To encourage and recognize excellent legal scholarship and to broaden participation by new law teachers in the Annual Meeting program, the association sponsored a call for papers for the 34th annual AALS Scholarly Papers Competition. Those who will have been full-time law teachers at an AALS member or fee-paid school for five years or less on July 1, 2018, were invited to submit a paper on a topic related to or concerning law by August 2, 2018. A committee of established scholars reviewed the submitted papers with the authors’ identities concealed.

Papers that make a substantial contribution to legal literature will be selected for presentation at the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Friday, January 4th from 8:30 am to 10:15 am.

Inquiries: Questions should be directed to AALS Scholarly Papers.
