Call for Papers: Sabin Colloquium on Innovative Environmental Law Scholarship

Check out this great Call for Papers for junior environmental law scholars... with thanks to Michael Gerrard:
Call for Papers
Columbia Law School
New York, New York
May 2-3, 2013
This Colloquium will allow junior environmental law scholars to present early-stage work and receive constructive feedback from a panel of senior scholars and from each other.
Eligible applicants are pre-tenure professors, fellows, visiting assistant professors, and other junior scholars in similar academic positions.
The panel will select the proposals for discussion based on the degree of innovation they exhibit, the extent to which they point toward practical solutions to environmental problems, and whether, based on the scholarly and analytical quality of the proposals, they are likely to lead to high-quality work products.
To enter, submit a cover letter, an outline or concept paper of 10-20 double-spaced pages, and a C.V. to by January 15, 2013.  If an article has already been drafted, please just submit a summary of no more than 20 pages.  Footnotes are not expected.  Articles that have already been accepted for publication are not eligible. This event is for early-stage work that can still be significantly shaped by the discussion at the Colloquium.
Authors of selected papers will be notified by March 15.  All Colloquium participants will be expected to participate in the full program (the afternoon and evening of May 2, and all day on May 3) and to read and comment on each others’ proposals.  Thanks to the generosity of Andrew Sabin, the travel costs of all participants will be reimbursed.
Selection panel:
Jonathan Cannon -- University of Virginia
Ann Carlson -- University of California at Los Angeles
Daniel Farber -- University of California at Berkeley
Jody Freeman -- Harvard Law School
