Call for Papers: California Law Review Symposium on Obergefell v. Hodges

We have been closely covering historians' commentary on Obergefell v. Hodges, a decision that stands out for its multifaceted uses of history. Readers who have been following these posts may also be interested in the following call for submissions:
The California Law Review welcomes you to submit a brief essay on the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges.

We will publish select submissions in a fall series in the California Law Review’s online companion, Circuit. To be clear, we are interested in fielding a wide range of reflections and perspectives on this historic decision. While we welcome essays celebrating the decision, we also seek essays that take a more critical view of the decision and the marriage equality movement more generally. We welcome submissions from legal scholars and practitioners. Submissions are capped at 3,000 words and due by August 28, 2015. Please send your submission via email at

Circuit promotes scholarly discussion and original thinking on current legal topics from practitioners, academia, and law students. Should you have general questions about Circuit, please contact Senior Online Editor Mona Fang. We look forward to reading your work.
