Legal Scholarship 4.0: Looking Toward the Future

  • Conference Call
  • The School of Law at the North­east­ern Uni­ver­sity (NEU) is kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in a con­fer­ence enti­tled “Legal Schol­ar­ship 4.0: Look­ing Toward the Future”, held March 13 – 14, 2014 in Boston, Mass­a­chu­setts, United States.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    At the out­set of for­mal legal edu­ca­tion, legal schol­ar­ship was largely doc­tri­nal. Then, in the wake of legal real­ism, a sec­ond era emerged, with legal schol­ars more focused on pol­icy than the­ory. Dur­ing the late 20th cen­tury, there was a sharp turn toward the­ory. This third wave of legal schol­ar­ship was marked by increased inter­dis­ci­pli­nary schol­ar­ship and diver­sity in the acad­emy as well as grow­ing rela­tion­ships within uni­ver­si­ties. We are now in a new era of legal schol­ar­ship — Ver­sion 4.0. North­east­ern Uni­ver­sity School of Law invites you to a con­fer­ence explor­ing the future of legal schol­ar­ship through con­ver­sa­tions among lead­ing legal scholars.

    Call for Papers

    To accom­pany pan­els dis­cussing the goals and meth­ods of legal schol­ar­ship 4.0, North­east­ern invites junior schol­ars (those who have spent seven years or fewer as a full-​time law pro­fes­sor) to share their works-​in-​progress as exam­ples of the new legal scholarship.

    Break-​out works-​in-​progress ses­sions will include a com­ment on each paper by senior fac­ulty, and dis­cus­sion by fel­low pan­elists and con­fer­ence par­tic­i­pants. Con­ver­sa­tions will con­tinue through­out the con­fer­ence at break­fast and lunch (pro­vided), as well as dur­ing the speak­ers’ din­ner. Inter­ested junior fac­ulty mem­bers are invited to sub­mit an abstract (not to exceed 500 words) of the project they would like to present to Rick Doyon. The cho­sen par­tic­i­pants will be expected to sub­mit com­pleted paper drafts by Feb­ru­ary 13, 2014, and to par­tic­i­pate in the entirety of the conference.
