Call for Papers
UW Young Environmental Law Scholars Annual Workshop
University of Washington School of Law
July 10-12, 2013
The University of Washington is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual UW Young Environmental Law Scholars Workshop. This collegial two-day workshop features discussion of works-in-progress by ten early career environmental law scholars: professors with two or fewer years of tenure, pre-tenure professors, visiting assistant professors, or legal fellows. We welcome submissions from the broad fields of environmental, natural resources, and energy law.
Participating junior scholars will be asked to submit an unpublished work-in-progress one month before the workshop. Each paper will be circulated to the entire group for review and assigned to one senior scholar and one junior scholar for detailed commentary. At the workshop, each paper will receive an hour of discussion: a brief presentation by the author, followed by detailed comments from the designated junior and senior scholars, and then a more general review by the group. The overall aims of this process are to promote scholarly discussion and to facilitate rigorous early review for works to be offered for publication in a law journal.
The senior scholars participating in this year’s workshop are:
- Robert T. Anderson - Director, Native American Law Center, University of Washington
- William H. Rodgers - Stimson Bullitt Professor of Environmental Law, University of Washington
- Mark Squillace - Director, Natural Resources Law Center, University of Colorado
- Wendy E. Wagner - Joe A. Worsham Centennial Professor, University of Texas
- Sandra B. Zellmer - Robert B. Daugherty Professor of Law, University of Nebraska
To apply, please submit a cover letter, an abstract of no more than 500 words, and a C.V. to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2013.
All meals will be included. Participants will be responsible for their travel and lodging costs.
