Call for Papers

The University of Mississippi and the Mississippi Law Journal is pleased to announce that in Spring 2013 Supra will be devoted to current scholarship in the area of Poverty & Access to Justice. Supra publishes content exclusively for our online format. Thus, our articles are generally concise.  Supra serves as a practitioner’s aid with articles detailing current challenges and practical solutions.  Supra is seeking submissions that address practical solutions under this general theme.

Possible civil topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The Use of Forms for Self-Represented Litigants
  • Developing Statutory Law that can be Utilized by Self-Represented Litigants
  • Civil Gideon
  • Should Bar Associations Require Mandatory Pro Bono Hours

Scholars in the area of pro bono assistance and legal profession are invited to submit paper proposals, 1-2 pages in length, by September, 15, 2012.  Proposals should be sent to Kristen Kyle-Castelli, Executive Supra Editor.  Papers will be selected to ensure a wide range of topics.

As an online Journal, Supra accepts papers that are 4,000 words or greater.  Final drafts of papers are due by October 31, 2012. Supra and the Mississippi Law Journal will host a physical Symposium addressing this issue during the spring semester.

Questions can be submitted to Kristen Kyle-Castelli, Executive Supra Editor, or Emily Steadman, Editor-in-Chief.
