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 39th Annual AALS Scholarly Papers Competition. The competition is open to full-time law faculty, who have been teaching for 5 years or less as of August 31, 2023. Time spent as a law fellow or 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 3, 2023, 5 pm, Eastern.
A committee of established scholars will review the submitted papers with the authors’ identities concealed. The competition winner(s) will be recognized at the 2024 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
