We've received a call for papers on the subprime mortgage meltdown:
The Albany Government Law Review is planning an issue dedicated to the pressing topic of the Subprime Mortgage Crisis. The issue will offer a varied look into the subprime mortgage crisis by examining the origins of the crisis, federal, state, and municipal government response to the growing crisis, and a multi-viewed perspective on who bears the responsibility of solving the crisis as well as other insights into the issue. The issue is expected to be published in the winter of 2008 and manuscripts must be received by August 1, 2008 in order to be considered for publication. In addition, the AGLR offers a $500 honorarium to contributing authors. Submissions may be sent to Daniel Leinung, Managing Editor for Submissions at [email protected].
AGLR is a student-edited law review publishing semi-annually using an all-symposia format. It released its inaugural issue on campaign finance reform on January 29, 2008 with an introduction from (now-former) Governor Spitzer, and featuring the scholarship of Melvin Urofsky, Richard Briffault, and Daniel Ortiz. its second issue will be published in Spring 2008 and will feature articles contributed by speakers from the conference held at Albany Law School in October 2007 entitled Firearms, the Militia and Safe Cities: Merging History, Constitutional Law and Public Policy. These authors include Mark Tushnet, Robert Spitzer, Saul Cornell and Carl Bogus. The website is still under development but the articles from the inaugural issue are available at http://www.albanygovernmentlawreview.org/.
