I just returned from the 2011 Northeast Regional Scholarship and Teaching Development Workshop at Albany Law School. This was a great event for junior scholars with a strong showing by land use and environmental law faculty. There were papers on exactions, big box retail (I learned the term "ghost boxes"), conservation easements, federal land use, and other fascinating topics. The presence of so many junior scholars in our field was exciting and invigorating. It gives me faith that there will be many exciting works and conferences to come.
As this was a junior scholar conference, it presented a safe space where we untenured masses could exchange work with minimal fear of embarrassment. What I would love to see next is a way for junior scholars to connect with senior scholars in the field to get feedback on early work. Any thoughts or suggestions?
