Call for Papers: Cross-Currents in International Law, Human Rights Law and National Security Law

The Sections on National Security Law, International Human Rights, and International Law of the Association of American Law Schools have issued a call for papers for a panel on "Cross-Currents in International Law, Human Rights Law and National Security Law" at the 2010 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Here's the call:
Recent years have seen unprecedented interactions among three areas of law: Human Rights Law, International Law, and National Security Law. The three AALS Sections that focus on each area of law will cosponsor a call-for-papers session exploring these interactions at the AALS' January 2010 annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. A Selection Committee comprising one officer of each section welcomes abstract submissions from all scholars, with preference given to authors who belong to at least one of these AALS sections. The Committee also will give preference to papers that highlight the cross-section among two or more of these fields, and will endeavor to have a cross-section of such cross-currents represented at the session. Deadline for submission, of abstracts no longer than five double-spaced pages, is Friday, September 18, 2009; please e-mail the submission, in Word or PDF format, to Michael Kelly at
