KCON XVI: It's On!!

We are so pleased to share that the 16th International Conference on Contracts -- a/k/a KCON XVI -- will be held at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth on Friday and Saturday, March 17-18, 2023.  A Call for Papers will be forthcoming, but the organizers want to give you a chance to start planning.

Screen Shot 2022-08-08 at 12.35.18 PMHistorically, the conference is highly inclusive.  In particular, we have always especially encouraged junior scholars to participate by presenting papers and works-in-progress, by organizing panels on topics relating to their research interests, and by volunteering to help organize and promote the event.  While most of the current organizers have aged some, nearly all of us got involved as relatively junior faculty members looking to expand our scholarly networks and showcase our work, and it’s part of our mission to keep that tradition alive.  If you have an idea for a panel but want help lining up panelists or commentators, we can help.

The conference is intentionally broad.  Proposals relating to any aspect of domestic or international contract or commercial law are welcome, including (but not limited to) doctrine, theory, legislation, history, pedagogy, practice, consumer issues, employment, and social issues.  Proposals that cross traditional contract law boundaries are particularly encouraged. 

If you have questions, feel free to contact any of the volunteer organizers:

Dan O’Gorman
Jamie Fox
Dani Hart
Hila Keren

So mark the date and plan to join us for Bluebonnet season in Fort Worth in the spring.
