Call for Submissions: Yale/Stanford/Harvard Law Schools announce the 14th session of the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum

Yale/Stanford/Harvard Law Schools announce the 14th session of the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum to be held at Yale Law School on June 14-15, 2013 and seek submissions for its meeting.

The Forum’s objective is to encourage the work of young scholars by providing experience in the pursuit of scholarship and the nature of the scholarly exchange. Meetings are held each spring, rotating at Yale, Stanford, and Harvard. Ten to twelve scholars (with one to seven years in teaching) will be chosen on a blind basis from among those submitting papers to present. One or more senior scholars, not necessarily from Yale, Stanford, or Harvard, will comment on each paper. The audience will include the invited young scholars, faculty from the host institutions, and invited guests. The goal is discourse on both the merits of particular papers and on appropriate methodologies for doing work in that genre. We hope that comment and discussion will communicate what counts as good work among successful senior scholars and will also challenge and improve the standards that now obtain. The Forum also hopes to increase the sense of community among American legal scholars generally, particularly among new and veteran professors.

TOPICS: Each year the Forum invites submissions on selected topics in public and private law, legal philosophy, and gender and race theory, alternating loosely between public law and humanities subjects in one year, and private and dispute resolution law in the next. For the upcoming 2013 meeting, the topics will cover these areas of the law:

- Corporate and Securities Law
– Antitrust
– Bankruptcy
– Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution
– Property
– Intellectual Property
– Taxation
– Torts
– Law and Policy Implementation
– International Law

Electronic submissions should be sent to The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 15, 2013. Please note on the cover letter which topic your paper falls under.
FURTHER INFORMATION: Inquiries concerning the Forum should be sent to Ian Ayres at Yale Law School (, Joseph Bankman at Stanford Law School ( or Adriaan Lani at Harvard law School (
