The Association for Mid-Career Tax Law Professors (“AMT”) has issued a Call for Proposals:
The unvaccinated but optimistic 2021 AMT organizing committee—Jennifer Bird-Pollan, Emily Cauble, Brian Galle, Ben Leff, and Leigh Osofsky—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 sixth (*: not counting last year’s summer Zoom series) annual meeting will be held virtually over two to three dates this summer: June 9, June 30, and July 21. We expect to convene for about 4 hours each day, not including the cocktail hours that Shu-Yi will inevitably organize. Presenters are asked to commit to attending at least 2/3 of the session hours; non-presenting guests (in addition to pets, inquisitive children, and in-home contractors) are welcome.
Eligible participants are those who have been voted tenure by a graduate-degree-granting institution within the past ten years (as of June 9, 2021). Beat the rush and submit your proposal today.
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. If you would not be available for one of the designated dates, please note which one.
Proposals may be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject header “AMT Proposal.” Proposals should be received no later than 5 pm EST on Thursday, April 15, 2020. (What? No, we chose that date at random. Just a coincidence, we tell you.)
