CONFERENCE: Law and Responsibility

Yale Law School hosts the 4th Doctoral Scholarship Conference on Law and Responsibility, which will be held on November 14-15, 2014.

The conference aims to provide doctoral students and recent graduates with a forum to present, share and discuss their work beyond conventional academic boundaries. It seeks to promote quality research and to facilitate discussion across diverse subject areas and methodological approaches, with a view towards fostering a community of aspiring legal scholars.

The conference is open to current doctoral candidates, in law or law-related disciplines, and those who graduated during the previous academic year (2013-2014). Submissions engaging any area of law are welcomed.

Papers will be selected based on quality and their capacity to provoke fruitful debate with other submissions. Selection will be informed - but not strictly bound - by fidelity to the theme.

Abstracts of 300-500 words (with your institutional affiliations) should be submitted to yls.doctoralconference@gmail.com by August 1st, 2014.

Selected applicants will be informed of acceptance in late August, and presenters will be asked to submit their papers of up to 10,000 words in length by October 10, 2014.
