Call for Papers: 2015 ABA Criminal Justice Section Fall Institute Roundtables (Oct. 22)
Once again, the ABA Criminal Justice Section Academics Committee will host work-in-progress roundtables at the annual Criminal Justice Section Fall Institute in Washington, DC. The roundtables will be held on Thursday, October 22, 2015 from 12:30-3:00pm at the Loews Madison Hotel, and the ABA will provide sandwiches and drinks for lunch. The rest of the CJS Fall Institute programs will take place later in the day on Thursday, October 22 and on Friday, October 23 at the same hotel. The entire ABA CJS Fall Institute Program is available here.
We hope you will consider workshopping your criminal justice works-in-progress at these roundtables. Participants will present their work in a roundtable format, and abstracts or drafts will be shared among presenters and discussants in advance of the workshop. If you're interested in participating, please email an abstract of your paper of no more than 500 words to Lucian Dervan at email@example.com by Sept. 15, 2015. Space is limited, and presenters will be chosen by members of the organizing committee.
This is an excellent opportunity for academics at any stage of their careers, and for those who would like to transition to academia, to workshop pieces at an early stage of development or obtain feedback on more developed pieces. Workshop presenters will be responsible for their own travel and hotel costs, but there is no registration fee for participating in the roundtables. If you decide to participate in the remainder of the ABA CJS Fall Institute, you will need to register for that event separately - see here for registration information
