Calling all writers!

Irwin Law is now accepting submissions for our upcoming issue of The Canadian Class Action Review! Edited by Harvey T. Strosberg Q.C., The Canadian Class Action Review is the only journal in Canada focused on publishing leading edge, multidisciplinary scholarship about class actions. As with every issue, we are looking for fresh, new voices and great writing!

If you are interested in contributing, please note that your article, case comment, or book review must be submitted electronically as a Word document. The CCAR follows the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 8th edition. The paper should focus on issues affecting Canadian class actions (as opposed to focusing on the United States, for example). We also ask that you submit a short abstract of no more than 250 words with your paper. If you are submitting a French paper, please include an English abstract. Tables of contents for previous issues are set out here so you can ensure that your topic is not duplicative.

We look forward to receiving your submissions electronically at lsteeve@irwinlaw.com. As a condition of submission and publication, the author agrees to Irwin Law Inc.'s publishing the paper in the CCAR in print and/or electronic form.
