Call For Chapter Proposals | Deadly Voyages Date: September 24, 2017 to November 30, 2017
Subject Fields: Human Rights, Immigration and Migration History Studies, Indigenous Studies, Law and Legal History, Colonial Violence, Drug War, Human Trafficking, U.S. – Mexico Borderlands, Boat People, Mediterranean Crossing.

Migrants the world over have been compelled to make deadly voyages to escape harsh conditions in pursuit of a better life. Whether it is fatal journey made by “Boat People” to Australia; migrants desperately crossing the Mediterranean; Syrian refugees converging at the frontiers of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt; or unaccompanied minors from “Northern Triangle” nations trekking thousands of miles on to enter the United States via Mexico; their vulnerability is certain.

Many fall prey to traffickers, smugglers, violence, exploitation and death. For instance, Amnesty International reports that, at the current rate of 2.7 deaths per every 100 people, 2017 promises to be the deadliest year for refugees crossing the Mediterranean. Despite the increasing number of deaths of forced migrants, international law and communities struggle with coordinating sociolegal and humanitarian efforts to effectively address the current global migrant crisis. The purpose of this forthcoming book is to examine the efficacy of international, regional, national and local responses to deadly voyages and dangerous journeys of migrants globally. Interested authors should send a title (12 words maximum); brief description of your proposed chapter (300-500 words maximum); and a CV to no later than 30 November 2017.

CALL FOR PAPERS – 2018 Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop Columbia Law School, the University of Southern California Center for Law, History & Culture, UCLA School of Law, Georgetown University Law School, Stanford Law School, and the University of Pennsylvania invite submissions for the annual meeting of the Law & Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop, to be held at Stanford Law School in Palo Alto, California, on June 4 and 5, 2018.

The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities. In addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, we welcome critical, qualitative work in the social sciences. Based on anonymous evaluation by an interdisciplinary selection committee, between five and ten papers will be chosen for presentation at the June Workshop. At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each paper. Commentators and other Workshop participants will be asked to focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology. The selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.

Papers must be works-in-progress that do not exceed 15,000 words in length (including footnotes/endnotes); most papers selected for inclusion in recent years have been at least 10,000 words long. An abstract of no more than 200 words must also be included with the paper submission. A dissertation chapter may be submitted, but we strongly suggest that it be edited so that it stands alone as a piece of work with its own integrity. A paper that has been submitted for publication is eligible for selection so long as it will not be in galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop; it is important that authors still be in a position at the time of the Workshop to consider comments they receive there and incorporate them as they think appropriate in their revisions. We ask that those submitting papers be careful to omit or redact any information in the body of the paper that might serve to identify them, as we adhere to an anonymous or “blind” selection process.

The selected papers will appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network; there is no other publication commitment. (We will accommodate the wishes of chosen authors who prefer not to have their paper posted publicly with us because of publication commitments to other journals.) The Workshop will pay the domestic travel and hotel expenses of authors whose papers are selected for presentation. For authors requiring airline travel from outside the United States, the Workshop will cover such travel expenses up to a maximum of $1000.

Submissions (in Word, no pdf files) will be accepted until January 5, 2018, and should be sent by e-mail to: be sure to include your name, institutional affiliation (if any), telephone and e-mail contact information in your covering email (not in the paper itself).

For more information, please send an email inquiry to To see selected papers from some of the previous years’ workshops, go to:

Arguing for the Rule of Law: Using the Hebrew Bible and Caricatures of Foreigners in British and Spanish America Date: Friday, October 26, 2018
Location: Newberry Library, Chicago
Deadline for Applications: November 8, 2017

This is a call for papers in anticipation of a one-day conference to be organized by Jorge Cañizares-Esguerra (University of Texas) and Richard Ross (University of Illinois) through the Symposium on Comparative Early Modern Legal History []. The conference, to be held at the Newberry Library in Chicago on Friday, October 26, 2018, is entitled, “Arguing for the Rule of Law: Using the Hebrew Bible and Caricatures of Foreigners in British and Spanish America.” It will address the following topic: How did settlers, imperial officials, indigenous peoples, and Africans in the New World seek to demonstrate, or disprove, that a polity respected the rule of law? (The phrase “rule of law” is modern; but the core of the idea is not). Colonial rule invited accusations of arbitrary government and systematic lawlessness. This conference will focus on two common techniques used to assess whether a polity respected the supremacy of law. First, controversialists asked whether governance accorded with God’s expectations of justice as laid out in Scripture, particularly the Hebrew Bible. Second, caricatures of other societies could be held up to make one’s own appear lawful and just, or the reverse. British American settlers applauded the civility of their law by reference to the presumed barbarism of the Irish and Amerindians. They saw liberty in their exploitive legal order by opposing it to the supposed absolutism of the Spanish and French empires. Spanish settlers justified their rule and derecho by contrasting them to the law of indigenous polities and of their New World rivals. The conference will bring together historians, law professors, and social scientists to think about the complex debates about the rule of law in the English and Iberian Atlantic.

