The Association for Mid-Career Tax Law Professors (“AMT”) has issued a Call for Proposals:
The AMT organizing committee — Jennifer Bird-Pollan (Kentucky), Miranda Fleischer (San Diego), Will Foster (Arkansas), Brian Galle (Georgetown), and Susie Morse (Texas) — welcomes proposals for our annual conference.
AMT is a recurring conference intended to bring together relatively recently-tenured professors of tax law for frank and free-wheeling scholarly discussion. Our third annual meeting will be held on Monday and Tuesday, May 22 and 23, 2017, on the campus of the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We’ll begin early on Monday and adjourn by noon on Tuesday.
2015 Conference at Ohio State (Day 1, Day 2)
2016 Conference at UC-Davis (Day 1, Day 2)
Thanks to the support of the University of Arkansas, AMT is able to provide attendees with conference meals and refreshments. Attendees will be expected to cover remaining expenses incurred while away from home in the pursuit of their trade or business including but not limited to travel and lodging expenses.
Send in your proposal now! “Sound business judgment necessitate[s] [your] accepting th[is] offer of corporate hospitality.” U.S. v. Gotcher, 401 F.2d 118, 123 (1968). Eligible participants are those who have been voted tenure by a graduate-degree-granting institution within the past ten years (as of May 22, 2017).
Proposals should provide a brief description (not to exceed one double-spaced page) of a working paper or “incubator” idea that the participant would present at the conference. Participants are expected to read all of the presented papers, and each will serve as lead discussant for one paper. In your proposal, please note additional areas of topical interest for which you would be willing to serve as discussant.
Proposals may be submitted to: ecc85@law~dot~georgetown~dot~edu under the subject header “AMT Proposal.” Proposals should be received no later than 5 pm CDT on Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
