Request For Submissions Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum
June 27-28, 2014, Stanford Law School
Harvard/Stanford/Yale Law Schools announce the 15th session of the Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum to be held at Stanford Law School on June 27-28, 2014. We are seeking submissions for this meeting.
The Forum's objective is to encourage the work of young scholars by providing experience in the pursuit of scholarship and the nature of the scholarly exchange. Meetings are held each spring, rotating among Harvard, Stanford, and Yale. Ten to twelve scholars (with one to seven years in teaching) will be chosen on a blind basis from among those submitting papers. One or more senior scholars, not necessarily from Stanford, Harvard or Yale, will comment on each paper. The audience will include the invited young scholars, faculty from the host institutions, and invited guests. The goal is discourse on both the merits of particular papers and on appropriate methodologies for doing work in that genre. We hope that comment and discussion will communicate what counts as good work among successful senior scholars and will also challenge and improve the standards that now obtain. The Forum also hopes to increase the sense of community among American legal scholars generally, particularly among new and veteran professors.
TOPICS: Each year the Forum invites submissions on selected topics in public and private law, legal philosophy, and gender and race theory, alternating loosely between public law and humanities subjects in one year, and private and dispute resolution law in the next. For the upcoming 2014 meeting, the topics will cover these areas of public law:
- Administrative Law
- Constitutional Law - theoretical foundations
- Constitutional Law - historical foundations
- Criminal Law
- Environmental Law
- Family Law
- Jurisprudence and Philosophy
- Labor Law and Social Welfare Policy
- Law and Humanities - Law and Literature
- Critical Legal Studies and Gender Studies
- Public International Law
A jury of accomplished scholars, again not necessarily from Harvard, Stanford, or Yale, with expertise in the particular topic, will choose the papers to be presented. There is no publication commitment, nor is published work eligible. Stanford will reimburse presenters' and commentators' travel expenses for this year's Forum.
QUALIFICATIONS: There is no limit on the number of submissions by any individual author. To be eligible, an author must be teaching at a U.S. law school in a tenured or tenure-track position and must not have been teaching at either of those ranks for more than 7 years total. We accept co-authored submissions, but each of the coauthors must be individually eligible to participate in the Junior Faculty Forum.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Paper submissions for this Forum should be mailed to:
Stanford Law School
559 Nathan Abbott Way
Stanford, CA 94305-8610
Electronic submissions should be sent to email@example.com
. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2014. Please note on the cover letter under which topic your paper falls.
FURTHER INFORMATION: Inquiries concerning the Forum should be sent to Joseph Bankman at Stanford Law School, (firstname.lastname@example.org), Adriaan Lani at Harvard Law School (email@example.com), or Ian Ayres at Yale Law School (firstname.lastname@example.org).

CALL FOR PAPERS Transnational Standards in the Domestic Legal Order: Authority and Legitimacy
The research project Architecture of Postnational Rulemaking at the University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Law, is organizing a workshop on 24 October 2014 and invites paper proposals from scholars and practitioners of law and related disciplines.
The Workshop Theme
The workshop explores the evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order from the perspectives of authority and legitimacy.
The decline of sovereign states in global governance was accompanied by the expansion of transnational standard-setting bodies, which are not part of treaty-based institutions. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops industrial standards; the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) provides capital requirements; the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) formulates accounting standards; the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) establishes principles and criteria for forest products; and the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) recommends radiological protection standards. The standard-setting in these bodies is led not only by governmental regulators, but also by industry representatives and scientific experts.
These bodies’ transnational standards permeate national standards, domestic statutes, administrative instruments, and judicial decisions. The interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order have significantly evolved, and reduced regulatory fragmentation across states without the rigidity of concluding any formal international treaties. The evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order give rise to the fundamental questions about authority and legitimacy. In this workshop, authority broadly concerns an entity’s claims and others’ deference to them. Legitimacy concerns a broad normative perspective to evaluate the authority of transnational standard-setting bodies and their standards.
