Call for Papers from Greg Gordon: Central States Law Schools Association

by Peggy McGuinness

Our friend and OJ guest contributor Professor Greg Gordon passes along the following call for papers — for international law scholars and other subject areas — for the Central Law Schools Association 2010 meeting. Full announcement after the jump:

The Central States Law Schools Association 2010 conference will be held September 24 and 25, 2010, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, hosted by the University of North Dakota School of Law. We invite law faculty to submit proposals to present papers or works in progress.

Although CSLSA is a regional association (whose members include, among others, the law schools at the University of Chicago and the University of Michigan), faculty from other law schools also have participated in the annual conference from as far away as Boston, Florida and Oregon. We encourage faculty from across the country to attend.

The purpose of CSLSA is to foster scholarly exchanges among law faculty across legal disciplines. The annual CSLSA conference is a forum for legal scholars, especially more junior scholars, to present working papers or finished articles on any law-related topic in a relaxed and supportive setting where junior and senior scholars from various disciplines are available to comment. More mature scholars have an opportunity to test new ideas in a less formal setting than is generally available for their work. Based on submissions to date, international law scholarship will play a prominent role at the conference.

In keeping with tradition, CSLSA is able to pay for one night’s lodging and meals for presenters from member schools. There is no registration fee for participants from member schools. Additional information regarding registration will be forthcoming in future announcements. Schools interested in joining CSLSA should contact the Association’s Treasurer, Carolyn Dessin at cld3 [at] uakron [dot] edu. If you have any other questions about this conference, please contact the CSLSA President, Gregory Gordon at gordon [at] law [dot] und [dot] edu.

To allow scheduling of the conference, please send abstract or précis of no more than 500 words to Vice President Jelani Jefferson Exum at jjeffers [at] ku [dot] edu by August 31, 2010. Any late submissions will be considered on a space available basis only. Every effort will be made to accommodate all interested participants.
