junior scholars conference in Texas

Inaugural Texas Junior Legal Scholars Conference,
Texas Wesleyan School of Law
August 10-11th, 2007

Sponsored by:
Texas Wesleyan University School of Law

And in cooperation with:
Southern Methodist University, Dedman School of Law
South Texas College of Law
St. Mary's University of San Antonio School of Law
Texas Southern University, Thurgood Marshall School of Law
Texas Tech University School of Law
University of Houston Law Center

Seven of the nine Texas Law Schools have come together to create a forum for untenured scholars in Texas and throughout the United States to present papers and works in progress in an informal atmosphere while getting feedback from other untenured legal scholars.  They are encouraging submissions on a wide range of topics and from many perspectives -- legal, economic, critical, historic, comparative, literary, political, sociological, philosophical, practical, and interdisciplinary -- so presumably legal writing scholarship is fair game.

deadline for submissions: June 1, 2007
notification of accepted papers: June 18, 2007


Submissions received after June 1 may be accepted on a space-available basis.  Proposals must contain: (1) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (2) the title of your presentation, and (3) a brief description of your presentation idea. Completed papers are not required, although they are welcome. For full panel proposals, you need to submit the above information for each participant.

E-mail submissions are preferred; all submissions should be sent to:

Professor Meredith Conway
Texas Wesleyan University School of Law
1515 Commerce Street
Fort Worth, Texas 76102

E-mail mconway@law.txwes.edu
