Call for Papers
AALS Section on Securities Regulation—2020 AALS Annual Meeting
Emerging Voices in Securities Regulation
January 2-5, 2020
The AALS Securities Regulation section invites proposals for its "Emerging Voices in Securities Regulation” works-in-progress workshop at the 2020 AALS Annual Meeting. The workshop will bring together junior and senior securities regulation scholars for the purpose of giving junior scholars feedback on their scholarship and helping them prepare their work for the spring law review submission cycle. A junior scholar is any untenured full-time faculty member as of January 2, 2020.
FORMAT: The program will involve multiple simultaneous roundtables, with one junior scholar, one or two senior scholars, and interested observers at each table. Junior scholars’ presentations of their drafts will be followed by oral comments from senior scholars and further discussion, as time permits.
SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Junior scholars who are interested in participating in the program should send an abstract (or longer summary) or draft-in-progress to Professor Eric C. Chaffee, Chair of the AALS Securities Regulation Section, at Eric.Chaffee@utoledo.edu, on or before September 16, 2019. The cover email should state the junior scholar’s institution, tenure status, number of years in his or her current position, and any previous positions in academia. The subject line of the email should read: “Submission—Sec Reg WIP Program.”
Junior scholars whose papers are selected for the program will need to submit their presentation drafts to Professor Chaffee by December 13, 2019, in order that the assigned commenters will have sufficient time to read the drafts prior to the Annual Meeting.
ELIGIBILITY: Junior scholars at AALS member law schools are eligible to submit proposals. Pursuant to AALS rules, faculty at fee-paid law schools, foreign faculty, adjunct and visiting faculty (without a full-time position at an AALS member law school), graduate students, fellows, and non-law school faculty are not eligible to submit. Please note that all presenters at the program are responsible for paying their own annual meeting registration fees and travel expenses.
