Seeking Submissions for Scholarly Papers Competition

Seeking Submissions for Scholarly Papers Competition

To encourage and recognize outstanding legal scholarship and to broaden participation by new faculty in the Annual Meeting, AALS is sponsoring a call for papers for the 35th Annual AALS Scholarly Papers Competition.

Eligibility: The competition is open to full-time law faculty who have been teaching for 5 years or less as of July 1, 2019. Note: time spent as a law fellow or a VAP counts toward the requirement of being a full-time teacher for five years or less.

Deadline: Eligible faculty are invited to submit a paper on a topic related to or concerning law by August 1, 2019.

Review: A committee of established scholars will review the submitted papers with the authors’ identities masked. The competition winner will be recognized at the 2020 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

For additional guidelines and complete submission instructions, visit the Annual Meeting website. Questions may be directed to AALS Scholarly Papers.
