Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Education: A Call for Papers

CALL FOR PAPERS

AALS SECTION ON NONPROFIT AND PHILANTHROPY LAW SESSION

2019 ANNUAL MEETING, JANUARY 2-6, 2019 NEW ORLEANS, LA

Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Education

(Co-sponsored by the Section on Education Law)

 The AALS Section on Nonprofit and Philanthropy Law is happy to announce a call for papers to be presented as works-in-progress in our committee session at the 2019 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, from January 2-6, 2019.

Theme: Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Education

Education has been changing and it is not clear that nonprofit law is keeping up.  In both post-secondary and primary/secondary education, there continue to be more and more growth of for-profit, nontraditional nonprofit, and mixed forms of educational institutions.  In addition, changes to charitable giving and endowments, including legal changes in the recent tax reform, may have an impact on educational organizations.  This program focuses on legal issues faced by educational organizations and regulators as education changes.

Eligibility: Scholars teaching at AALS member or nonmember fee-paid schools

Due Date: Friday, August 10, 2018

Form and Content of Submission: Please submit scholarly articles or drafts that address the theme (Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Education) in some way.  The theme should be interpreted broadly, and we invite submissions from a wide variety of methodological approaches.  Articles may range from early drafts to articles that have been submitted for publication, but not articles that will have already been published by January 6, 2019.

Submission Method: please submit papers electronically in Microsoft Word format to bleff@wcl.american.edu with "AALS Nonprofit and Philanthropy Law" in the email subject line.

Submission Review: Papers will be selected for inclusion in the program after review by members of the AALS Nonprofit and Philanthropy Law section and representatives of the Education Law section.

Additional Information: Unfortunately, the section is not able to provide any funding to presenters, who will be responsible for their own expenses.  If you have any questions, please contact Benjamin Leff at bleff@wcl.american.edu.
