Written by   // December 17, 2012   // Comments Off

The Association of American Law Schools announces a new Academic Symposium track that will begin at the 2014 Annual Meeting that will be held in New York City on January 3-6, 2014. ”This new track will offer space at the Annual Meeting for open-source programs expressly structured as academic symposia.  Symposium program proposals may be proposed by any faculty member at an AALS Member School, and need not be tied to any AALS Section.”

Deadline: Proposals are due March 1, 2013.  Proposals may be for either full-day or half-day programs.  Proposals will need to include (a) an abstract of up to 750 words describing the overall symposium program and its anticipated contribution to legal scholarship, (b) abstracts of up to 250 words summarizing each symposium paper, and (c) a list of symposium participants.

Questions should be directed to Jane La Barbera at the AALS (jlabarbera[@] im

Within the Symposium, you may have up to three slots reserved for speakers selected from a call for papers, who will not need to be identified by March 1, 2013.  Symposium organizers will be required to secure publication for the Symposium in a scholarly journal or as an edited book volume, and describe the publication arrangements in their proposals.  The primary criterion used to evaluate proposals will be scholarly quality.  All proposals will be expected to reflect the diversity of the legal academy in their proposed speakers.  Organizers are encouraged to include junior faculty as participants in their proposed symposium.
