2021 National Business Law Scholars Conference
June 17-18, 2021
The University of Tennessee College of Law
The National Business Law Scholars Conference (NBLSC) will be held on Thursday and Friday, June 17-18, 2021. The 2021 conference is being hosted by The University of Tennessee College of Law. The conference will be conducted in a hybrid or online format, as determined by the NBLSC planning committee in the early part of 2021.
This is the twelfth meeting of the NBLSC, an annual conference that draws legal scholars from across the United States and around the world. We welcome all scholarly submissions relating to business law. Junior scholars and those considering entering the academy are especially encouraged to participate. If you are thinking about entering the academy and would like to receive informal mentoring and learn more about job market dynamics, please let us know when you make your submission. We expect to be in a position to offer separate programming for aspiring law professors and market entrants, as we have done in the past, likely on a separate date after the conference concludes.
Please use the conference website, which will be available at https://law.utk.edu/ in January, to submit an abstract or paper by April 9, 2021. An announcement will be made on the Business Law Prof Blog when the conference site becomes available. If you have any questions, concerns, or special requests regarding the schedule, please email Professor Eric C. Chaffee at email@example.com. We will respond to submissions with notifications of acceptance shortly after the deadline. We anticipate the conference schedule will be circulated in May.
