Call for Papers
AALS Section on Law, Medicine & Health Care
Works-in-Progress for New Law School Teachers
AALS Annual Meeting, Washington, DC
Saturday, January 3, 2015
The AALS Section on Law, Medicine and Health Care is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for a special Works-in-Progress for New Law School Teachers Program. The Section will run the Program from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 3, at the AALS 2015 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
This program will bring together junior and senior health law scholars for a lively discussion of the junior scholar’s’ works-in-progress. Junior health law scholars will submit papers that they expect to submit in the spring 2015 law review submission cycle. After they briefly present their papers in a concurrent roundtable setting, senior scholars will provide oral comments and critiques. This new program presents an opportunity for the audience to hear cutting edge health law scholarship by recent members of the academy.
We will limit our selection to two or three papers.
Form & Length of Submission
Eligible faculty members are invited to submit either manuscripts or abstracts dealing with any aspect of health law or policy. Abstracts must be comprehensive enough to allow the committee to meaningfully evaluate the aims and likely content of the papers proposed. Papers may be accepted for publication but must be at a stage where input still would be useful. Papers must not be published prior to the Annual Meeting.
Deadline & Submission Method
To be considered, manuscripts or abstracts and a CV must be submitted electronically to both:
- Chair, Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care
Ani B. Satz, Emory University School of Law, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Chair-elect, Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care
Thaddeus Pope, Hamline University School of Law, email@example.com.
The deadline for submission is September 1, 2014.
Selection & Notification
Papers will be selected after careful review and discussion by the Executive Board of the AALS Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care.
The authors of the selected papers will be notified by September 22, 2014.
If a selected author has submitted only an abstract for review, the author must submit the corresponding manuscript by December 15, 2014.
The Call for Paper participants will be responsible for paying their annual meeting registration fee and travel expenses.
Full-time untenured faculty members of AALS member law schools are eligible to submit papers. The following are ineligible to submit: foreign, visiting (without a full-time position at an AALS member law school) and adjunct faculty members, graduate students who are not also enrolled in a qualifying J.D. program, fellows, non-law school faculty, and faculty at fee-paid non-member schools. Papers co-authored with a person ineligible to submit on their own may be submitted by the eligible co-author.
Please forward this Call for Papers to any eligible faculty who might be interested.
