Call for Papers:
The editors of the Pace Law Review invite proposals from scholars, researchers, practitioners, and professionals for contributions to an issue slated for publication during the Fall of 2011. This issue focuses on the changing landscape of Labor and Employment in the modern market. We hope to publish articles that examine the changing legal employment landscape including commentary on the viability of the traditional law firm model and the billable hour, the effect of the internet on multijurisdictional practice, and how attorneys should expect the practice of law to continue transforming in the next ten to fifteen years. In addition, we are also soliciting articles discussing the impact of current events on labor law. Current events may include the bills passed in Wisconsin and Ohio limiting collective bargaining rights of unions, the effect of government funding and politics on labor negotiations, and the renegotiation of the collective bargaining agreements for each of the four major sports leagues in the United States within the next year. If you have an article idea that fits within the employment or labor realm more broadly than the examples provided above, we encourage you to still submit your proposal for consideration as we are interested in scholarly discourse and are not strictly confined to the above mentioned events.
Please submit proposals of no more than 500 words by attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1, 2011. If you already have a completed article or an article in progress, you may submit the piece with an abstract of no more than 500 words describing the work. We welcome proposals for articles, essays, and book reviews. All proposals should include the author’s name, title, institutional affiliation, contact information, and should concern issues related to the subject matter described above. Book review proposals should also include (a) the title and publication date of the book proposed for review; (b) a description of the importance of the book to the general topic; and (c) any other information relevant to the book or proposed review (e.g. the reviewer’s expertise or any relationship with the author). Authors are also welcome, but not required, to submit a CV. We expect to make publication offers by June 17, 2011. Completed manuscripts of scholarly articles and book reviews will be due August 19, 2011.
