Y/S/H Junior Faculty Forum, June 5-6 2019 Request for Submissions (including IP)

Junior Faculty Forum

June 5-6, 2019, Yale Law School

Stanford, and Harvard Law Schools announce the 20th session of the Junior
Faculty Forum to be held at Yale Law School on June 5-6, 2019.

Forum’s objective is to encourage the work of scholars recently appointed to a
tenure-track position by providing experience in the pursuit of scholarship and
the nature of the scholarly exchange. Meetings are held each year, rotating
among Yale, Stanford, and Harvard. Twelve to twenty scholars (with one to seven
years in teaching) will be chosen on a blind basis to present their work at the
Forum. One or more senior scholars will comment on each paper. The audience
will include the participating junior faculty, faculty from the host
institutions, and invited guests. The goal is discourse both on 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 by
strengthening ties between new and veteran professors.

TOPICS: Each year the Forum
invites submissions on selected legal topics. For the upcoming 2019 meeting,
the topics will cover the following areas of the law:
Litigation and Dispute Resolution
and Commercial Law
and Securities Law
Business Law
Law Theory and Comparative Private Law
Estates, and Unjust Enrichment

A jury of accomplished
scholars, with expertise in the particular subject area, will choose the papers
to be presented. There is no publication commitment. Yale, Stanford, or Harvard
will pay presenters’ and commentators’ travel expenses, though international
flights may be only partially reimbursed.

Authors who teach law in the U.S. in a tenured or tenure-track position and
have not been teaching at either of those ranks for a total of more than seven
years are eligible to submit their work. American citizens or permanent
residents teaching abroad are also eligible provided that they have held a
faculty position or the equivalent, including positions comparable to junior
faculty positions in research institutions, for less than seven years and that
they earned their last degree after 2009. We accept jointly authored
submissions, but each of the coauthors must be individually eligible to
participate in the Forum. Papers that
will be published prior to Forum are not eligible.
There is no limit on the
number of submissions by any individual author. Faculty from Yale, Stanford,
and Harvard Law Schools are not eligible.

PROCEDURE: Electronic submissions should be sent to Katherine Pothin (katherine.pothin@yale.edu)
with the subject line “Junior Faculty Forum.” The deadline for submissions is February
1, 2019. Please remove all references to the author(s) in the paper. Please
include in the text of the email a cover note listing your name, the title of
your paper, any coauthors, and under which topic your paper falls. Each paper
may only be considered under one topic. Any questions about the submission
procedure should be directed both to Christine Jolls (christine.jolls@yale.edu) and
her assistant, Katherine Pothin (katherine.pothin@yale.edu).