Authority appears to be a multi-faceted notion when it is cast against transnational standards. On the one hand, the authority of standard-setting bodies seems to be strongly supported by the expertise of transnational bodies, the industry and scientific “consensus” they formulate at the transnational level, and pressure for regulatory harmonization across states. On the other hand, the authority of standard-setting bodies and their standards appears to be contextual, and constituted by domestic politics and legal contexts.
The authority of transnational standards further gives rise to a multi-faceted question of legitimacy. At the transnational level, standard-setting processes may not allow any formal governmental representation, as contrasted with the conclusion of treaties and the decision-making processes in international organizations. At the domestic level, transnational standards are not subject to parliamentary approval required for the conclusion of formal treaties. The executive organs may defer to transnational standards and avoid domestic deliberation. The technicality of industry or scientific standards makes it difficult for the wider public to review the governmental reliance on transnational standards. Overall, there is a strong indication that transnational standards may escape domestic scrutiny at multiple levels.
Extensive studies have already been produced on the role of transnational standard-setting bodies. Much less recognized are the interactions of transnational standards with the domestic legal order. Given that the regulatory significance of transnational standards often depends on domestic acceptance, it is important to examine the queries of how the authority of transnational standards is constituted at the domestic level, and whether the authority is legitimate.
Against this background, the workshop will address the evolving interactions between transnational standards and the domestic legal order, particularly from the following three angles:
1. Transnational standards in domestic legal practices
Transnational standard-setting bodies actively promote, if not oblige, the domestic permeation of their standards in order to achieve regulatory convergence across states. National legislatures, ministries, judges, industries, and the general public invoke transnational standards in statutes, administrative instruments, judicial decisions, and wider legal practices. What argumentative bases do relevant domestic actors invoke in adopting transnational standards in domestic legal practices? Which legal instruments are used for the domestic adoption of transnational standards? Who has invited the standards into the domestic legal order?
2. Authority of transnational standards
The concept of authority has been traditionally associated with a sovereign state and its binding domestic laws and regulations. The concept has also been employed in relation to international organizations, such as the UN, the World Bank, and the WHO, which are established by sovereign states. Is authority a useful notion to understand the regulatory relevance of transnational standards? How can we theoretically understand the authority of transnational standards at the domestic level? What constitutes authority? How is the expertise of transnational standard-setting bodies relevant to their authority? How does the authority of transnational standards vary according to the domestic legal order in which the standards are applied? What conditions lead to the varied domestic amenability to transnational standards?
3. Legitimacy of transnational standards
Despite the fact that transnational standards have an impact on domestic legal practices, transnational standard-setting processes and domestic legal processes appear to invite only restricted input from domestic constituencies. Is the domestic permeation of transnational standards normatively problematic, and if so, in what sense? On what basis have transnational standards, and standard-setting bodies, been challenged at the domestic level? Could the expansion of transnational standards undermine domestic democracy? What role do domestic courts play in reviewing and contesting the governmental use of transnational standards? Does national contestation have any feedback on the development of transnational standards? Papers are invited to explore these angles in a variety of legal disciplines. These three angles are interrelated, and multiple angles can be addressed within one paper.
Submission of Proposals and the Timeline
Paper proposals should include a description of maximum 500 words and the applicant’s curriculum vitae. Submissions should cover work that has not been previously published.
At the workshop, the invited authors should present a paper of 7,000-8,000 words, excluding references. It is the intention of the organisers to publish the papers in a special journal edition.
Paper proposals should be sent by email to: Ms. Angela Moisl at email@example.com
. The deadline is 18 May 2014.
Selected participants will be informed by 18 June 2014. Each participant must submit a paper by 3 October 2014 for distribution to the other participants. The workshop takes place on 24 October 2014 at the University of Amsterdam.
The sponsoring organizations will cover the speakers’ traveling (economy class) and accommodation expenses (2 nights).