Interested presenters should submit an abstract of between 200 and 500 words and a c.v. by November 8, 2017. Please send submissions and inquiries to Richard Ross []; 217-244-7890. No previously published work will be accepted. Applicants will be notified by email shortly after the submission deadline. Accepted participants will be required to submit a full paper of no more than 10,000 words by the end of September 2018. Papers will be pre-circulated and read by all participants. The conference will pay for travel and hotel expenses.

Empirical Legal Studies Replication Conference to be held on Friday April 27, 2018, in Claremont, California. Claremont McKenna College’s Program on Empirical Legal Studies (PELS) is pleased to announce the inaugural Empirical Legal Studies Replication Conference to be held on Friday April 27, 2018, in Claremont, California.

There is a growing awareness of the importance of replication in the empirical social sciences. The creation of data repositories for published articles and the publishing of research protocols prior to estimation are becoming increasingly common (and even expected). Nevertheless replication studies remain extremely difficult to publish in scholarly journals. To advance and encourage replication studies in empirical legal studies, PELS is hosting this replication conference and papers accepted to the conference will be published in a special section of the International Review of Law and Economics.
We are currently soliciting proposals that detail a plan to replicate an important study in law and economics/empirical legal studies. Although we welcome submissions generally, we strongly encourage proposals from teams consisting of a faculty member and one or more graduate students, in recognition of the fact that replication studies are also an excellent form of pedagogy.

Proposals should be 4-5 pages in length and must include details on how the authors propose to proceed, including a plain for obtaining the data necessary for the replication (e.g., is the data publically available, or has the author of the study to be replicated provided them the data?). We would also welcome (but do not require) additional details on ways the authors might plan to extend the study (e.g., by conducting the original estimation using different time periods, different jurisdictions, or other estimation techniques). Proposed replication studies will be judged on how important the paper is to law and economics/empirical legal studies and the tractability of the proposed replication.

Authors of accepted proposals must commit to attending the conference. In general, graduate student authors will present their own papers, and their faculty co-authors will serve as discussants on another paper presented at the conference.

PELS will reimburse up to one graduate student and one faculty member for accommodations and reasonable travel costs. Please email inquiries and proposals to Eric Helland at

Deadline: October 15, 2017

2018 Law and Development Conference: “Law and Development: Theory and Practice,” Berlin, Germany, July 6, 2018 The 2018 Law and Development Conference, co-hosted by Humboldt University Faculty of Law, Walter de Gruyter GmbH, and the Law and Development Institute, commemorates the tenth anniversary of Law and Development Review (LDR), currently the only peer-reviewed academic journal in existence devoted to law and development studies. Law and development studies are at an important juncture. Although scholarship in law and development, which explores the relationship between law and social and economic progress, has evolved over the last four decades, this area of inquiry remains unfamiliar to many legal scholars, lawyers, and policy makers. Scholars have not yet been able to establish law and development as a robust and coherent academic field by developing a theory that systematically explains the interrelationship between law and development. This conference will explore possibilities for new breakthrough by examining current studies and considering new approaches on the following sub-topics:

Papers will be selected by blind peer-review. We ask all interested speakers to submit one-page paper abstracts by January 1, 2018.

