Prawfsfest! 9 comes to LA!

For those of you thinking about good shared-cost models to incubate early scholarship, you might want to consider the Prawfsfest! model. Tonight, Dave Fagundes (SW) and Michael Waterstone (LLS) begin hosting the 9th P-fest! workshop at Loyola Law School. Big thanks to LLS for opening their hearts and homes. After the jump, you can see the schedule. As usual, the pre-reqs for a P-fest are an early work in progress, pre-submission, pre-SSRN. Folks exchange drafts with about 10,000 words as expected reading, and any more is optional. An hour per paper where the "presenter" says nothing until everyone's had their chance to give constructive critical comments. And of course, special disquisitions are usually offered on the subject of best titles. I'm sad to miss the fun but I hope to hear a report later...
