Each year the Journal hosts two symposia and one lecture. One symposium is held each semester, and the Law Journal Lecture generally occurs in October or early November. Each symposium typically features between ten and fifteen presenters, most of whom will produce an article related to the symposium topic for publication in the Journal. Similarly, the keynote speaker invited to give the annual Law Journal Lecture will write an article for publication.
