Mid-Atlantic Junior Faculty Forum: Call for Papers

The University of Richmond School of Law invites submissions for the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Junior Faculty Forum. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 10 and Thursday, May 11, 2017 in Richmond, Virginia.


This new workshop will bring together junior law scholars to present their scholarship in an informal collegial atmosphere.  The workshop is timed to allow participants to incorporate feedback on early ideas or projects before the summer.  Papers and works-in-progress are welcome at any stage of completion.  To maximize discussion and feedback, the author will provide a brief introduction to the paper, but the majority of the individual sessions will be devoted to collective discussion of the papers. 

Richmond Law will provide all lunches and dinners for those attending the workshop, but attendees will cover their own travel and lodging costs.


All untenured law faculty at Mid-Atlantic law schools who have been teaching for ten years or less are eligible to participate.   Those who do not currently hold a permanent or visiting faculty appointment, but expect to do so beginning in fall 2017 are also welcome. 

Submission Procedure

If you would like to participate, please send an abstract of the paper you would like to present to Jessica Erickson at no later than Friday, March 17, 2017.  Please include your name, current position, and contact information in the accompanying e-mail.  


Any questions concerning the workshop should be directed to Professor Jessica Erickson (
