Two of my colleagues, Professors Matthew I. Hall and Kent Barnett, have issued a call for papers for the 7th Annual Junior Faculty Federal Courts Workshop to be held October 10 and 11, 2014, here at the University of Georgia School of Law.
Invited to submit an abstract of a paper to be discussed at the workshop are all “untenured and recently tenured academics who teach and write in federal courts, civil rights litigation, civil procedure, and other associated topics,” including persons “who do not currently hold a faculty appointment but expect to do so beginning in fall 2014.” The deadline for e-mailing an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org is June 20, 2014.
Junior scholars whose work-in-progress papers are accepted (following evaluation by a committee of past participants) will be partnered with senior scholars. The latter will moderate panels and comment and lead group discussions on the papers. Confirmed senior scholars include Professors: Janet Cooper Alexander, Stanford Law; Anthony J. Bellia, Notre Dame Law; Heather Elliott, Alabama Law; Evan Lee, California-Hastings Law; Gillian Metzger, Columbia Law; James E. Pfander, Northwestern Law; Amanda Tyler, California-Berkeley; and Stephen I. Vladeck, American University Law.
Also welcomed to attend the free workshop are scholars who wish to read and comment on, but not themselves present, papers.
