Editor Sought for Law & Society Review

The Law & Society Association has issued the following announcement:
Editor Sought for Law & Society Review
The term of Editor of the Law & Society Review, Joachim Savelsberg and Tim Johnson, will end with the conclusion of Volume 50 (2016). The Editor Search Committee is eager to receive nominations, including self-nominations, for this important position in the law and society community.

The Editor's term is for three years (Vols. 51-53, 2017-2019) and includes an ex officio appointment to the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee of the Law and Society Association. Given the time needed for transition and the lead time to publication, the new editor should expect to begin receiving initial manuscript submissions beginning in February 2016; the current editors envision a period of overlapping responsibilities with the current editors handling submission of revised manuscripts and the new editor(s) handling initial submissions. 

Persons interested in learning more about the Editor's position, expressing interest in the position, or making nominations should contact a member of the Editor Search Committee as soon as possible, and no later than Sept 1, 2014. (Please include nominees’ e-mail and mailing addresses.) Teams of co-editors are welcome.
All members of the Editor Search Committee will be attending the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Law and Society Association in Minneapolis, MN (May 29-June 1).If you will be attending the meeting and have thoughts or questions about the position or suggestions about nominees, we encourage you to speak with one of us on the Search Committee.

Formal applications or expressions of interest should be e-mailed or mailed to the chair, Shari Diamond.
