The Central States Law Schools Association (CSLSA) has announced the date for its 2010 Annual Meeting and has issued a call for paper presentations. The annual meeting will be held at the University of North Dakota School of Law in Grand Forks, ND on September 24-25, 2010. CSLSA invites law faculty of all disciplines to submit proposals to present papers or works in progress. And, although CSLSA is a regional association, it welcomes participation from law faculty from outside the region. In the past few years, CSLSA has had some excellent presentations by international law scholars, as well as many others.
The purpose of CSLSA is to foster scholarly exchanges among law faculty across legal disciplines. The annual CSLSA conference is a forum for legal scholars, especially more junior scholars, to present working papers or finished articles on any law-related topic in a relaxed and supportive setting where junior and senior scholars from various disciplines are available to comment. More mature scholars have an opportunity to test new ideas in a less formal setting than is generally available for their work. Mentoring by more senior scholars is also available to junior scholars.
There is no registration fee for participants from CSLSA member schools. In addition, CSLSA subsidizes the cost of travel for presenters for member schools. For more information on how to join CSLSA, contact the Treasurer, Carolyn Dessin, through the CSLSA website. To submit a paper proposal, send an abstract or précis of no more than 500 words to the CSLSA Secretary, Wes Oliver, at Widener University School of Law by August 31, 2009.
