This year's Northeast People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference will be held September 12-14, 2008 at Boston University School of Law, and there's still time to sign up either to present a work in progress or to comment on a work in progress.
These sessions provide the opportunity to present a scholarly work in progress and receive feedback, both from an assigned commentator and from the audience. This is an excellent way to develop and refine a scholarly project in a supportive environment. Work in progress submissions from junior faculty and faculty of color are particularly welcome. A project can address any subject matter and need not be limited to the conference themes (this year: Education & the Economy: The Real Lives of People of Color).
Those interested in applying to present a project should submit a working title and brief (200 word) abstract by May 15, 2008. If you are a professor willing to comment on a work in progress, please contact us with a list of appropriate subject matters. All correspondence should be sent to either Professor Fabio Arcila, Jr., at firstname.lastname@example.org or Professor Alafair Burke at email@example.com.
