Call for Papers -- Annual Meeting on Law and Society

Trusts and Estates Collaborative Research Network (CRN56)


Annual Meeting on Law and Society

San Juan, Puerto Rico

June 1-4, 2023 


Abstracts deadline: 8 November 2022

The Trusts and Estates Collaborative Research Network invites you to submit your paper and panel proposals for the upcoming annual meeting on Law and Society, to be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This conference will be in-person only. There will be no hybrid or virtual panels. 

We invite papers and proposals that touch in any way on succession (inheritance), equity, or wealth transfers more generally. Subjects of inquiry may involve any aspect of government or social policy with respect to trusts, estates, inheritance, wealth transfer, equity or courts with jurisdiction over these issues.

The conference theme of ‘Separate and Unequal’ offers an opportunity to explore the role of law in normalizing inequality and discrimination. However, papers are not limited to these topics.

We welcome any papers on the topic of trusts and estates. For more information about the conference theme, visit:
