Call for Papers: 18th Junior Faculty Forum

Stanford, Yale, and Harvard Law Schools host their 18th Junior Faculty Forum from June 6–7, 2017 at Stanford.

The Forum’s objective is to encourage the work of scholars recently appointed to a tenure-track position 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. Twelve to twenty scholars (with one to seven years in teaching) will be chosen on a blind basis from among those submitting papers to present.

Electronic submissions should be sent to Stephanie Basso at jff@law.stanford.edu with the subject line “Junior Faculty Forum” by  February 17, 2017.

Call for Papers: Evidence Based Law and Practice

The University of Newcastle Australia Law School presents a symposium, Evidence Based Law and Practice,  May 22, 2017.

Being evidence-based means that law-and policy-making, and professional practices, are grounded in rigorous evidence of what is effective in achieving desired outcomes. The evidence-based movement in law is concerned with improving research and evaluation in all legal sectors, including legal education, legal practice, law-making and judging.

Papers are sought that critically explore the concept of evidence-based law and practice: what does it mean; how do we do it; why should we do it?

Send abstracts to Briony Johnston at briony.johnston@newcastle.edu.au by February 17, 2017.
