The deadline is nearing for Family Law Professors to submit their proposals for presentations at the Family and Juvenile Law Section of the 2008 AALS Annual Meeting (January 2-6, 2008, New York City). The Panel topic will be "The Moral (and Policy) Foundations of Family Law" - discussing the ideas that either are, or should be, foundational, either for family law as a whole, or for some significant sub-area within family law.
Those taking part must write a 2-5 page (double-spaced) abstract, summarizing the (15-20 minute) presentation you would give if selected. The abstract must related to the Panel topic, given above.
Abstracts are due by 5:00 pm (Central Time), February 28, 2007.
Because abstracts will be judged “blind,” the following process will be used. Those taking part will need to send TWO files by e-mail attachment to Prof. Janet Richards (Memphis) firstname.lastname@example.org
The first file will contain identifying information (name, law school affiliation, contact information, along with the title of the abstract); the second file will contain the title and the abstract itself – but with NO identifying information. Only the second file will be forwarded for review.
Selections will be made as soon as possible after the deadline passes.
