Student editors of the Osgoode Hall Law Journal , one of Canada’s premier peer-reviewed law journals, have come up with a unique way to showcase Juris Doctor (JD) students’ research at the Law School.

For the first time ever, the student editors will be organizing (with the help of Osgoode’s Research Office) the Osgoode Hall Law Journal JD Research Symposium on Friday, March 27, 2015 in the Osgoode Faculty Common Room (Room 2027 of the Ignat Kaneff Building) at 9.30 a.m.

“The Symposium will provide a unique forum in which JD students at Osgoode can showcase their research projects in a supportive environment and receive feedback on their projects from peers and professors,” said Anthony Sangiuliano, a Law Journal student editor who has been helping to plan the event. “It aims to facilitate the JD students’ contribution to Osgoode’s ongoing commitment to the dissemination of academic research and writing.”

Sangiuliano said the Law Journal has issued a CALL FOR PAPERS from Osgoode JD students who have written or are writing a legal research paper. The due date for submissions is Monday, February 23, 2015.

“Students will have the opportunity to give a short presentation of their paper before a panel of their peers and professors,” he said. “In return, they will receive constructive feedback on their papers in a collegial environment.”

To participate, Osgoode JD students must do the following:
• E-mail by Monday, February 23, 2015.
• The subject line of the message should be in the following format: “LAST NAME, first name – 2015 OHLJ Symposium.”
• Attach the paper written as part of the student’s JD studies. A fully written paper is preferable, however, if a student is currently in the process of writing their paper, they may instead provide an abstract and/or detailed outline of their paper.
• Indicate the student’s full name.
• Indicate the student’s Law School year (e.g. 1L, 2L, 3L).
