All interested comparative law scholars are invited to submit a paper to the next annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop, which will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16, 2016, at the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign.
Submission Deadline: February 1, 2016.
Organized by Maximo Langer (University of California at Los Angeles), Jacqueline Ross (University of Illinois College of Law), and Kim Lane Scheppele (Princeton University). Co-sponsored by the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of Illinois College of Law, Princeton University, and the American Society of Comparative Law.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Interested authors should submit papers to Jacqueline Ross at the University of Illinois College of Law firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2016. Authors will be informed of decisions by March 1. Participants whose papers have been accepted should plan to arrive in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois by Thursday night on April 14 and to leave either late on Saturday (as there is a 6 p.m. flight) or on Sunday, April 17.
WORKSHOP DETAILS: The annual workshop continues to be an important forum in which comparative law work in progress can be explored among colleagues in a serious and thorough manner that will be truly helpful to the respective authors. “Work in progress” means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication.) It includes law review articles, book chapters or outlines, substantial book reviews, and other appropriate genres.
