CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
– DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 27 –
AALS Section on Property
Junior Scholar Mentoring Session
2015 AALS Annual Meeting
Property Section Breakfast
January 4, 2015
The AALS Section on Property is pleased to invite junior faculty members to submit an abstract of a current writing project or an abstract outlining a possible paper idea. Authors of selected abstracts will informally present their theses/ideas during a mentoring session to be held as one part of the Section breakfast at the 2015 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The breakfast will take place at 7:00 am on January 4, 2015, just before the Section’s 8:30 am panel program.
The goal of this event is to create a safe and organized (but informal) space at the AALS meeting for junior property scholars to meet and engage with more experienced scholars. Selected presenters will have a maximum of 5 minutes to informally present their emerging theses/ideas to their table at the breakfast, after which the members of the Section at each table can offer feedback. Each table will have at least one member of the Section’s Executive Committee as well as other more senior property scholars who will provide mentoring advice, including constructive comments and guidance designed to help suggest ideas and directions of research that might assist with the junior scholar’s project.
Interested full-time, junior faculty members (defined for these purposes as 10 years or less in the academy) of AALS member law schools are invited to submit an abstract of one to three pages to Professor Timothy M. Mulvaney (Texas A&M University School of Law), Chair of the AALS Section on Property, at firstname.lastname@example.org by the new, extended deadline of October 27, 2014. During this extended submission period, a review panel consisting of six property scholars will select an additional one to three junior scholars’ abstracts for these informal presentations and table discussions at the Section breakfast. Selected presenters will be notified of the review panel’s decision in early November. Each selected presenter will be responsible for paying his/her annual meeting registration fee, the registration fee for attending the Property Section breakfast, and travel expenses.
Please feel free to direct questions to Professor Mulvaney at email@example.com.
