Call for Papers: CSLSA at the U. of OKLAHOMA! (Boomer Sooner!)


The official details are below, but let me preface this post with my deep and fervent hope that you'll consider coming to Norman, OK for this year's CSLSA conference. The conference is not subject specific, but usually includes panels on immigration, international law, and criminal law. From experience, I can report that CSLSA provides a friendly, intimate, and collegial setting in which to present scholarship. It's open to both junior and senior scholars (and pesky midlevels like myself).






SEPTEMBER 22-23, 2023

The Central States Law Schools Association invites you to submit to present at the 2023 Annual Scholarship Conference, which will be held on Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23, 2023, at the University of Oklahoma College of Law in Norman.

Papers on all law-related topics will be considered. Scholars from member and nonmember schools are invited to participate. Early stage projects are welcome, as are near-final manuscripts. There is no need to submit a manuscript or draft paper, but please provide a brief abstract or description to help the organizers to create the panel schedule.

CSLSA is special for being an intimate, friendly, and relaxed works-in-progress conference, involving participants from a wide array of legal fields. It's a great conference for anyone looking to network with or get feedback from persons outside their regular scholarly niche. And it's a particularly great opportunity for junior profs – both for the networking opportunities and the supportive atmosphere it provides.

About CSLSA: CSLSA is an organization of law schools dedicated to providing a forum for conversation and collaboration among law school academics. Scholars from member and nonmember schools are invited to submit, attend, and participate in the annual conference.

About OU and Norman: Norman is a walkable city bursting with arts, music, restaurants, and funky shopping. OU’s distinctive architecture, dubbed “Cherokee Gothic” by Frank Lloyd Wright, mixes traditional collegiate elements and Native American design. OU’s world-class free-admission Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art hosts renown collections of Native American art and French Impressionism. And the acclaimed Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is next-door to the College of Law.
