NOTICE AND CALL FOR PAPERS

FAMILY LAW IN THE 21ST CENTURY

            The first decade of the 21st century has been an exciting time for family law scholars, teachers and practitioners.  Family law is more dynamic than ever, with changing social definitions of family and greater use of science and technology to create families.  Themes that have emerged in the first decade of the century will likely inform family law reforms in the coming decades.   The Midwest Family Law Consortium seeks papers that explore these issues and other hot topics for the 4th annual conference, June 16-17, 2011, at Michigan State University College of Law.

            While papers that address cutting edge themes in family law are encouraged, all paper and panel proposals are welcomed.  In addition, professors who wish to discuss techniques and insights concerning family law education are welcome to submit proposals for a teaching panel or panels.

            Interested persons should submit a one-page proposal with the name, title, and institutional affiliation of the presenter(s) and a brief summary of the proposed presentation to Cynthia Lee Starnes, Professor of Law, MSU College of Law at starnesc@law.msu.edu .  Proposals submitted before January 15 will be given priority consideration.

            The conference will begin Thursday, June 16, 2011, with an opening reception and dinner. Conference sessions will be held on Friday, June 17th and conclude by 5:00 p.m.

            The Midwest Family Law Consortium is an organization of law schools whose members collaborate to advance family law scholarship and teaching. Founded by the family law faculty of the University of Missouri Kansas City, William Mitchell College of Law and Indiana University Indianapolis, with additional sponsoring members Michigan State and Washburn law schools, the consortium is open to any law school, but serves primarily the Midwest region.
