21 Sep Events and Announcements: September 21, 2014
- The Junior International Law Scholars Association (JILSA) is holding its annual meeting on Friday, January 23, 2015, at the University of Miami School of Law. JILSA is an informal network of junior scholars at mostly American law schools who get together annually for a self-funded workshop. Junior faculty and fellows interested in presenting at the meeting should email proposals to MJ Durkee and Jean Galbraith by Friday, October 10. If you are interested in presenting a working draft, please send us the title, an abstract, and an indication of how far along the paper is. Because of the nature of the workshop, we can only include working drafts that have not yet been accepted for publication. We also workshop early stage projects. If you are interested in presenting on an early stage project, please let us know the working title and a few lines about the idea you are pursuing. Finally, if you are interested in being a discussant, please let us know. We will do our best to get back to everyone in November, and, for those whose working drafts are accepted for the conference, we will expect the authors to provide the drafts a few weeks before the conference.
- The Human Rights Essay Award Competition sponsored by the Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law seeks to stimulate the production of scholarly work in international human rights law. Awardees receive a full scholarship to attend the 2015 Program of Advanced Studies in Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in Washington D.C. This year’s topic is “Transitional Justice, International Human Rights and Humanitarian Law” and the deadline to submit is February 1, 2015. Participants have the flexibility to choose any subject related to the assigned topic. The best articles may be published in the American University International Law Review. For detailed guidelines about the award please visit the website or e-mail the Academy.
