Call for Papers: Contracts

                                       CALL FOR PAPERS
                  INAUGURAL SPRING CONTRACTS CONFERENCE

                           Friday-Saturday, February 24-25, 2006
                                        Fort Worth, Texas

                           Celebrate the Diversity of Contract Law

Submissions are cordially invited for the inaugural Spring Contracts Conference, a two-day program hosted by the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law.   Papers and works in progress are welcome from those who are working in any aspect of Contract law, including commercial sales topics, and from any methodological perspective, whether doctrinal, theoretical, empirical, historical, economic, critical, comparative, or interdisciplinary.  Works that take an international or civil law approach are also welcome.  Junior scholars are particularly encouraged to participate.

The year 2006 marks some important anniversaries: It's the 25th anniversary of the Second Restatement, and also the 250th anniversary of William Murray, Earl of Mansfield, becoming Chief Justice of England.  It's the anniversary of some famous cases, including the 40th anniversary of Odorizzi v. Bloomfield School District (duress), the 70th of Webb v. McGowin (consideration), and the 90th of Varney v. Ditmars (indefiniteness).  We expect that there will be panels relating to some or all of these topics.  Panel organizers may send out individual calls for papers on those topics.

Those who would like to organize panels of 3-4 papers with a connecting theme are welcome to submit proposals.  Panel proposals should include the name and contact information of the moderator or organizer, and a summary of the proposed papers or works in progress.

Individual submissions should be made by a brief abstract (one page is sufficient) that includes contact information for the author.  Individual submissions will be grouped on panels with like submissions.  There is no publication commitment for the conference, but we expect that some of the panels will arrange for law review publication.  The Texas Wesleyan Law Review may offer publication to selected papers for a special symposium issue.

Deadline for submissions is Friday, November 18, 2005, although earlier submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.  Submissions after that date will be considered on a space-available basis.  Submissions (E-mail is encouraged) should be sent to:
