TLCP welcomes suggestions for symposia topics and is interested in co-sponsoring and publishing the symposia of other organizations. Suggestions or offers for co-sponsorship should be submitted in writing via regular mail.

Proposals should include, at a minimum, a brief description of the organization(s) involved, relevant contact information, an overview of intended symposia coverage, a list of proposed specific subject-matter to be addressed, and a list of potential participants/authors. Organizations that have completed proposed budgets, confirmed participants or funding sources, and/or finalized other arrangements are encouraged to include such details in their proposal.

Potential co-sponsors should note that the College of Law generally will provide no more than publication costs -- and, when appropriate and on a negotiated basis, physical space at the College of Law, basic event promotion, and/or registration arrangements -- toward the costs of any conference/symposia. Organizations suggesting physical conferences should be aware that any necessary outside fundraising, extended promotion and/or materials development associated with proposed symposia will be the responsibility of the co-sponsoring organization and not TLCP or the College of Law.
