May 27, 2015 – The University of Houston Law Center is co-hosting a workshop in August for early-career scholars to share feedback on research ideas, works-in-progress, or articles being polished for publication.
The 2015 Texas Legal Scholars Workshop, co-hosted by Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, is open to Texas legal scholars of all disciplines with fewer than 10 years in the classroom.
Each author will present a 5- to 10-minute synopsis of his or her paper, followed by 15 to 20 minutes of comments by a primary commenter and further discussion with other attendees. Each participant is expected to serve as primary commenter on at least one paper.
The workshop, which is intended to become an annual event, will give attendees the chance to meet other early-career scholars in Texas, share feedback on research, and enjoy a few social events. There is no registration fee. Attendees are responsible for their own hotel and travel expenses, but breakfast and lunches will be paid for by the University of Houston Law Center.
The workshop will be held at the UHLC campus Aug. 28 and 29 with the Friday session running approximately from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and the Saturday session from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The deadline for registering is June 1. Click here for more information, hotel options, and to register. When registering, please submit your written idea, abstract, work-in-progress, or polished draft. Updated drafts may be posted at the same web address as your paper progresses.
