This might be an interesting venue for LPP research.


UCLA School of Law, Columbia Law School, University of Southern
California Center for Law, History & Culture, and Georgetown University Law
Center invite submissions for the fourth annual meeting of the Law &
Humanities Junior Scholar Workshop to be held at Georgetown University Law
Center in Washington, D.C. on June 12 & 13, 2005.


The paper competition is open to untenured professors, advanced graduate
students and post-doctoral scholars in law and the humanities; in
addition to drawing from numerous humanistic fields, the Workshop
welcomes critical, qualitative work in the social sciences.  Between
five and ten papers will be chosen, based on anonymous evaluation by an
interdisciplinary selection committee, for presentation at the June
Workshop.  At the Workshop, two senior scholars will comment on each
paper.  Commentators and other Workshop participants will be asked to
focus specifically on the strengths and weaknesses of the selected
scholarly projects, with respect to subject and methodology.  Moreover,
the selected papers will then serve as the basis for a larger
conversation among all the participants about the evolving standards by
which we judge excellence and creativity in interdisciplinary
scholarship, as well as about the nature of interdisciplinarity itself.

Papers should be works-in-progress between 30 and 50 double-spaced pages
in length (including footnotes/endnotes).  A paper that has been
submitted for publication is eligible as long as it will not be in
galley proofs or in print at the time of the Workshop.  The selected
papers will appear in a special issue of the Legal Scholarship Network;
there is no other publication commitment.  The Workshop will pay the
travel expenses of authors whose papers are selected for presentation.

Submissions will be accepted until January 10, 2005, and should be sent
(preferably by e-mail) to:
