AALS Property Law Section Junior Scholars Works in Progess Call For Papers
The AALS Property Law Section invites junior property scholars to submit works-in-progress for a junior scholars panel at the upcoming AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans. The panel will take place on Sunday, January 10, 2010 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.. At the panel, paper au-thors will have the opportunity to present their papers and receive commentary from senior scholars knowledgeable about their paper topics.
Eligibility: The panel is open to scholars who (a) currently have a permanent or visiting ap-pointment at an AALS member or fee-paid school; (b) have been teaching for six or fewer years; and (c) do not yet have tenure. Papers that have been accepted for publication may be submitted for consideration, but only if they are early enough in the production process for the author to fully incorporate comments provided at the panel.
Submissions: Two papers and an alternate will be selected for the panel by blind peer review. Papers should be submitted by e-mail to both Carol Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Steven Eagle (email@example.com), with the subject line “Property Junior Scholars Panel.”
To facilitate blind review, authors should place their names and other identifying information on a separate cover page only. Authors also should alter or delete references within the text that would reveal their identities to a referee. During the selection process, papers will be judged by how successfully they establish their contributions in a scholarly manner and by how substan-tially those contributions add to current property law scholarship.
Deadline: Papers must be submitted by Noon, October 26, 2010 (EDT).
