CALL FOR PAPERS!  For the inaugural issue of Law Street Media‘s Journal of Emerging Issues in Litigation, published in collaboration with Fastcase and HB.

Journal of Emerging Issues in Litigation

This is going to be fun. An emerging litigation journal featuring thoughtful pieces for the legal and business communities. I get to put together what I did as Editor and Publisher of Mealey’s Litigation Reports and with the many speakers I’ve worked with as head of HB Litigation Conferences. I encourage you to send proposals, and thank those of you who have already started writing. Take a look below at the specifications and other details. And if you have any questions please contact me directly. I look forward to hearing from you and getting this exciting project off the ground.
