Boston University Law Review Online Symposia

Since 2013, Boston University Law Review Online has selected a trending topic or recently published legal book or article on which to hold an online symposium. Scholars in the field contribute commentaries. For book and article symposia, the author is given an opportunity to respond to those comments.
