The Section on Immigration Law of the Association of American Law Schools invites papers and works in progress for its “New Voices in Immigration Law” works-in-progress session during the 2019 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA, which will take place January 2-6, 2019. This session has been scheduled for Saturday, January 5, 2019, at 3:30pm. We particularly welcome submissions from individuals who have never presented an immigration law paper at the AALS Annual Meeting and from junior scholars. Submissions may address any aspect of immigration and citizenship law, and we are also open to receiving papers that explore these topics from alternative disciplines or perspectives. Please note that individuals presenting at the program are responsible for their own Annual Meeting registration fee and travel expenses.
Submission Guidelines: The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2018. Instead of a full-length paper, please submit a concept note of 5-15 double-spaced pages that contains a summary of the key ideas. If you have already written a full-length paper, please send an excerpt of the paper (not to exceed 15 double- spaced pages) with an explanatory introduction. Priority will be given to individuals who have never presented an immigration law paper at the AALS Annual Meeting and to junior scholars.
Please email submissions in Microsoft Word format to AALS2019ImmigrationLaw@kalhan.com (Subject: AALS 2019: New Voices in Immigration Law). In your email, please indicate whether you have previously presented your work at the AALS Annual Meeting, and if so when.
Inquiries: Please direct any questions or inquiries to Anil Kalhan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