Abstract Submission: January 1, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: February 1, 2018
Final Selection of Speakers: February 15, 2018
Full Paper Submission: June 1, 2018

Selected papers will be published in Law and Development Review Special Issue in 2019. All speakers and participants are expected to make their own arrangements for travel and accommodation during the conference. Please submit your abstract and conference inquiries to Law and Development Institute (Professor Y.S. Lee) by email at with a cc to Corinna Roudani,

Legal Discourse: Context, Media and Social Power
5th International Conference
24-25-26 May 2018
Centre for Research in Language and Law (CRILL) Caserta, Italy
The influence of Web-based technologies and social media has entered the mainstream and become so pervasive in human communication today that it is difficult to imagine any aspect of academic or professional life that has not been invaded by recent developments in new media. Being a very conservative discipline within its rationalistic terms of discourses and genres, law has always been relatively slow to accept any change in its traditions, processes, practices and, of course, mindset. However, even in law, particularly in the last few years, there has been an enthusiastic acceptance of the role of new media sites and services in the way law enforcement operates in investigative activities, introducing substantial changes to communication between organizations, institutions, communities and individuals and developing comprehensive integration strategies to improve access to justice. This growing influence of media usage is also making its way into novel forms of legal discourse, and also, perhaps more critically, into specific issues arising from the use of legal discourse in its various traditional and newly-emerging (social) media contexts, and brings to the fore the social power these novel resources are now framing for problem-based inquiries in law. Alongside this, potential is mounting for the role of (social-) media as an instrument of interdiscursive and interdisciplinary procedure, exploitation, and management of public and private discursive space and practice and is already visible in current socio-legal media contexts.

The Centre for Research in Language and Law (CRILL) of the University of Campania ‘Luigi Vanvitelli’ invites original paper, panel and poster proposals that explore language through these broad areas: legal discourse in contexts; law in broadcast media (film, radio, television), digital media (internet/web-based and mobile technologies), and print media (magazines, newspapers, books, comics); media in the construction, storing and dissemination of legal knowledge; web-based media for the construction of interdiscursive/interdisciplinary issues affecting law and other fields (politics, economics, criminology, sociology, psychology, healthcare and medicine); social media in criminal and forensic investigations; social media in the process of conflict resolution; issues of harassment, defamation, privacy/publicity/government surveillance, freedom of speech, cyber bullying, trolling and intellectual property in social media environments; disciplining and regulating social media activities; legal and ethical challenges on social media; role, power, identity, and ideology on social media; multilingualism/multiculturalism, migration, race, and ethnicity on social media; web-based media resources for higher legal education (formal and informal learning, collaborative work)

Contributors are invited to send an abstract of their proposed paper, panel or poster by no later than 15th November 2017 to the following address: using the online form available at the CRILL conference website:

Selected papers peer-reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee and other independent reviewers will be invited for publication in the Legal Discourse and Communication international series (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, UK).

Call for manuscripts for the The University of Memphis Law Review Opioid abuse and addiction are relentlessly ravaging the American public, a battle whose toll leaves too many people paying the ultimate price—their life.  Addressing the opioid epidemic with a monolithic approach stunts positive change.  A dynamic “pathways approach,” on the other hand, recognizes that the opioid epidemic derives from separate, dueling sources—legal and illegal—and that the issues that arise in each pathway ultimately converge on the individual.  Thus, by fully appreciating the pitfalls in each pathway, and comprehensively crafting and applying the law to address them, we may yet prevent further escalation of the opioid epidemic. The University of Memphis Law Review invites manuscripts for presentation at its March 2018 Symposium, “The American Addiction:  A Pathways Approach to Addressing the Opioid Epidemic,” and for publication in Volume 48, Number 4.  The Symposium will welcome policy makers, scholars, and practitioners to present approaches to legal issues on a range of topics, including but not limited to the intersection of the opioid epidemic and perspectives of the pharmaceutical industry (e.g. REMS programs, drug approval process, advertising/marketing), regulatory agencies (e.g. FDA and DEA), healthcare professionals (e.g. physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners), policy-makers (e.g. impact and shortcomings of state and federal legislation such as the Controlled Substances Act, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act), concerned community members (e.g. family and friends of addicts), law enforcement officers, lawyers (e.g. prosecution and defense), and judges (e.g. specialty courts, recovery programs, trauma-informed approaches).

To submit a manuscript for consideration in the 2018 Memphis Law Symposium, please send it directly to Symposium Editor Rachel Barenie at no later than December 1, 2017, with “Opioid Epidemic Symposium” in the subject line.

Call for Papers/Abstracts: Edited Volume on Anxieties About the Future of Democracy Abstracts are being solicited for a collection of essays on the topic of democracy and democratic equality, with an emphasis on those areas that may be responsible for our failure to realize the goals and methods of democracy, in the West, beginning in the 80s, through to the present. Recent events in the United States, Great Brittan, and Western Europe give reason to take stock in the importance of the democratic method, and reflect on the ways in which citizens and leaders may make corrections so that we can continue to achieve the high ideas and goals of living in a free and democratic society.
