Call for Papers: ASIL Annual Meeting - New Voices Sessions

The American Society of International Law has issued a call for papers for at least one "New Voices" session for its 2015 Annual Meeting. Here's the call:

2015 ASIL Annual Meeting Call for Papers – New Voices Sessions

From April 8-11, 2015, the American Society of International Law will convene its 109th Annual Meeting. The aim of the 2015 Annual Meeting is to promote a rigorous discussion on the question of how international law is “adapting to a rapidly changing world.”

Next year, as in the past, the Planning Committee for the Annual Meeting would like to include at least one "New Voices" session that will provide a platform for junior scholars and practitioners to present their works-in-progress.

ASIL invites submissions from non-tenured scholars and junior practitioners on any topic of international law. Any authors who submitted a paper abstract in the first call for papers and session proposals do not need to submit again; those abstracts remain under consideration.

Abstracts should be well developed and reflect advanced progress on a paper that will be presented at the Meeting. Final papers will be due by March 30, 2015.

Send your abstract to by no later than Thursday, October 30, 2014, with the subject line “New Voices Proposal.” Please send the abstract as a Microsoft Word attachment, including your name and contact information (email address & affiliation). Abstracts should be no longer than 1000 words. Selected authors will be notified by the end of November.

Please direct any questions to the co-chairs of the ASIL New Professionals Interest Group at
