Call for Papers for the Yale Journal of International Law’s Sixth Annual Young Scholars’ Conference

by Chris Borgen

YJIL has just posted the call for papers for the next Young Scholars’ Conference. (Yale Law Students had guest blogged during the previous conference here.)

I was on a faculty panel at last year’s conference and was very impressed by the student presentations. It is a great opportunity for students who are interested in pursuing careers in international law. Here’s the call for papers:

Deadline: December 10, 2007

The Yale Journal of International Law (YJIL) is accepting submissions for its Young Scholars’ Conference, which will take place on March 1,2008. The Conference aims to encourage scholarship in international law among current students by giving them an opportunity to present a paper and receive feedback from distinguished professors in the field. The Conference will include panel presentations of student scholarship, a roundtable discussion on careers in legal academia, a keynote address, and a closing dinner. Two of the papers presented at the Conference will be selected for publication as student notes in YJIL. Support for the Conference has been provided by the Oscar M. Ruebhausen ’37 Fund.

YJIL will accept papers of no more than 15,000 words (including footnotes) on topics in international law from current students. Papers that have previously been published will not be considered. Presenters must be able to travel to New Haven, CT, for a full day of events on March 1, 2008. YJIL will provide presenting students with accommodations and cover up to $200 of their conference-related travel expenses.

Submissions, accompanied by author’s c.v., should be sent to yjil [dot] conference [at] yale [dot] edu.
