Call for Papers: Law and Technolgy

Call for Papers:

The World Jurist Association is seeking articles of publishable quality in the field of law and technology for inclusion in a publication entitled Law/Technology. The journal has a readership in over 200 countries, including many of the major law libraries around the world. We publish 4 issues a year and are currently searching for articles for the 2010 publications.

We have a current issue which we need to fill immediately and therefore would consider articles that have been previously published but which are available for republication and would still be of interest to an international audience.

Contact Information:

For more information, contact Rachael Gubernick, intern, c/o Sona N. Pancholy, Executive Director, spancholy@worldjurist.org, (202) 466-5428.

Call for Papers: Law and the Deaf / Hard-of-Hearing Communities

Call for Papers:

Josh Reece, Editor-in-Chief of the Valparaiso Law Review, writes to encourage submissions to his journal’s forthcoming issue that will be dedicated to Disability Law topics.  The primary focus of the issue will be on how the law relates to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing communities.  Here’s a summary:

Our goal for putting together this issue is twofold.  First, research into current legal scholarship reflected a relatively minimal amount of writing dedicated to these communities.

There is no reason for this as the legal issues that affect the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community are intriguing and deserving of both practical and theoretical reflection.  Second, we would like this issue to serve as a sort of “sourcebook” for those who practice, write, and research in this area of the law.

Attached is a list of Suggested Topics that our Executive Board has worked hard to compile.  If you are interested in contributing to this issue, please browse through the list, select a topic (or even your own that you feel may be timely), and then submit an abstract of your contribution.  I would ask that all abstracts are submitted to me no later than Wednesday, June 30th.  Invitations to write will be sent out within the next week.

I realize that this is a rather short time to contemplate contributing an article to our Law Review.  However, the sooner we are able to reply with invitations, the longer you would have to research and write an article.  If you have a strong interest but cannot complete an abstract by the above date, please contact us and we will do our best to work with you.

The publication goal for this proposed Issue is currently March 2011.  In order to meet this date, all articles would have to be completed and sent in by October 8th.  While these dates have some flexibility, they are necessary to maintain the current publication schedule.

2011 Workshop on Women Rethinking Equality

Date(s) of Conference:

June 2011

Location:

Washington, D.C.

Description:

The Workshop will be held in June, 2011 in Washington, DC. It will appeal to a full range of teachers and scholars in all subject areas by creating opportunities for a rich dialogue about the meaning, contours, implications, and status of equality for women, with particular attention to women and gender in the setting of legal education. Conference sessions will focus on substantive law and scholarship, teaching concerns, and professional development issues. We welcome participation by all AALS members-and particularly all women-regardless of whether their scholarship focuses on gender.

Call for Papers:

Women write in all fields of law, yet women at all stages of their careers who write in male-dominated fields may have fewer opportunities to present and receive feedback on their work. The same is true of junior women scholars across all academic specialties. Additionally, female and male scholars in gender and feminist jurisprudence often find their work marginalized within traditional academic disciplines and institutions. This call for papers invites scholars from these categories to present their works-in-progress and to receive comments in small group sessions with assigned commentators. Because the goal is to give these scholars more exposure, no subject matter preferences govern this call. Full drafts or nearly completed drafts are encouraged, although these drafts may be rough.

Interested faculty should submit a précis of the paper she or he would like to present, along with her or his résumé. The précis should be no more than 2500 words. Please e-mail these materials to 11wwcfp@aals.org by July 31, 2010. We will notify selected authors by October 1, 2010.

Contact Information:

Please direct questions to Professor Kathryn Abrams, University of California, Berkeley Law at krabrams@law.berkeley.edu; Professor Serena Mayeri, University of Pennsylvania Law School at smayeri@law.upenn.edu; Professor Elizabeth Nowicki, Tulane University Law School at enowicki@tulane.edu; Professor Angela Onwuachi-Willig, University of Iowa College of Law at angela-onwuachi@uiowa.edu; Professor Lisa R.
