LSA Call for Papers and why it's never too early to plan your summer conference/vacation
Law and Society Association has an open call for papers for their annual meeting/conference, which will be held on June 5-8 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The theme of the meeting, Sociolegal Conversations across a Sea of Islands, offers little for corporate law scholars at first blush, but includes a few corporate law subtopics (as a big tent conference, papers, regardless of the tenuous connection, tend to get accepted):
- Regulation, including new forms of non-governmental and trans-national regulatory approaches and their relationship to traditional national regulatory mechanisms.
- Financial markets, trade, foreign investment, and the global impact of the financial crisis in a broad range of areas that are of interest to sociolegal scholars.
For the past two years that I have been attending this conference, it has been a great opportunity for me to connect with other corporate law scholars as there are always several strong corporate law panels. It is also a great way to jump start my research agenda for the summer and generate some post-grading enthusiasm for writing. If you are interested in presenting a paper at this conference and want to get placed on a corporate law panel, please send me an email by November 17th at email@example.com and include your name/contact and an abstract of your paper. I am collecting corporate law abstracts and then trying to organize panels out of the topics that people submit. The strength of the conference depends upon the participation of scholars like you, so please think about attending this year (and come on...it's in Hawaii...).
