Call for Papers: Yale Journal of International Law Young Scholars' Conference

This coming spring, the Yale Journal of International Law will host its sixth annual Young Scholars' Conference. Here's the call for papers:

The Yale Journal of International Law (YJIL) is accepting submissions for its Young Scholars' Conference, which will take place on March 1, 2008. The Conference aims to encourage scholarship in international law among current J.D. students by giving them an opportunity to present a paper and receive feedback from distinguished professors in the field. The Conference will include panel presentations of student scholarship, a roundtable discussion on careers in legal academia, a keynote address, and a closing dinner. Two of the papers presented at the Conference will be selected for publication in YJIL. Support for the Conference has been provided by the Oscar M. Ruebhausen '37 Fund.

YJIL will accept papers of no more than 15,000 words (including footnotes) on topics in international law from current J.D. students. Papers that have previously been published will not be considered. Presenters must be able to travel to New Haven, CT, for a full day of events on March 1, 2008. YJIL will provide presenting students with accommodations and cover up to $200 of their conference-related travel expenses.

Submissions, accompanied by author's c.v., should be sent to yjil.conference@yale.edu. Deadline: December 10, 2007.
