MAPOC Works-in-Progress Workshop + Student Writing Competition

American University Washington College of Law

American University Washington College of Law hosts the Mid-Atlantic People of Color (MAPOC) Works-in-Progress Workshop in conjunction with the legal conference (On the Rights of Children) Jan. 28-30, 2016. Abstracts are due by Nov. 30, 2015.

MAPOC’s long-standing works-in-progress (WIP) workshop provides a comfortable and constructive environment where authors can workshop scholarship in any stage of development to a dedicated discussant and supportive audience.

MAPOC is also sponsoring a student writing competition open to all currently enrolled law students of any level, J.D., LL.M., and S.J.D., at a U.S. law school.

Papers should be between 15,000-25,000 words in length and there is a preference for papers related to the conference theme but we will accept papers on other topics as well. Please email submissions (and any questions) to no later than October 30, 2015. The winning submission will receive $300 and travel expenses to attend the Conference. The two runner-ups will receive $100 each.
