Call for Papers – Scholarly Papers Competition

AALS Scholarly Papers Competition for Junior Faculty

To encourage and recognize outstanding legal scholarship and to broaden participation by junior faculty in the Annual Meeting program, AALS is sponsoring a call for papers for the 33rd Annual AALS Scholarly Papers Competition. The competition is open to law faculty, including VAPs (Visiting Assistant Professors), who have been teaching for 5 years or less as of July 1, 2018. Time spent as a VAP counts toward the requirement of being a full-time educator for five years or less. Eligible faculty are invited to submit a paper on a topic related to or concerning law by August 2, 2018.

A committee of established scholars will review the submitted papers with the authors’ identities concealed. Papers that make a substantial contribution to legal literature will be selected for presentation at the 2019 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans. For additional guidelines and complete submission instructions, visit the 2019 Scholarly Papers page. Questions may be directed to scholarlypapers@aals.org.
