Law Review Symposium

The University of Arkansas School of Law, in conjunction with the Arkansas Law Review, hosts an annual Arkansas Law Review Symposium. The one-day event is designed to explore an area of the law from many perspectives. Guest scholars from institutions around the nation are invited to participate in panel discussions and contribute to the symposium issue of the Arkansas Law Review.

The symposium will engage nationally and internationally recognized scholars, lawyers, and construction industry professionals in such topics as: climate change and sustainable development in the built environment; emerging technologies, collaborative structures, innovative risk management devices, and alternative dispute resolution processes for addressing legal issues; construction lien law; a comparative analysis of selected principles governing the construction industry’s complex, interdependent relationships in the United States and in other English speaking countries; and the influence of economic analysis, relational contract, neoformalism, and other competing contract theories on the development of the law and the construction industry.
