Call for Papers: Wells Conference on Adoption Law

Call for Presentation and Papers
Maintaining a Family:
Post Adoption Challenges for Families
7th Annual Wells Conference
on Adoption Law
March 17, 2011
Capital University Law School
Columbus, Ohio

 

The conference is seeking proposals for presentations and papers emphasizing the following themes:

  • Procuring Pre-Adoption Safeguards to Secure Post-Adoption Success

    Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: records disclosure requirements, Hague Convention pre-adoption safeguards, and public versus private adoption disclosure requirements.

  • Overcoming Health and Assimilation Issues Facing Adopted Children and Their Families

    Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: mental health issues common in adopted children, specific health issues associated with international adoptions, and assimilation issues surrounding interracial and international adoptions.
  • What Happens When an Adoption Fails?

    Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: the nature of wrongful adoption lawsuits, immunity and liability of adoption agencies, and support services available to adoptive parents.  

Participants are asked to lead a forty-minute discussion on one of the above topics.  Each topic will have three panel members who will give a presentation, followed by a discussion at the end.  In addition, participants are requested to prepare an article associated with their presentation for publication in the Capital University Law Review next year.  The article would be due on September 1, 2011.

Capital University Law School is home to the National Center for Adoption Law & Policy.  In light of the University’s strong focus on child welfare and adoption law, the Capital University Law Review initiated the Wells Conference on Adoption Law in 2005.  The First Annual Wells Conference was entitled “Illuminating the Child’s Perspective,” and highlighted speakers such as Barbara Bennett Woodhouse, Elizabeth Bartholet, and Martin Guggenheim.  Each year the Wells Conference attracts respected professionals and academics who are pioneers in the field of Adoption Law.  With your help, we expect to continue that tradition this year.  Thank you for your consideration.    

Please send your proposals by September 24, 2010 to the Capital University Law Review Symposium Editor, Ashley Blackburn (ablackburn@law.capital.edu
