The Association for Law, Property and Society announces that its 4th Annual Meeting will be held at the University of Minnesota Law School on April 26-27, 2013. The conference website is here. This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite conferences of the year and I hope to see many of you there.
Here's the announcement:
The ALPS annual meeting attracts over 100 participants, approximately one third of whom come from outside of North America and a number of whom do interdisciplinary work. Registration and paper/panel submission is available through the conference website or directly, here.
The deadline for submitting papers and panels is March 1, 2013, but registration for the conference will continue to be available after that date. Please do not submit papers and panels after March 1, 2013 as part of your registration without having emailed Hari Osofsky, firstname.lastname@example.org for permission to submit late. We will do our best to accommodate late submission requests, but can only guarantee that proposals submitted by the March 1, 2013 deadline will be able to be considered for the conference.
This year’s registration includes an option to register to attend without presenting and an option to submit complete panels in addition to individual papers. As in previous years, we will have both draft paper panels and early works-in-progress panels dedicated to brainstorming scholarship at its beginning stages. We also plan to support early-career scholars in their development and in connecting to mentors through the conference events. A discounted early registration rate of $145 is available until March 1, 2013; after that date, the registration rate is $175.
We welcome papers on any subject related to property law and from a diversity of viewpoints. Property related topics areas can include but are not limited to: · Civil Rights & Inequality (including Race, Gender, Religion, Income, Disability, etc)/Critical Legal Studies · Economics and Property Law · Energy/Environment/Climate Change · History of Property · Housing/Urban Development/Mortgages and Foreclosure · Indian Law/Indigenous Rights Law · Intellectual Property · International Property Law/Human Rights and Property/Cultural Property · Land Use Planning/Real Estate/Entrepreneurship · Property and Personhood/Concept of Home · Property Theory · Takings and Eminent Domain · Teaching Property
