30 Shopping Days to the ASLH Deadline!

I'm moving up this previously posted call for papers for the annual meeting of the American Society for Legal History as a reminder that the deadline for submissions is February 6, about a month away. A good time for potential presenters to finalize the personnel on their panels!

***********************************************

The 2009 meeting of the American Society for Legal History will be in Dallas, Texas, November 12-14, 2009. The ASLH invites proposals for complete panels and individual papers on any facet or period of legal history, anywhere in the world. Financial assistance will be available for graduate students whose papers are accepted for the program.

Panel proposals should include the following: a c.v. for every person on the panel, including complete contact information, a short description of the panel, a 300-word abstract of each paper, and a draft of each paper, if possible.

Individual paper proposals should include the following: a c.v. for the author, including complete contact information, a 300-word abstract of the paper, and a draft of the paper, if possible.

The deadline for proposals will be February 6, 2009. Proposals should be sent as email attachments to Stuart Banner, at banner@law.ucla.edu.

Those unable to send proposals as email attachments can mail hard copies to:

For those wondering whether to submit a paper proposal or to pull together an entire panel: for this meeting, most folks get onto the program through full panel proposals. There are so many good panel submissions that few individual paper proposals are accepted.
