Call for Papers

Papers selected for presentation at the conference are intended for inclusion in a special issue of Legal Theory, after post-conference revisions. Please note that acceptance into the conference is not an assurance of ultimate publication. But review will be expedited with a view to inclusion in the special issue.

By submitting a paper to the conference, you agree that, if the paper is accepted for the conference, you will present the paper at the conference, submit the paper for the special issue of Legal Theory, and not submit the paper elsewhere until an editorial decision has been made. You also agree to publish the paper in Legal Theory, if the paper is accepted for the special issue.

Limited financial support for travel and accommodation may be available for those who do not have another source of funding.
