Internet Law WIP at Santa Clara
We invite your participation in the Fifth Annual Internet Law Work-in-Progress conference at Santa Clara University School of Law on March 7, 2015. The conference series is co-sponsored by the High Tech Law Institute at Santa Clara University School of Law and the Institute for Information Law and Policy at the New York Law School.
The work-in-progress event was created for Internet law scholars to receive feedback about their papers and projects from their academic peers. We take a broad view of the topics that fit under the Internet Law umbrella. The conference has three categories of participation:
* papers-in-progress. We might allocate additional presentation time to presentations that meet the following specifications: (1) a feedback-ready paper draft is submitted no later than February 20, 2015 at noon–no extensions!; and (2) as of March 7, 2015, the paper draft has not been circulated for publication or posted to SSRN or a similar site.
* projects-in-progress. This covers presentations on any other academic project, ranging from nearly finished papers to half-baked ideas.
* discussant. Space permitting, we welcome other scholars to join the conversation as active audience participants.
How to Participate
If you would like to participate, email Eric Goldman (email@example.com) the following information by the initial deadline of November 10, 2014 at noon:

We expect to notify accepted participants by November 17, 2014. We will evaluate submissions after the initial deadline on a space-available basis.
