Call For Papers Vanderbilt Law School – Branstetter Litigation & Dispute Resolution Program

Vanderbilt Law School and the Cecil D. Branstetter Litigation & Dispute Resolution Program announce the 2012 New Voices in Civil Justice Scholarship Workshop to be held at Vanderbilt on April 20, 2012, and invite submissions for the workshop.

Submitted papers should address an aspect of civil justice. Subject areas may include, but are not limited to, civil procedure, complex litigation, evidence, federal courts, judicial decision-making, alternative dispute resolution, remedies, and conflict of laws.

The format for the workshop is designed to maximize collegial interaction and feedback. All participants will have read the selected papers. A senior faculty member will provide a brief overview and commentary on the paper, and then we are off and running with interactive discussion. Paper authors thus do not deliver prepared “presentations” as such. Rather, the overwhelming majority of each session is devoted to collective discussion of the paper involved.

Author qualifications: To be eligible to submit a paper, scholars must currently hold a permanent faculty position. In addition, scholars may not have held a position at assistant professor or higher (including visiting assistant professor) prior to 2004.

Format:  Papers may be sent in either Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat format. To maintain the anonymity of the process, remove any self-identifying information from the submission.

Deadline:  Submissions should be e-mailed to no later than January 13, 2012. Include your name, current position, and contact information in the e-mail accompanying the submission. If you’re work is chosen, you will be contacted by February 15.

FURTHER INFORMATION: The Branstetter Program will pay all reasonable travel expenses within the United States for invited participants. If you have any questions, email Professor Tracey George, Branstetter Program Director, at
