5th Annual Midwest Law and Society Retreat

Date(s) of Conference:

Oct. 8-9, 2010


University of Wisconsin in Madison
Pyle Center
702 Langdon Street
Madison, WI 53706


The 2010 Retreat will offer opportunities for participants to share research ideas, discuss professional issues, receive feedback on works in progress, and develop future projects with regional colleagues. The program also will continue to place less emphasis on the traditional ‘paper presentation’ panel, and more emphasis on panels that deal with broad research issues, professional development, and the future of the field. The Institute encourages faculty to consider presenting on these topics, or just coming to the retreat to join in the discussion. Graduate students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to present their work to a supportive group of colleagues who can provide critical feedback, but they are also welcome to just attend as general participants.

To ensure that the Retreat remains informal and personal, attendance will be limited to 75 people. Advance registration with fee payment is required; early registration is
strongly encouraged.

Call for Papers:

Proposals should be submitted by June; the program will be substantially completed by July.
