From our friends at the University of Washington. Several current and former Environmental Law Prof bloggers have participated in this conference, and I think we would all agree that it's well worth the trip.
Call for Abstracts
UW Junior Environmental Law Scholars Annual Workshop
University of Washington School of Law
July 9-11, 2014
The University of Washington is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual UW Young Environmental Law Scholars Workshop.
This collegial two-day workshop features discussion of works-in-progress by early career environmental law scholars: professors with two or fewer years of tenure, pre-tenure professors, visiting assistant professors, or legal fellows. We invite submissions from the broad fields of environmental, natural resources, and energy law. Prior workshop participants are welcome to submit new works.
Participating junior scholars will be asked to submit an unpublished work-in-progress approximately one month before the workshop.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 short introduction 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
- Lisa Heinzerling - John Carroll Research Professor of Law, Georgetown University
- Christine A. Klein - Chesterfield Smith Professor of Law, University of Florida
- John Copeland Nagle - John N. Matthews Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame
- William H. Rodgers - Stimson Bullitt Professor of Environmental Law, University of Washington
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 15, 2014.
All meals will be included. Participants will be responsible for their travel and lodging costs.
