Although papers can have been accepted for publication, please do not submit papers that have been published or posted to the internet by September 1, 2015. This is to preserve anonymity.

To further facilitate anonymous review, please submit papers in electronic form, with all identifying information removed (except for a cover sheet with your name, the year you began law teaching, and a confirmation that the paper has not yet been published or posted to the internet as of September 1, 2015) to the Executive Committee at CJsectionAALS@gmail.com. Please insert “CJS Junior Scholars Paper Competition” in the subject line of your e-mail. Papers will be selected after review by members of the CJS Executive Committee.
