The William & Mary School of Law is sponsoring a workshop for junior scholars working on legal issues related to children and families. The workshop will be held this summer on the campus of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. This is the second in a series of junior faculty workshops on topics related to family law and children and the law. The first was hosted in 2009 by the Frances Lewis Law Center at Washington & Lee University.
The workshop will include both junior and senior scholars. Each junior scholar will present his or her paper to the group, with comments from a senior scholar and from the audience to follow. The senior scholars will also present papers during the conference, on topics of their choosing.
The workshop can accommodate eight junior scholars. Applications are welcome from untenured faculty and recently tenured faculty and from those who will be joining a faculty in the upcoming academic year. Junior clinicians are very welcome. There is no registration fee for this conference and the William & Mary School of Law is pleased to furnish meals and one night’s lodging for the participants. The workshop will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 15 and end at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, July 16.
Junior scholars wishing to participate in the workshop are asked to e-mail an abstract and a curriculum vitae by June 9, 2010 to Administrative Assistant Felicia Burton at firstname.lastname@example.org. The senior scholars participating in the workshop will select papers no later than June 16.
