The University of Michigan Law School is pleased to invite submissions for its 2016 Young Scholars’ Conference to be held on April 8th – 9th, 2016, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Submissions must be received by December 31st, 2015. Selected papers will be announced by the end of January 2016. Final papers are due on March 5th, 2016 and will be circulated among the participants in advance.
The Michigan Law School 2016 Young Scholars’ Conference – under the theme “Law on the Move” – will explore the evolution of law, and of subjects under the law. Submissions engaging all disciplines of law and encompassing all legal systems are encouraged. Selection will be based on the quality of the proposal, as well as its capacity to engage with other proposals towards a collaborative dialogue.
Applications from current doctoral students, both in law and law-related disciplines, and from recent graduates of doctoral programs are welcomed. Applications by lecturers, fellows, or individuals in other academic capacities will be considered as well, provided they can be regarded as young scholars (for the conference purposes, an academic appointment of no more than 4 years). A 300-500 word abstract reflecting scholarly work that has not yet been published should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not include institutional affiliation on your abstract. Please submit your CV as a separate file. All files should be submitted as word documents.
The University of Michigan Law School may allocate limited funds to help cover accommodation and travel costs for selected participants. If you wish to be considered for financial assistance, please submit a request in writing along with your abstract submission, specifying your city of departure and an estimate of your travel costs.
