We are currently accepting submissions from graduate students and law students from all universities for presentations relating to all areas within legal theory including, but not limited to:
1. General and normative jurisprudence
2. The nature of law
3. Law and morality
4. Law and authority (and political theory more broadly conceived)
5. Judicial review / judicial activism / theories of the judicial role
6. Constitutionalism
7. Philosophical foundations of specific domestic legal fields (criminal law, tort law, contract law, administrative law, etc.)
8. International law and transnational law
9. Human rights
10. Feminist approaches to legal theory / critical legal studies
11. The history of legal philosophy
Papers should be approximately 3000-4000 words in length and be in .doc format. Each presenter will be given a one hour presentation slot, of which 25-30 minutes will be dedicated to presenting the paper, with the other 30-35 minutes dedicated to participant responses. An abstract of 100-200 words should accompany all papers. All papers and abstracts must be submitted no later than January 20, 2013.
A panel of both legal philosophy graduate students and professors at McMaster and York, and law students and professors at Osgoode Hall Law School will review submissions using criteria of interest, sophistication, and general overlap with similar themes. All papers will be subject to blind review. Notice of acceptance will be given on February 13, 2013.
While only graduate and law student papers will be accepted for presentation, all persons (including students, faculty, or any persons with a general interest in legal theory) are welcome to attend.
