Call for Papers

 

The Association for Law, Property & Society (ALPS) is a scholarly organization for those engaged in scholarship on all aspects of property law and society.  Its annual meeting brings together scholars from many disciplines to discuss their work and to foster dialogue among those working in property law, policy, and theory. Prior meetings have averaged 150 participants, many coming from outside North America.

ALPS will hold its 6th Annual Meeting at the University of Georgia School of Law, Athens, Georgia USA, May 1-2, 2015.

We welcome papers on any subject related to property law, including pedagogy, and from a diversity of perspectives. As in previous years, we will have both draft paper panels and early works-in-progress panels dedicated to brainstorming scholarship at its beginning stages. We also plan to support early-career scholars in their development and in connecting to mentors through the conference events.

You may submit an individual paper or a panel (usually 4 presenters). Panel proposals may include a collection of paper presentations, roundtables, or book panels. Paper abstracts should not exceed 250 words. If submitting a panel, please submit a panel abstract and individual paper abstracts.

Registration and paper/panel submission is available through the conference website at http://www.alps.syr.edu

The deadline for submitting papers and panels is February 1, 2015, but registration for the conference will continue to be available after that date. Please do not submit papers and panels after February 1 as part of your registration without having emailed Jim Smith, jim@uga.edu for permission to submit late. We will do our best to accommodate late submission requests, but can only guarantee that proposals submitted by the February 1 deadline will be able to be considered for the conference.

A discounted early registration rate of $150 is available until February 1, 2015. After that date, the registration rate is $180. The registration rate for full-time students (JD, PhD, or other program) is $50.

In addition, in recognition of the international and interdisciplinary diversity of ALPS members, we invite paper or panel submissions relating to the following special themes:

·         Eviction and Displacement

·         Law and Geography

 

We will cluster papers and panels submitted in connection with these themes in such manner as to allow conference participants to attend all panels organized around each theme.

The standard length of each session will be 90 minutes and we expect sessions to include time for questions and discussion from the audience as well as presentation.
