In recognition of the 60th anniversary of Alaska statehood in January 2019, the Alaska Law Review is dedicating its December 2018 issue to the Alaska Constitution and hosting, with the Justice Center, a symposium on that topic.
This is the third in a series of jointly sponsored symposiums designed to bring together students, lawyers, academics and judges on current and pressing legal issues facing Alaska. Past topics have included the changing implications of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act and environmental and economic changes facing Alaska.
The December 2018 issue of the Law Review will be a "Symposium Publication" issue that includes articles related to the symposium topic.
Suggested topics for papers relevant to Alaska's Constitution include:
- The history and evolution of the Alaska Constitution
- Important Alaska Supreme Court constitutional law cases
- Significant provisions of the Alaska Constitution
- Emerging constitutional issues
- Recommendations for amendment
- Comparison to other state constitutions
