Call for papers on consumer law

The Montana Law Review is seeking papers on consumer law for a symposium to be held next September:

The Montana Law Review invites submissions for the 2020 biennial Browning Symposium at the University of Montana’s Blewett School of Law. The symposium will take place September 24 and 25 in Missoula, Montana. The topic this biennium is consumer law in the 21st century, and Richard Cordray, the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and former Ohio attorney general, will give the keynote address.

The Montana Law Review is seeking panelists to share their expertise on cutting edge consumer issues during the symposium and to publish papers in a special symposium edition of the Montana Law Review. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, cryptocurrency, social media influencers, challenges to disclosures, student loans, credit card debt, debt collection, healthcare fraud, pharmaceutical litigation, and data privacy.

Western Montana in the fall is a beautiful place to consider these important issues, and the Montana Law Review will reimburse reasonable travel expenses for selected participants. Missoula offers unmatched outdoor recreation opportunities, including world-class fishing and hiking, and is located only hours from Glacier National Park. 

Interested participants should submit a short abstract for an unpublished paper, along with institutional affiliation and contact information, to symposium editor Kelsey Dayton at The Montana Law Review will select participants on a rolling basis beginning in April.
