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 39th 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 August 31, 2023, were invited to submit a paper on a topic related to or concerning law by 5:00pm Eastern on August 3, 2023. 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 recognition at the 2023 AALS Annual Meeting.
