Call for Papers: Law, Society and the Social Good

Call for Papers:

The Mid-Atlantic Law and Society Association will host its Inaugural Conference at the Earle Mack School of Law, Drexel University, in Philadelphia, PA, on October 19-20, 2012.  Proposals for Individual Papers and Fully-Formed Sessions are welcome.

Our theme is purposely broad and encompassing. But we are especially interested in considering the manner in which knowledge obtained from socio-legal research can be used to understand and engage with the social good. Other law and society topics are welcome.

We seek papers, panels, and roundtables aimed at stimulating conversations that will build bridges across the range of law and society topics. We anticipate organizing different kinds of presentations, including both traditional panels for completed papers and workshops for projects and ideas still in development; we welcome proposals that let participants share and respond to intellectual projects in thoughtful and enjoyable ways. We are particularly interested in proposals that cross national, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries. 

The deadline for submission of paper proposals and other forms of participation is August 1, 2012.

We look forward to receiving your submissions via email to:
