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 35th 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, 2019, were invited to submit a paper on a topic related to or concerning law by August 1, 2019. 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 AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C..
Questions should be directed to AALS Scholarly Papers.
