Michigan Law School has issued a call for papers for its Third Annual Young Scholars' Conference:
The University of Michigan Law School invites junior scholars to attend the 4th Annual Junior Scholars’ Conference which will be held on April 13th–14th, 2018, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The conference provides junior scholars with a platform to present and discuss their work with peers from different nationalities, and to receive feedback in a friendly environment from prominent Michigan Law faculty. It aims to promote fruitful collaboration between its participants, and to encourage their integration in a community of legal scholars. The Junior Scholars’ Conference is intended for all graduate students: current doctoral candidates, both in law and law-related disciplines, and recent graduates of doctoral programs. Applications by postdoctoral researchers, lecturers, fellows, and assistant professors of law will be considered as well, provided they can be regarded as junior scholars (an academic appointment of no more than three years).
To apply, please send an abstract of no more than 500 words, reflecting unpublished scholarly work to: firstname.lastname@example.org by January 8th, 2018. Please do not include institutional affiliation on your abstract. Please submit your CV as a separate file. All files should be sent in Word format (.doc).
Selection will be based on the quality and originality of the abstract, as well as its capacity to engage with other proposals towards a collaborative dialogue.
Selected presenters will be notified no later than the end of January 2018. Final papers are due on March 5th, 2018, and will be circulated among the participants in advance.
The University of Michigan Law School may allocate limited funds to help cover reasonable travel costs and accommodation for selected participants. If you wish to be considered for financial assistance, please submit a request in writing along with your abstract submission, specifying your city of departure and an estimate of your travel costs. We regret in advance that we are unable to provide full financial assistance.