Call For Papers: Critical Legal Conference 2014 at the University of Sussex
CRITICAL LEGAL CONFERENCE 2014
4-6 September 2014
UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX, BRIGHTON, UK
Call for Papers
By ‘Power, Capital, Chaos’, we refer to a context of ongoing global economic crisis, the neo-liberal destruction of social democracy and the ever-widening entrenchment of inequalities of wealth, power and technology within and between a global ‘North’ and global ‘South’. A contemporary political situation marked by austerity and privatisation, by security and responsibility, by racist political reaction, class-war and gender-domination.
Yet, this is also a situation marked by manifold acts of protest, struggle, occupation, riot and revolution. All of which demand the reimaging of social, political, juridical and material life. These are modes of resistance that call-out disparate and conflicting visions of the ‘public good’, ‘human dignity’ and ‘justice’. Equally these involve legal and political claims to knowledge which exist within and contend with a late-modern context of endless critique, scepticism and disagreement. As such, the contemporary theorisation of ‘power’ and ‘capital’ involves critical thought’s confrontation with a certain ‘chaos’ of reason and unreason.
Conference participants are asked to consider how we might attempt to understand, explain and respond to a chaotic contemporary political situation? You are invited to do so on the lovely campus of the University of Sussex set in the chalky South Downs of South-East England. In this respect, one context of the CLC 2014 is the city of Brighton and Hove, which carries on a long tradition of pleasure and distraction. In another, the context is the University of Sussex which holds onto both a radical intellectual tradition and a tradition of radical student protest.
We ask you to make your own interpretation of the theme ‘Power, Capital, Chaos’, and invite scholars from a range of disciplines to propose papers and streams. Traditionally the Critical Legal Conference is a friendly and interdisciplinary conference bringing together scholars from a wide body of disciplines.
Proposals should consist of a short abstract (max. 250 words).
Deadline for Stream Proposals: 31 March, 2014
Deadline for Paper Proposals: 30 June, 2014

ASU Legal Scholars Conference
On March 14-15, 2014, the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law will host the fifth annual ASU Legal Scholars Conference. The purpose of the conference is to gather together “juniorish” academics (generally, those who have been in the academy for fewer than 10 years) to receive constructive feedback on their scholarship, to network, and to enjoy Arizona’s March weather!
We charge no registration fees and provide for free: (1) dinner and drinks the night before (Friday March 14th); (2) a spring training game (Cubs vs. Dodgers) or outing to the PHX Zoo for interested attendees; and (3) breakfast and lunch the day of the conference (Saturday March 15th). Attendees, however, must cover all travel and hotel costs (There is a link to hotel information at the top of this page). Rates are subject to change so book as soon as possible.
To register for the conference, click on the registration link at the top of the page. As noted, each registrant will be asked to submit something for comment and feedback. The paper can be a draft of a work in progress, a recently accepted piece, or even just a half-baked idea; the only limitation is that it should not be a piece that is already published (because the whole point of the conference is to get feedback to improve the piece). Based on the subject of the paper, each conference attendee will be assigned to a group of other attendees with similar scholarly interests. The members of each group will read the papers of the other members of the group, and then provide feedback on those papers. In the past five years, we have had more than 200 law professors from around the country attend and exchange ideas—join this ever-growing group and come to the conference on March 14 & 15th!

Call for Papers: Rethinking the Boundaries of Public Law and Public Space
International Society of Public Law (ICON·S)
2014 Inaugural Conference
Florence, June 26-28, 2014
We invite you to join the newly established International Society of Public Law (ICON·S) and to propose panels and papers for our Inaugural Conference on “Rethinking the Boundaries of Public Law and Public Space” .
The Conference, to be held in Florence, Italy, on June 26-28, 2014, will be jointly organized by the European University Institute and the New York University School of Law.
The Conference program will include a keynote address by Jeremy Waldron, as well as three plenary sessions (a provisional program can be found here). The heart of the Conference, however, will be the two half-days devoted to the panels selected through this Call.
We welcome panel suggestions for the Conference as well as submissions of individual papers. Panel suggestions should include at least three papers by scholars who have agreed in advance to participate. Panel suggestions should also name one or two discussants. Concurrent panel sessions will take place over two half-days during the Conference. Each panel session will last 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The topics of Plenary Sessions are not meant to limit proposals to those specific issues. Panels and papers may focus on any theoretical and practical topic related to public law, administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, or international law in all their possible domestic, transnational, supranational, international and global variants.
