York University, Toronto, has issued a Call for Papers for the 2016 Osgoode Hall Graduate Law Student Conference. The theme of the conference is "Exploring Law and Change Through Interdisciplinary Research, New Legal Realism and Other Perspectives--Choose Your Own Advanture."
Where law engages with social issues and interactions, many legal scholars have begun to apply knowledge from outside the disciplinary boundaries of law. From this interdisciplinary perspective, the conference will consider the myriad ways in which law facilitates, obstructs, and reacts to change. They also welcome general submissions from those whose work falls outside this theme. Submit proposals for papers, presentations, panels, workshops and other interventions (including art-based and performance contributions) from Master’s and Doctoral students, lawyers, educators, artists, and activists. Submissions may also be works in progress or finalized pieces, intended for or drawn from, thesis or dissertation proposals or chapters, major research papers, course papers, post-doctoral projects, and so on. To apply, submit an abstract of approximately 250 words in length and include (i) your name, (ii) title of the paper, (iii) your organization or institution (if any), and (iv) a list of up to five keywords to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submission is 4 December 2015 and successful applicants will be notified by early January. Information about the conference site, accommodations, and conference fees will be provided with your notice of acceptance. If you are successful, your presentation outline (a minimum of 500 words) or final paper must be submitted by 10 February 2016.
The conference will be held at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Ontario, from February 18th to 19th, 2016.
