues and one symposium issue, which peers keenly into a particular area of timely legal discussion.  Our publications include essays and articles, from legal scholars and practitioners, and student Notes, written by Law Review members during their first year on the Editorial Staff.  We are proud to be a fully-digitalized publication since Volume 35, published in 2013.  In 2017, we will be excitedly unveiling our Law Review blog, which will curate original analytical insights from a variety of legal minds.  

In addition to our published pieces, we are deeply committed to contributing thoughtful scholarship through community events. On Friday, October 20, 2017, the Review will be hosting a Symposium, Perspectives on Racial Justice in the Era of #BlackLivesMatter. The event will open with breakfast and networking at 10:00. At 11:00 we will have a panel on Kibbe v. City of Springfield, with both attorneys who argued the case at the US Supreme Court. From then on there will be speakers throughout the day, as well as lunch. Some of the speakers include Attorney Carl Williams of the ACLU, and Attorney Nicole Austin-Hillery of the Brennan Center in Washington D.C. The day will end with a panel of all six speakers answering questions and interacting with the audience. There will then be a cocktail hour and a dinner at 5:30 and 6:30 respectively.
