Call For Tax Papers And Panels: Law & Society Hybrid Annual Meeting

Law & Society

Neil Buchanan (Florida) has issued his annual call for tax papers and panels for next year's hybrid  annual meeting of the Law & Society Association in Lisbon and online (July 13-16, 2022):

The Law & Society Association (LSA) will host its next annual meeting from July 13 - 16, 2022, in Lisbon, Portugal.  For the eighteenth year in a row, I will organize sessions for the "Law, Society, and Taxation" group (Collaborative Research Network 31).  For the sixth year in a row, I am pleased that Professors Jennifer Bird-Pollan and Mirit Eyal-Cohen have committed to working tirelessly to make our conference-within-a-conference a success. ...

As currently planned, the conference will be held in a hybrid format, with some sessions entirely in person and others entirely virtual.

Although there is an official call for papers, please remember that you are not bound by the official theme of the conference ("Rage, Reckoning, & Remedy").  We will give full consideration to proposals in any area of tax law, tax policy, distributive justice, interdisciplinary scholarship, and so on.

The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. ET (USA) on Wednesday, November 10, 2021.

Law & Society has significantly improved the online submission system over the years, so it is no longer necessary to provide our own set of step-by-step instructions.  Please log onto the system using the link in the Call for Papers below and proceed as instructed.

A few key points:

  • Note that (unless you want to organize your own full session to be included with our group's panels, which we certainly welcome), you will want to click the "Submit an Abstract" option.
  • For "Keyword," please choose "Taxation, Social Security, Fiscal Policies."  If you want to choose a secondary keyword, feel free to do so.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: It is essential that you specify "CRN31: Law, Society, and Taxation."

Shortly after the November 10 deadline for proposals has passed, my co-chairs and I will organize the papers into full sessions.

Your paper need not yet be written, and the only requirement (other than submitting the proposal through the submission system) is that you have at least something (an outline, a first draft, etc.) that you can send to your session chair 30 days before the meeting (which means June 2022).

Note also the following limitations for each participant:

  • One participation as a Paper Presenter, Roundtable Participant, or Author.</li
  • Unlimited appearances as a Chair and/or Discussant on a panel, or an AMR reader.

Finally, please send me an email if you are interested in serving as a chair/discussant.

We look forward to seeing you at another great Law & Society conference.  If you know of any colleagues who might be interested in participating (especially those in fields other than tax law who would like to benefit from our interdisciplinary approach), feel free to forward this email to them.

Neil (speaking also for Jennifer and Mirit)
