CALL FOR PRESENTERS
AALS Section on Property
“The Place and Scope of Economic Analysis
within Competing Conceptions of Property”
2015 AALS Annual Meeting
January 2-5, 2015
The AALS Section on Property is pleased to announce this Call for Presenters for its program during the 2015 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The Section’s broadly-themed program, entitled “The Place and Scope of Economic Analysis within Competing Conceptions of Property,” will include a diversity of opinions on the proper place, scope, role, and utility of economic analysis in understanding, evaluating, and comparing varying conceptions of property. Confirmed speakers include Eric Claeys (George Mason University School of Law), Henry Smith (Harvard Law School), Laura Underkuffler (Cornell Law School), and Lua Yuille (University of Kansas School of Law). Through this Call for Presenters, the Section seeks one additional speaker who will advance this session’s broad theme and complement the scholarly perspectives of the confirmed speakers.
Full-time faculty members of AALS member law schools are invited to submit a one-page abstract of their presentations to Timothy Mulvaney (Texas A&M University School of Law), Chair of the AALS Section on Property, at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 20, 2014. A review panel consisting of five property scholars will select a submission for inclusion in the program and notify the selected presenter by mid-July. The selected presenter will be responsible for paying his/her annual meeting registration fee and travel expenses.
There is no publication commitment associated with this panel. However, the Texas A&M University Law Review graciously has offered to publish essays or articles authored by any or all of the presenters on the topic of the panel.
Please feel free to direct questions to Professor Mulvaney at email@example.com.
