For the ninth consecutive year, 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 in the official call for papers: "Papers and panels need not be centered on the conference theme." 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 full 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 27, 2012.
Please, send me a title and a very short description (one or two sentences) of your proposed paper. No abstracts needed, nor desired. 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 that each participant is limited to ONE participation as a Paper Presenter OR a Roundtable Participant. (You will also be able to act as a chair and/or discussant in two sessions, which I will determine later.)
Please do NOT yet sign up for the conference through the Law & Society website. It works much better when we submit the sessions all at the same time. Therefore, I will send you instructions for signing up for your particular session in early December.
