Law & STEM Junior Scholars Conference 2022 - Call for Papers

The Northwestern, Penn and Stanford Law Schools are pleased to announce that the Fifth Junior Faculty Forum will be held at the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago on October 21-22, 2022. The forum is currently seeking submissions from junior faculty interested in presenting papers at the Forum. The deadline for submission is Friday, July 1, 2022.

A group of junior scholars will be chosen on a blind basis from among those submitting papers. One or more senior scholars, not necessarily from Northwestern, Penn, and Stanford, will comment on each paper. The audience will include the participating junior faculty, faculty from the host institutions, and invited guests.

Our goal is to promote interdisciplinary research exploring how developments in STEM are affecting law and vice versa. Preference will be given to papers with the strong interdisciplinary approaches integrating these two areas of study.

There is no publication commitment. Northwestern, Penn, and Stanford will pay presenters’ and commentators’ travel expenses, though international flights may be only partially reimbursed.

Any questions about the conference or submission procedure should be directed both to Professor David Schwartz ([email protected]) and [email protected]
