The call for papers has come out for this years US Law and Society Association Annual Meeting, to be held between June 2nd and June 5th, 2016 at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana. Be aware that this year the abstract submission format has changed, with the LSA now requiring a 1,000 word paper summary instead of the short abstract required in previous years. Each year hundreds of law and society scholars descend on the meeting to share their latest thoughts, including at dozens of panels on law, arts, and culture. Incidentally, this will be the last LSA meeting held in the US for quite some time, as in 2017 and 2018 the conference is set to take place in Mexico City and Toronto respectively. I myself have gone both of the last two years, and can say that this is one of the premiere venues for law and society thought in North America, and definitely worth the trip, especially to connect with other scholars from all over the world. The deadline for submissions is October 15th, 2015, with this year’s topic described as “At the Delta: Belonging, Place and Visions of Law and Social Change”. The full call for papers can be found here.
