Michigan Junior Scholars Conference

The University of Michigan Law School invites junior scholars to attend the 8th Annual Junior Scholars Conference, which will take place in person on April 22-23, 2022 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The conference provides junior scholars with a platform to present and discuss their work with peers, and to receive detailed feedback from senior members of the Michigan Law faculty. The Conference aims to promote fruitful collaboration between participants and to encourage their integration into a community of legal scholars. The Junior Scholars Conference is intended for academics in both law and related disciplines. Applications from graduate students, SJD/PhD candidates, postdoctoral researchers, lecturers, teaching fellows, and assistant professors (pre-tenure) who have not held an academic position for more than four years, are welcomed.

Applications are due by January 10, 2022.

To apply, please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words reflecting the unpublished work that you wish to present and a copy of your CV through the online submission form by January 10, 2022. Please submit all files as Microsoft Word documents. Please name the documents using the following format: Last name – First name – The nature of the document you are submitting (whether it be abstract, CV or funding). For example, the name of the abstract you are submitting would be: VAN DIJCKE – HANNAH – ABSTRACT. Selection will be based on the quality and originality of the
abstract as well as its capacity to engage with other proposals and to foster a collaborative dialogue.
Decisions will be communicated no later than February 9, 2022. Selected participants will be required to submit final papers by March 23, 2022, so that they may be sent to your faculty commentator and
circulated among participants in advance.

There seems to be a backup plan if the conference can't go live or if a particular presenter is unable to travel. And there's also some travel money available if you are otherwise unable to make the trip to Michigan.
