Idaho Law Review: Symposium
University of Idaho College of Law
2022 Idaho Law Review Symposium
April 21 – 22, 2022 | Boise, Idaho
“Boomtown! Growth and a Clash of Identity in the American West.”
Over the last five or so years there has been major population growth in Idaho. Before 2016, the annual average growth rate for the State was between 10,000 and 20,000 citizens. Beginning in 2016, the State increased its population by over 31,000 each year. This increase has created a housing crisis. The areas most affected by the growth have been the Treasure Valley (including Boise), the Coeur d’Alene area, and Eastern Idaho (the Pocatello Metropolitan Area).
During the April 2022 Symposium, we will have panels discussing Boise’s growth; land use Issues in Idaho; homelessness and issues with affordable housing; among others. This Symposium aims to bring together real estate and land use experts from across the nation to discuss lessons learned from other states, suggested improvements, and ripple effects on industry and state taxes. Our panelists and keynote guest is being finalized and will be updated shortly.
If these issues are something that you are passionate about or have written about, please submit your piece for review to be featured in the Idaho Law Review Symposium Edition. Articles and essays could analyze new issues, tell success stories and draw lessons from other states, or explore problems and propose legal and policy recommendations. The Idaho Law Review welcomes essays (typically 2,000–6,000 words) or articles (typically 7,000–10,000 words).
If you have any questions about the call for papers or the Symposium Event, please contact the Idaho Law Review Symposium Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CLE information forthcoming.
