Seeking others interested in AALS Open Source Idea
For law professors:
The AALS just sent out a request for Open Source proposals for the next annual meeting. See Below. I am writing to see if others are interested in joining me in putting together a proposal focusing on (tentatively): "legal implications of the new gilded age." I am interested in working on such a proposal and if you are as well, please get in touch with me.
|Association of American Law Schools
|Request for Open Source Proposals
requesting proposals for Open Source programs for the 2009 AALS Annual Meeting
in San Diego, California. Open Source sessions at the Annual Meeting are
innovative programs proposed by groups of faculty members and selected by a
committee in a competitive search.
The goal is to encourage a "bottom up" process in which scholars
collaborate to develop fresh and exciting ideas for a program at the Annual
Meeting. It is not a Section, law school, organization or institution-sponsored
program. It is a program developed by a group of faculty members in various
subject matters, who have an innovative topic that they would like to present at
the Annual Meeting.
developing the proposal you should consider the following:
· Is the
· Is there a
diversity of presenters and multiplicity of planners?
· Is there
junior and senior teacher involvement?
· Does the
topic cross over common issues and transcend a particular subject area?
· Would there be a publication coming out
of the submission?
· Will the program format require
expensive audio-visual equipment?
should not feature a program or
subject that could be offered by an AALS Section or conflict with other programs
being presented at the 2009 AALS Annual Meeting.
Submissions of novel ideas for programs should be e-mailed to:
April 10, 2008. Please include information
identifying the planners of the program; the process of how the program idea was
generated; the topic with a description and explanation of what the program is
trying to accomplish; the list of proposed speakers; if there will be a
publication of the program; and any other pertinent information that you believe
would be helpful to the reviewing
