Reminder of Upcoming Deadline to Submit Proposals for Central States Law Schools Association Conference
The Central States Law Schools Association (CSLSA) Annual Scholarship Conference is scheduled for October 19-20, 2012 at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Law faculty are invited to submit proposals to present papers at the conference. Please send abstracts of proposals (500 words or less) to Secretary Missy Lonegrass at Missy.Lonegrass[at]law.lsu.edu by September 15, 2012. Any late submissions will be considered on a space available basis only.
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.
For those who are interested, the CSLSA mentorship program pairs interested junior scholars with more senior mentors in their fields of expertise to provide feedback on their presentations or papers. To participate in the mentorship program as either a mentor or mentee, please contact Vice-President Elizabeth Young at ely001[at]uark.edu.
