Law, & Society Critical Research Network
and Society Association Annual Meeting
May 28 – May 31, 2015
The Aging, Law, and Society Critical Research
Network (CRN) invites scholars to participate in a multi-event workshop
sponsored by the CRN as part of the Law and Society Association’s 2014 Annual
Meeting. The Aging, Law & Society
CRN brings together scholars from across disciplines to share research and
ideas about the relationship between law and aging, including how the law
responds the needs of persons as they age and how law shapes the aging
meeting, the CRN will sponsor two primary types of panels at the annual
meeting: (1) themed panel presentations
on topics selected by the programming committee; and (2) workshops in which
scholars present works-in-progress and receive commentary from an assigned
related to law and aging. However, we
especially encourage proposals on the following topics:
approaches to elder law and old age policy;
interaction between elder law and labor and employment law;
and empirical methodologies for studying law and aging;
conference theme: law’s promises and law’s pathos in
domestic and transnational contexts.
addition to paper proposals, we also welcome:
