Women, Gender & the Law Emerging Scholar Award: Call for Submissions


The Elisabeth Haub School of Law is pleased to announce the competition for its annual Women, Gender & the Law Emerging Scholar Award.  This paper competition is open to all having with five (5) or fewer years of full-time law teaching experience as of July 1, 2024. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2024.


The purpose of the award is to encourage and recognize excellent legal scholarship related to gender and the law.  The work chosen for the Women, Gender & the Law Emerging Scholar Award should make a substantial contribution to legal literature and reflect original research and/or major developments in previously reported research.


Papers will be reviewed on a blind basis by a committee comprised of members of the Haub Law faculty with expertise in this area.  The winner of the competition will be invited to present the paper to selected students and faculty at Haub Law (located in White Plains, NY) during the 2024-2025 academic year, with reasonable travel expenses from within the continental U.S. paid, or via Zoom, as circumstances permit and by mutual agreement.




All persons who have held full-time teaching positions for five (5) or fewer full academic years as of July 1, 2024 are eligible for consideration. One does not have to be on the tenure-track or tenured to be eligible. Time as a VAP or Fellow does not "count against" the five (5) year clock.


There is no subject-matter limitation for submissions, as long as the paper relates in some way to gender and the law.


Jointly authored papers are accepted as long as each author independently meets the eligibility requirements.




There is no publication commitment associated with the competition. 


Papers are eligible regardless of whether they were published prior to submission date, are scheduled to be published after the submission date, or are not yet under submission.


Each applicant is limited to one (1) entry.


Papers considered in prior years' competitions are eligible for resubmission.


There are no page-length or word-count limitations.


All publications (including scholarly articles, book chapters, legal briefs and other writings) are eligible for consideration.




We will accept submissions for the Emerging Scholar Award from June 1, 2024, through July 1, 2024. The winner will be announced by August 30, 2024.


To participate, please email your work, redacted as necessary to preserve anonymity (for the blind judging process), as a portable data file (PDF) to Judy Jaeger, Senior Staff Associate, at [email protected] with the subject line "Emerging Scholar Award."


Please include in the body of the email your name, institutional affiliation and confirmation that you meet the eligibility requirements.


Unredacted or late papers will not be considered.
