Call for Papers Announcement
AALS Section on Women in Legal Education
â€œNew Voices in Gender Studies”
2011 AALS Annual Meeting
January 4-8, 2011
San Francisco, California
The AALS Section on Women in Legal Education will hold a program during the AALS 2011 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, with paper presentations by the winners of the “New Voices in Gender Studies” paper competition.
Submissions should be of scholarship relating to (1) women in legal education, (2) any aspect of women’s relationship to the law, or (3) gender, sexuality and the law. There is a maximum 30,000 word limit (inclusive of footnotes) for the submission. Since this is a paper presentation opportunity, and not one for publication, submitted papers can be committed for publication prior to their submission, but cannot be actually in print prior to their submission. Each professor may submit only one paper for consideration.
Papers will be reviewed anonymously. The manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter with the author’s name and contact information. The manuscript itself, including title page and footnotes, must not contain any references that identify the author or the author’s school. The submitting author is responsible for taking any steps necessary to redact self-identifying text or footnotes.
To be considered, papers must be submitted electronically to Professor Linda Jellum, Mercer University School of Law, firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is Monday, August 16, 2010. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by October 1, 2010. Call for Paper participants will be responsible for paying their annual meeting registration fee and travel expenses.
Full-time faculty members of AALS member and fee-paid law schools, who have been teaching for seven or fewer years as of August 16, 2010, are eligible to submit papers.
Foreign, visiting (and not full-time on a different faculty) and adjunct faculty members, graduate students, and fellows are not eligible to submit.
Papers will be selected after review by members of the AALS Section on Women in Legal Education’s Executive Committee and Advisory Board, including Professor Bridget Crawford, Professor Nancy Levit, Professor Kathryn Stanchi, and Professor Ettie Ward.
