CFP: Health Law Works-in-Progress Retreat – Newark, NJ

Seton Hall Law

The Seton Hall Law School Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy is soliciting scholarly submissions for its Fourth Annual Regional Health Law Works-in-Progress Retreat, which will be held on Friday, February 7, 2020, at Seton Hall Law School in Newark, New Jersey.  The purpose of the retreat is to give area health law scholars an opportunity to share their work and exchange ideas in a friendly, informal setting.  The retreat is open to anyone with an academic appointment in health law, including professors, fellows, and visitors, in any institution of higher education (not just law schools).  While it is geared to people in the Northeast area, scholars from outside the area are also welcome to participate.

During the retreat, we will engage in an in-depth discussion of 5-6 draft papers.  For each paper, we will designate two commentators, each of whom will have about 10 minutes to present comments and suggestions.  The author will then have 5 minutes to respond, after which we will open the floor to a general discussion among all retreat participants.

If you are interested in having your paper presented, we ask that you submit a preliminary draft or, if that is not possible, a detailed introduction or outline of at least 5 pages, no later than November 22, 2019. Submissions should be sent to Catherine Finizio, at, who will anonymize them before distributing them to the selection committee. We will select the papers to be presented by December 13, and we will then identify two commentators for each of the papers.  Final drafts will be due on January 24, 2020.  Drafts will be made available to all participants on a password-protected website.