We particularly welcome panels that offer a genuine “trans-boundary” perspective: transcending the boundaries between different jurisdictions and legal traditions or between disciplines and areas of public law. We invite potential participants to refer to the ICON·S Mission Statement when choosing a topic. Panels and papers challenging established theoretical schemes or adopting multi-disciplinary approaches are strongly encouraged.
ICON·S is by no means restricted to public lawyers! We welcome proposals from various areas of law (including civil, commercial, tax, and labor law), as well as from scholars from the humanities and the social sciences with an interest in the study of public law and public space.
Submissions from both senior and junior scholars (including advanced Ph.D. students) as well as practitioners are welcome. All submissions must be made through our online forms (for panels; for individual papers), by March 31, 2014. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by April 30, 2014.
All participants will be responsible for their travel and accommodation expenses.

Call for Papers: Procedural Fairness in International Courts and Tribunals
Procedural Fairness in International Courts and Tribunals
University of Surrey, Guildford
19-20 September 2014
The Surrey International Law Centre of the School of Law of the University of Surrey with the support of the Institute of Advanced Studies, the McCoubrey Centre of the University of Hull and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (‘BIICL’) will host a two-day workshop on the identification of core standards of procedural fairness before international courts and tribunals. A topical and timely subject for study, the question of procedural fairness entails the identification of fundamental principles inherent to the judicial and arbitral processes. Whilst the manifestation of such core standards of fairness will necessarily diverge according to the particular forum, the workshop aims to identify their essence with reference to the procedural issues arising in practice.
The aim of this workshop is to bring academics and practitioners together to initiate ground-breaking research into this novel topic. The workshop employs a comparative approach whereby participants will analyse the procedures and practices of various international courts and tribunals. It aims to identify patterns of commonality and divergence in the core standards of procedural fairness of international courts and to develop a holistic understanding of the nature of procedural fairness and the challenges to its realisation in the international judicial system.
Proposals are invited on topics relating to the aforementioned themes in addition to specific aspects of international judicial procedure. In addition, the workshop welcomes contributions on the theoretical question of the implications that fairness in international procedural law may have for general international law, such as its systemic traits, the ‘humanisation’ of international procedure and the responsibility of international courts and tribunals for failure to meet standards of fairness.
This call is directed to academics at all career stages who wish to bring fresh perspectives to the workshop with established scholars and practitioners. Senior scholars and practitioners who have committed to participate, subject to scheduling, include: Judge Paul Mahoney (European Court of Human Rights), Professor Philippe Sands QC (University College London and Matrix Chambers), Judge Sir Kenneth Keith (International Court of Justice), Judge Awn al-Khasawneh (former Judge, International Court of Justice), Dr Andraz Zidar (Dorset Senior Research Fellow, BIICL), Professor Sir David Edward QC (University of Edinburgh and Blackstone Chambers), Mr N. Jansen Calamita (University of Birmingham and Senior Research Fellow, BIICL), Ms Jill Barrett (Arthur Watts Senior Research Fellow, BIICL), Judge Joanna Korner QC (former prosecutor, International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia), Dr John Sorabji (University College London), and Mr Phillip Weiner (former prosecutor, International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia).
Submissions: Interested parties should submit an abstract of maximum 500 words by the 1st of April 2014 here. The organising committee comprises: Dr Arman Sarvarian (University of Surrey), Professor Sir Michael Aaronson CBE (University of Surrey), Professor Makane Mbengue (University of Geneva), Mr Rudy Baker (University of Surrey), Dr Sabine Braun (University of Surrey), Dr Filippo Fontanelli (University of Surrey), and Dr Vassilis Tzevelekos (University of Hull). Speakers will be informed of acceptance by the 1st of May, 2014 and will be expected to submit a paper by the 1st of August, 2014. Participants will be expected to pay a fee and to cover their travel and accommodation, details of which will be announced in due course. Link
