Indiana Tech Law School and Indiana Tech Law Review present Private Prisons: The Corporatization of Criminal Justice and the New Marketplace for Crime on November 11, 2016.

The private prison system raises issues that touch upon criminal sentencing, immigration policy, the legitimacy of delegating carceral policy to the private sector, and fundamental liberty guarantees under the Fourteenth Amendment.  The organizers seek papers that will contribute to the important dialogue about the legal system’s responsibility for both producing and correcting these outcomes. Papers accepted for the symposium will be published in a special symposium edition of the Indiana Tech Law Review.

Email a proposal of up to 500 words as a Word or PDF document by May 1, 2016.  Include your name, institution, and contact information in the proposal and submit it via email to Lydia LaMont ( with the subject line “Symposium Call for Papers.”

Decisions will be made by June 1st and working paper drafts are due by October 15th.
