Call for Papers – Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop at Stanford University

Every year a collaborative effort between the Columbia Law School, the University of Southern California Center for Law, History & Culture, UCLA School of Law, Georgetown University Law School, Stanford Law School, and the University of Pennsylvania, results in the annual Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop. This upcoming year the workshop will be held at Stanford Law School in Palo Alto, California between June 4th and 5th, 2018. Participation in the workshop is determined by competition, and is “open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities.” Those accepted will have their papers appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network.

According to the call for papers:

Papers must be works-in-progress that do not exceed 15,000 words in length (including footnotes/endnotes); most papers selected for inclusion in recent years have been at least 10,000 words long. An abstract of no more than 200 words must also be included with the paper submission. A dissertation chapter may be submitted, but we strongly suggest that it be edited so that it stands alone as a piece of work with its own integrity. A paper that has been submitted for publication is eligible for selection so long as it will not be in galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop; it is important that authors still be in a position at the time of the Workshop to consider comments they receive there and incorporate them as they think appropriate in their revisions. 

The deadline for submissions is January 5, 2018 – to apply, send your papers via email to , including your name, institutional affiliation, and contact information in the body of the email. If accepted, you will receive reimbursement for your domestic travel (or international travel up to $1000) and hotel accommodation for your attendance.
