Call for Papers

Yale Law School will host the 5th Doctoral Scholarship Conference, which will be held on December 4-5, 2015. The conference aims to provide doctoral students and recent graduates with a forum to present, share and debate their work. It seeks to promote high-quality research and to facilitate a dialogue 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 (2014-2015). We welcome submissions engaging any area of law. Papers will be selected based on quality and their capacity to provoke fruitful debate with other submissions.

Submissions by August 31:

Abstracts of 300-500 words (with your institutional affiliations and several relevant keywords) should be submitted below by August 31st, 2015. Selected applicants will be informed of acceptance in late September, and presenters will be asked to submit their papers of up to 10,000 words in length (12,000 including footnotes) by October 31, 2015.
