In the modern era, judges and litigators are increasingly faced with new legal challenges, only a few dozen of which the Supreme Court can address each year. As such, the role of the circuit courts of appeal as constitutional adjudicators has become increasingly important. The circuit courts are capable of resolving far more cases than the Supreme Court could possibly address. However, their disagreements have led to an increased patchwork of rules and standards across the nation, often with the prospect of resolution by the highest court in the distant future, if ever.

Our journal was founded to explore the Circuit Courts, their importance, and most notably, their disagreements. To commemorate our tenth anniversary, the Circuit Review will hold a symposium dedicated to exploring the modern role of the Circuit Courts of Appeal and the developing challenges they face.


This symposium will address these questions through the following panels :
