SLS Migration Law Section: Call for Papers for 2014 SLS Annual Conference at University of Nottingham – extended deadline -
5th March 2014
Dear Section Member
Due to technical problems with the SLS email system we are now extending the deadline for the Migration law section’s call for papers, 2014 SLS Annual Conference to be held at the University of Nottingham from Tuesday 9th to Friday 12th September. The overall theme of the conference this year will be 'Judging in the 21st Century'.
The Migration Law Section will meet in the second half of the conference on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th September.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please e-mail a proposed title and short abstract to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th April 2014.
I would welcome proposals for papers on any issue relating to migration law and policy, including those addressing this year's conference theme. Alternatively, if you would like to propose a topic of current interest for a panel or roundtable discussion, please do get in touch to see if this can be arranged.
As the SLS is keen to ensure that as many members with good quality papers as possible are able to present, speakers are strongly discouraged from presenting more than one paper at the conference. With this in mind, I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are also responding to calls for papers from other sections.
Please note that whilst you need only to send a proposed title and abstract at this stage, speakers are encouraged to submit a full paper to the SLS paperbank before the conference. The SLS offers a Best Paper Prize which can be awarded to academics at any stage of their career. The Prize carries a £250 monetary award and winning papers are published in Legal Studies. Further details about the Prize are available at http://sections.legalscholars.ac.uk/best-paper-prize.cfm though please note that to be eligible all authors must be fully paid-up members of the SLS and the paper must not:
• have been published previously or have been accepted or be under consideration for publication; or
• exceed 10,000 words
I have also been asked to remind you that all speakers will need to book and pay to attend the conference. Booking information will be circulated in due course.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
The Society's Annual Conference in 2015 will be held on 1 - 4 September at the University of York. Further details are available here.
