The good news is that there is a lot going on in the legal academy. The bad news is that this site can be overwhelming to busy academics who just want to find what’s relevant to them.
One answer? Use our categories.
When we post events and calls for papers, we tag them with one or more of the categories listed in the sidebar. That means that when you visit the site, you can look for just the events in certain subject areas, whether Business Law, Human Rights Law, or Law and Gender. Or you can look just at the listings of Colloquia/Workshops or just Calls for Papers.
If you use a feed reader (also known as RSS reader or aggregator), you can subscribe to the feed for selected categories. Our tech team set this up in response to a professor’s suggestion — he liked the site but found it overwhelming to get announcements about conferences that weren’t in his area. Now he can follow his topics (environmental law and administrative law) and you can follow yours, whatever they are.
