The University of Washington has issued a call for abstracts for its 3rd annual Young Environmental Law Scholars Workshop. Here’s how the organizers describe it:
This collegial two-day workshop features discussion of works-in-progress by early career environmental law scholars: professors with two or fewer years of tenure, pre-tenure professors, visiting assistant professors, or legal fellows. We invite submissions from the broad fields of environmental, natural resources, and energy law. Prior workshop participants are welcome to submit new works.
For juniors, it’s a great opportunity to get comments on a work in progress from a selection of esteemed scholars, this year including Lisa Heinzerling, Christine Klein and John Nagle as well as UW’s own Bob Anderson and Bill Rodgers.The workshop is scheduled for July 9-11. UW will provide meals (and a beautiful setting!), but participants will be responsible for travel and lodging costs.
Abstracts are not due until March 15, but of course it’s never too early to get cracking. Full drafts will be expected roughly one month before the workshop. To apply, send a cover letter, an abstract of no more than 500 words, and a C.V. to email@example.com by March 15, 2014.
As one of the old fogey commentators at the inaugural workshop, I can heartily endorse this event as both fun and useful for all involved.
