From the Law and Society Association: Support Available For Junior Scholars

From the Law and Society Association:

Attention Junior Scholars - would you like a chance to present your ideas for the Law and Society Association at the 2014 annual meeting and receive generous travel support?

We invite junior scholars around the world with new and innovative ideas to submit them to the LSA Project on the 2nd  Half Century at the 50th Anniversary Meeting in Minneapolis MN May 29-June 1 2014. Winning authors will appear on a special 50th Anniversary Roundtable. They will also receive travel support, free registration, and a year’s free membership to the Law and Society Association.

The competition is organized by the LSA Project on the 2nd Half Century, which was created on the eve of LSA’s 50th Anniversary to stimulate discussion about the future role of the Association.

We invite junior scholars (grad students, post docs, and assistant professors) to submit short essays on the following theme:

What is the future of socio-legal studies, what new possibilities exist, and what innovations should the Law and Society Association consider as it enters the 2nd Half Century?Essays must be in English. They cannot exceed 2000 words. They could consider use of new technologies, new ways to build scholarly networks, new training initiatives, and other innovations. Successful essays may include assessment of present LSA activities as well as proposals for innovation.
