Call for Papers – AALS Section on Law, Medicine & Health Care Works-in-Progress for New Teachers

Call for
Papers
AALS Section
on Law, Medicine & Health Care
Works-in-Progress
for New Law School Teachers
AALS Annual
Meeting, Washington, DC
Saturday,
January 3, 2015
  
The
AALS Section on Law, Medicine and Health Care is pleased to announce a Call for
Papers for a special Works-in-Progress for New Law School Teachers Program.  The Section will run the Program from 5:15 to
6:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 3, at the AALS 2015 Annual Meeting in Washington,
DC.
This
program will bring together junior and senior health law scholars for a lively
discussion of the junior scholar’s’ works-in-progress.  Junior health law scholars will submit papers
that they expect to submit in the spring 2015 law review submission cycle.  After they briefly present their papers in a
concurrent roundtable setting, senior scholars will provide oral comments and
critiques.  This new program presents an
opportunity for the audience to hear cutting edge health law scholarship by
recent members of the academy.
We
will limit our selection to two or three papers.
Form & Length of Submission
Eligible faculty members are
invited to submit either manuscripts or abstracts dealing with any aspect of health
law or policy.  Abstracts must be
comprehensive enough to allow the committee to meaningfully evaluate the aims
and likely content of the papers proposed. 
Papers may be accepted for publication but must be at a
stage where input still would be useful.  Papers must not be published prior to the
Annual Meeting.
Deadline & Submission Method
To
be considered, manuscripts or abstracts and a CV must be submitted
electronically to both: 
Chair,
Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care
Ani B. Satz, Emory University School
of Law, asatz@law.emory.edu
Chair-elect,
Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care
Thaddeus Pope, Hamline University
School of Law, tpope01@hamline.edu
The
deadline for submission is September 1, 2014.
Selection
& Notification
Papers
will be selected after careful review and discussion by the Executive Board of
the AALS Section on Law, Medicine, and Health Care.
The
authors of the selected papers will be notified by September 22, 2014.
If
a selected author has submitted only an abstract for review, the author must
submit the corresponding manuscript by December 15, 2014.
The
Call for Paper participants will be responsible for paying their annual meeting
registration fee and travel expenses.
Eligibility
Full-time
untenured faculty members of AALS member law schools are eligible to submit
papers.  The following are ineligible to
submit: foreign, visiting (without a full-time position at an AALS member law
school) and adjunct faculty members, graduate students who are not also
enrolled in a qualifying J.D. program, fellows, non-law school faculty, and
faculty at fee-paid non-member schools.  Papers
co-authored with a person ineligible to submit on their own may be submitted by
the eligible co-author.

Please
forward this Call for Papers to any eligible faculty who might be interested.
