New members, new topics, and new technology abound for the Northern Kentucky Law Review!
This past Saturday, June 17th, twenty-one new members (now Associate Editors) attended orientation where they were provided with endless baked goods and invaluable training. Representatives from Lexis, Westlaw, and the Chase College of Law Library presented tools to assist new members in selecting publishable topics, writing their student notes, and editing others’ pieces.
Alex Kubala, a third-year law student and Associate Editor, said, “The orientation was very informative, and the editors have worked very hard to increase the law review’s online presence, ensuring Chase’s continuing prestige in Kentucky’s legal community.”
Desiree Isaac, Editor-in-Chief, and Patrick Quinn, Executive Editor, also discussed their personal experiences with Law Review and how partaking in this prestigious organization has helped them both professionally and academically.
Executive Editor Patrick Quinn recounted of his experience as an Associate Editor, “The research and writing skills developed through work on my Law Review note over the summer gave me the opportunity to have my most successful semester in the Fall.”
This year, the Northern Kentucky Law Review will tackle three topics and publish a journal for each: cyber-security, profiling, and general law. Members will have an opportunity to be published along with other experts in each topic area.
In addition to journals, there will be a cyber-security symposium on Friday, October 13, 2017 and a profiling symposium on Friday, March 9, 2018. The Internet of Things will be one of many topics discussed at the cyber symposium and the profiling symposium will likely be broken into three subcategories: racial profiling in criminal law, religious profiling in immigration law, and profiling in the practice of law. The symposia will include speakers from various areas, as well as our own Law Review members.
As you likely have gathered, the Northern Kentucky Law Review is also stepping in to the 21st Century, establishing an online presence.
