I’m happy to see that the opportunities for junior scholars to workshop papers are multiplying. In addition to the University of Washington workshop we recently noted, Columbia will be hosting its 2d Annual Sabin Colloquium on Innovative Environmental Law Scholarship. The Colloquium will take place May 8-9, 2014. Travel costs will be covered for all participants. A panel of distinguished scholars will select the papers. From the organizers:
Eligible applicants are pre-tenure professors, fellows, visiting assistant professors, and other junior scholars in similar academic positions. Papers on environmental law, energy law, natural resources law or water law are eligible.The panel will select the proposals for discussion based on the degree of innovation they exhibit, the extent to which they point toward practical solutions to environmental problems, and whether, based on the scholarly and analytical quality of the proposals, they are likely to lead to high-quality work products.To enter, please submit a cover letter, an outline or concept paper of 5 -15 double-spaced pages, and a C.V. to [email protected] by March 7. If an article has already been drafted, please just submit a summary of no more than 15 pages. Footnotes are not expected. Articles that have already been accepted for publication are not eligible. This event is for early-stage work that can still be significantly shaped by the discussion at the Colloquium.
