The First SELS Global Workshop for Junior Empirical-Legal Scholars
December 17th – 18th 2015, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
Paper Submission Deadline: 30 June 2015
The meeting is co-sponsored by the Society of Empirical Legal Studies (SELS) and The Center for Empirical Studies of Decision Making and the Law. The workshop aims to foster the research of scholars who have recently completed their PhD or have recently been appointed to a tenure track position, by providing them with a forum in which they can present their research and receive feedback from fellow empirical researchers.
Approximately ten scholars from around the world (submission criteria specified below) will be invited to the workshop. Each scholar will be assigned a commentator who will discuss their paper. The rigorous academic environment at the workshop will assist junior scholars to develop their ideas. The workshop is also intended to establish a sense of community among empirical legal scholars and help build cooperative relationships between participants.
To be eligible, an author must be an untenured faculty member at a research university in a tenure-track position; or a tenured faculty member if it has been less than five years since the initial entry-level appointment; or a full time post-doctoral fellow or a visiting associate professor at a research university. In addition, the committee will consider the work of authors that do not fit these criteria, but are new to the field of empirical legal studies.
The costs of airfare (coach) and accommodations of authors who will be invited to participate in the workshop will be covered by the Center for Empirical Studies of Decision Making and the Law.
Submissions should be sent to Ms. Ayelet Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line: “Workshop for Junior Empirical-Legal Scholars.” Only drafts of complete papers will beconsidered.
