From the release:
On Oct. 31-Nov. 1,
2013, the ABA criminal justice section will host
its annual conference, this year at the Omni Shoreham in Washington,
D.C. The first event of the conference, on the afternoon of Thursday,
Oct. 31, is a workshop for scholarly papers relating to criminal
justice. The workshop will run from 1-4 p.m.
All papers on criminal law, criminal procedure, or criminal justice
topics are welcome. Participants will present their work in a
roundtable format, and abstracts or drafts will be shared among
presenters and discussants in advance of the workshop. Workshop
presenters must also attend the criminal justice panels on Friday,
Nov. 1. There will be three academic panels scheduled on Friday, one
prior to lunch and two in the afternoon.
This is an excellent opportunity for academics at any stage of their
careers, or those who would like to transition to academia, to
workshop pieces at an early stage of development or obtain feedback on
more developed pieces. Workshop presenters will be responsible for
their own travel and hotel costs, and will be required to pay the
conference registration fee.
Rooms at the Omni Shoreham are available at the conference rate of
$169/night and can be reserved at 1-800-THE-OMNI (800/843-6664) (ask
for the ABA 2013 Criminal Justice Section Fall Program).
To apply to workshop a paper, please email an abstract of your paper
of no more than 500 words to Will Berry at firstname.lastname@example.org by
Sept. 1, 2013. Space is limited and presenters will be chosen by
members of the organizing committee.
Please spread the word to those who might be interested, including
those not yet in academia.
