Sponsored by Stanford Law School, the International Junior Faculty Forum was established to stimulate the exchange of ideas and research, among younger scholars in the academy, from all parts of the world.

Stanford Law School is pleased to announce plans for the eight international forum. It will be held in Fall 2015, either in late September or early October (the exact date has not yet been fixed). It will take place at Stanford Law School, in Stanford, California.

In order to be considered for the 2015 International Junior Faculty Forum, authors must meet the following criteria:

  • Citizen of a country other than the United States
  • Current academic institution is outside of the United States and not a present student in the United States
  • Have held a faculty position or the equivalent, including positions comparable to junior faculty positions in research institutions, for less than seven years as of 2015; and
  • Last degree earned less than ten years before 2015

Papers may be on any legally relevant subject. We particularly welcome work that is interdisciplinary. The papers can make use of any relevant approach: they can be quantitative or qualitative, sociological, anthropological, historical, or economic. Stanford would like to emphasize that it welcomes papers from junior scholars from all parts of the world. 

The due date for the abstracts is 6 February 2015, although earlier submissions are welcome.
