2025 Symposium Flyer

UIC Law Review 2025 Symposium on Therapeutic Jurisprudence.

The UIC Law Review is now accepting submissions for its 2025 symposium issue, 58-3.

Please send your proposed abstract and a CV to the UIC Law Review Managing Editor, Derek Rhea, at, by August 16 for consideration. Questions may be directed to the Managing Editor as well.

Topic: The 58-3 symposium issue will focus on the topic of Therapeutic Jurisprudence (TJ).

TJ is an interdisciplinary field of philosophy and practice that examines the therapeutic and anti-therapeutic properties of laws and public policies, legal and dispute resolution systems, and legal institutions. TJ values psychologically healthy outcomes in legal disputes and transactions, without claiming exclusivity in terms of policy objectives. For more information on TJ, visit:

Timeline and Expectations: Authors selected for publication in 58-3 will speak at the Chicago-based, hybrid symposium on April 4, 2025. In-person attendants will be hosted at UIC School of Law, 300 S. State St., Chicago, IL 60604. Abstracts are to be submitted by August 16, 2024; however, authors are encouraged to submit their abstract prior to this deadline as UIC Law Review reserves the right to consider and select submitted abstracts on a rolling basis. Authors are expected to make a good faith effort to work with their editors to meet the following deadlines:

Aug. 16: Final Deadline for Abstract Submission
Aug. 23: Publication Agreements Signed; Introduction to Editor
Dec. 13: Author’s Full Draft Deadline to the Law Review

Feb. 21: Publication Deadline
Apr. 4: Hybrid Symposium (UIC Law, 300 S. State St., Chicago, IL)

Technical Requirements: Selected authors must submit their article by the December 13, 2024, deadline. The UIC Law Review does not have a maximum or minimum page requirement, but requests that articles be within 15-60 pages in length. Articles should be double-spaced, and submitted in 12-point, Century Schoolbook font and in Microsoft Word format. Citations should be appended as footnotes or endnotes. The UIC Law Review follows Bluebook citation style; however, the journal will work with authors to update citations from other styles.
