Event Details

On Friday, March 28 and Saturday, March 29, 2014, the Virginia Law Review will host its Centennial Symposium. In celebration of our 100th anniversary, we would like to invite you to join us for all or part of the weekend.

Four panels of distinguished scholars and federal judges from U.Va. and across the country will discuss four of the most influential and thought provoking articles published in the Virginia Law Review. We hope that the panel discussions will demonstrate the Virginia Law Review's history, continuity, and diversity of intellectual discussion. 

Please contact Taylor Steffan, Assistant Managing Editor, at tms3e@virginia.edu or (973) 919-9626, with any questions.
