Call For Papers: Gideon v. Wainwright & The Right to the Assistance of Counsel – Iowa City, IA 

The University of Iowa College of Law and the Iowa Law Review will hold a concerning Gideon v. Wainwright. “The precise date of the symposium has not yet been decided, but it is expected that it will be held between the beginning of October and the middle of November.”

Those interested in participating should submit a one-paragraph summary of the paper they will present and a two-page abstract that outlines the structure and content of the paper in more detail.

Deadline for proposals: December 15, 2012.

The symposium is inspired by a half-century of experience with the Warren Court’s groundbreaking decision to expand indigent defendants’ right to state-appointed legal assistance. Although the event has been prompted by Gideon’s ruling regarding appointed assistance, the planners anticipate and hope that the scholarly papers and presentations will address an wide array of subjects surrounding the scope, meaning, substance, or efficacy of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to retained or appointed legal assistance. Both legal and nonlegal (e.g., social science) scholarship related to these topics is welcome. Papers may be theoretical/analytical and/or doctrinal in character or may be based on empirical research about the effect of Gideon on the administration of criminal justice.

Rough manuscripts will be due two weeks before the date of the symposium. Final drafts of symposium papers, which will be published in the Iowa Law Review, will be due shortly after the symposium, by a deadline that will be established by editors of the Review. Papers should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words in length. Submissions may be mailed to: Professor James J. Tomkovicz University of Iowa College of Law Iowa City, Iowa 52242 or may be sent by email to: james-tomkovicz[@] Inquiries about the symposium should be addressed to Professor Tomkovicz at the same email address.

On June 13-14, 2013, the Institute for Research on Public administration, LUISS School of Government, and NYU Law will host the 9th Global Administrative Law Seminar. Abstracts should be sent by February 3, 2012.

1. Overview

The vast increase in global regulation has attracted significant attention from both scholars and practitioners. The global governance literature now comprises several different approaches, including a substantial body of work done from the perspective of ‘global administrative law’. In this and other work, it has long been recognised that institutions in the global administrative space do not act in isolation. Rather, global governance is accomplished through complex inter-relations between state-based government agencies, courts (national, regional and international), private standard-setting bodies, hybrid public-private bodies, transgovernmental networks, and formal intergovernmental organizations.

Call for Papers -- Annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop 

March 1-2, 2013, University of Illinois College of Law, Urbana-Champaign

Organized by:
Jacqueline Ross, University of Illinois College of Law
Kim Scheppele, Princeton Program in Law and Public Affairs
Maximo Langer, University of California at Los Angeles

We invite all interested comparative law scholars to consider submitting a paper to the next annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop, which will be held on Friday and Saturday, March 1 and 2, 2013, at the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign.

OVERVIEW: The conference will begin mid-day on March 1 and continue through the end of March 2. Participants should plan to arrive either Thursday evening (February 28) or Friday morning (March 1), and to leave on Sunday (March 3.) We bid a fond farewell to outgoing co-organizer Jim Whitman, from Yale University Law School, who has been called away by other duties. We thank him for his invaluable help with this workshop and will miss him. We are also delighted to welcome our new co-organizer, Maximo Langer, who is Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. The Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop will rotate between our home institutions and continues to be co-sponsored by the American Society of Comparative Law.

The annual workshop continues to be an important forum in which comparative law work in progress can be explored among colleagues in a serious and thorough manner that will be truly helpful to the respective authors. We will accept up to seven papers and select a mix of both junior and senior scholars. The participants will consist of the respective authors, commentators, and faculty members of the host institutions. The overall group will be kept small enough to sit around a large table and to allow serious discussion. Each paper will be discussed by two commentators and all authors are expected to have read and be prepared to discuss all of the papers selected for the workshop. The papers will not be presented at the workshop. They will be distributed well in advance and every participant must have read them before attending the meeting. Commentators will present and discuss the papers, after which the workshop participants will be invited to join in the discussion. The author will be given an opportunity to respond and ask questions of his or her own. There are no plans to publish the papers. Instead, it is up to the authors to seek publication if, and wherever, they wish.

The Workshop will be funded by the host school and by the American Society of Comparative Law. Authors of papers and commentators will be reimbursed for their travel expenses and accommodation up to $600, by either the University of Illinois College of Law or by the American Society of Comparative Law, in accordance with the ASCL reimbursement police (as posted on its webpage.) The ASCL asks that authors inquire into funding opportunities at their home institutions before applying for reimbursement by the ASCL.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Interested authors should submit papers to Jacqueline Ross, by January 5, 2013. We will inform authors of our decision by the end of January.

"Work in progress" means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication.) It includes law review articles, book chapters or outlines, substantial book reviews, and other appropriate genres.

Our objective is not only to provide an opportunity for the discussion of scholarly work but also to create the opportunity for comparative lawyers to get together for two days devoted to nothing but talking shop, both in the sessions and outside. We hope that this will create synergy that fosters more dialogue, cooperation, and an increased sense of coherence for the discipline.

From SSRN.
