Call for Tax Papers and Panels: Law & Society Annual Meeting

Law_societyNeil H. Buchanan (George Washington) has issued his annual call for tax papers and panels for next year's annual meeting of the Law & Society Association in Honolulu, Hawai‘i (June 5-8, 2012):

As has become our custom, I will organize sessions for the Law, Society, and Taxation group (Collaborative Research Network 31).

The official call for papers is here. Please remember that you are not bound by the official theme of the conference. As it says on the website: "As with every Annual Meeting, panels need not be centered on the conference theme. Submissions on any law and society topic are welcome." (This year's theme is quite broad, in any case.) Therefore, I will give full consideration to proposals in any area of tax law, tax policy, distributive justice, interdisciplinary approaches to tax issues, and so on.

As always, I will accept proposals for individual papers as well as complete paper panels, roundtables, and author-meets-reader sessions. For individual paper submissions, I will organize papers with common themes into sessions. I will then submit those sessions to the Law & Society program committee. In order to do that, I need to receive your submissions one week before the official deadline for submissions.

Therefore, please submit proposals to me by Tuesday, November 29, 2011. You need only submit a title and a very short description (one or two sentences) of the proposed paper. (No abstracts needed.) Your paper need not yet be written, and the only requirement is that you have at least something (an outline, a first draft, etc.) that can be sent to your session chair by about 30 days before the meetings (early May).

Note also the following rule: "Participants are limited to ONE appearance in one of the following roles: Paper Presenter OR Roundtable Participant." You may also be a chair, discussant, or chair/discussant on TWO panels. If you would like to volunteer to be a chair/discussant, please let me know.
