2023 National Business Law Scholars Conference - Call for Papers
The website for the previously announced 2023 National Business Law Scholars conference at The University of Tennessee College of Law is live! The call for papers for the conference can be found there, but the essential information is repeated below, for your reference.
The conference will take place Thursday, June 15 and Friday, June 16, 2023. This is the 14th meeting of the National Business Law Scholars Conference, an annual conference that draws legal scholars from across the United States and around the world whose work spans a variety of business law disciplines.
Call for Papers
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.
You may use the “Submit now!” button on the conference website to submit an abstract by Friday, April 7, 2023. Please be prepared to include in your submission the following information about you and your work:
– E-mail address
– Paper title
– Paper description/abstract
– Keywords (3-5 words)
– Does the paper relate to DEI issues?*
– Dietary restrictions
– Mobility restrictions
*If yes, based on availability, would you prefer to be on (1) a DEI-focused panel, (2) a subject matter-focused panel (not specifically DEI-focused), or (3) any panel (i.e., no preference as to type of panel)?
If you have any questions, concerns, or special requests regarding the schedule, please indicate that in your submission or email Professor Eric C. Chaffee directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to submissions with notifications of acceptance a few weeks after the submission deadline. We anticipate the conference schedule will be circulated in May.
I hope to see many of you in Knoxville in June! It is a lovely time to be in East Tennessee. If you would like to do local sight-seeing, Nashville is only about 2.5 hours away by car, Chattanooga is 1.5 hours away, and Asheville, North Carolina is just 2 hours away. It can be less expensive to fly into those other local cities, and they all are great places to visit in this part of the world.
