Call for Papers, American Society for Legal History

The call for papers for the 2007 American Society for Legal History meeting is out. This meeting is the place to go for serious, substantive comments on historical work related to law. It should be on the agenda of folks in history and political science who don't necessarily think of themselves as "legal historians," and is an especially essential stop for graduate students in history, political science and law-related fields doing historical work related to law.

The deadline is February 1, 2007.


American Society for Legal History
Tempe Mission Palms Hotel
Tempe, Arizona
October 25-28, 2007

The Program Committee of the ASLH invites proposals for complete panels and individual papers for the 2007 meeting, to be held October 25-28 in Tempe, Arizona. Panels and papers on any facet or period of legal history are welcome. We particularly welcome topics and participants representing the full range of the Society’s diversity.

Panel proposals should include the following: a c.v. for every person on the panel, including complete contact information; 300-word abstracts of individual papers; complete or partial drafts of papers, where possible; and a short description of the panel. Individual papers submissions should consist of an abstract, a draft paper (where possible), and a c.v.

Those who presented at the 2006 conference are welcome to submit papers and/or proposals for the 2007 conference. Although the committee will strive to include papers from those who have not presented recently, there will be no rule against presenting in consecutive years.

The deadline for submissions will be February 1, 2007. Electronic submissions (in Word or Word Perfect) are strongly encouraged and should be sent to
