Call for Proposals for the Sixth Annual Equality Law Scholars’ Forum, November 15-16, 2024 – UC Davis Law School

Building on the success of the Equality Law Scholars’ Forum held at UC Berkeley Law in 2017, UC Davis Law in 2018, Boston University Law in 2021, Loyola Law Los Angeles in 2022, and Boston University Law in 2023, and in the spirit of academic engagement and mentoring in the area of Equality Law, we (Tristin Green, Loyola Law Los Angeles; Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Boston University Law; and Leticia Saucedo, UC Davis Law) announce the Sixth Annual Equality Law Scholars’ Forum to be held in Fall 2024.

This Scholars’ Forum seeks to provide junior scholars with commentary and critique and to provide scholars at all career stages the opportunity to engage with new scholarly currents and ideas. We hope to bring together scholars with varied perspectives (e.g., critical race theory, class critical theory, queer theory, feminist legal theory, law and economics, law and society) across fields (e.g., criminal system, education, employment, family, health, immigration, property, tax) and with work relevant to many diverse identities (e.g., age, class, disability, national origin, race, sex, sexuality) to build bridges and to generate new ideas in the area of Equality Law.

We will select five or six relatively junior scholars (untenured, newly tenured, or prospective professors) in the U.S. to present papers from proposals submitted in response to this Call for Proposals. In so doing, we will select papers that cover a broad range of topics within the area of Equality Law. Leading senior scholars will provide commentary on each of the featured papers in an intimate and collegial setting. The Forum will take place all day Friday through lunch on Saturday. Participants are expected to attend the full Forum. The Equality Law Scholars’ Forum will pay transportation and accommodation expenses for participants and will host a dinner on Friday evening.

This year’s Forum will be held on November 15-16, 2024, at UC Davis Law School.

Junior scholars are invited to submit abstracts of proposed papers, 3-5 pages in length, by June 1, 2024.

Full drafts of papers must be available for circulation to participants by November 1, 2024.

Note: We urge submission of proposals for drafts that will still be substantially in progress in November 2024 over drafts that will be in late-stage law review edits at that time.

Proposals should be submitted to:
