ASLH 2016: Electronic Submission for Proposals, Extended Deadline

We have the following announcement:

The American Society for Legal History is happy to announce a new electronic submission system for proposals for the 2016 Annual Conference in Toronto. You can access the system here: All proposals should be submitted through this site, rather than to Those who have already submitted via email will be contacted and asked to resubmit via the electronic submission system. To account for any transition glitches, the deadline for submissions is extended to April 1, 2016.

The system is quite user friendly, and the materials are the same as under the old system: a short abstract for the proposal, individual abstracts for paper panels, and cvs for all presenters. One individual (not necessarily a presenter, and likely the person submitting the proposal) will have to be designated the “organizer” of the session. Please note that individuals may serve in more than one capacity: a chair may also be a commentator, for example, or an organizer may also be a presenter.

Technical questions may be submitted through the site. For other questions, please contact Program Committee Co-Chairs Victor Uribe,, and Bethany Berger,
