Junior Faculty Forum

2021 Update: Unfortunately, pandemic circumstances prevent us from hosting the Junior Faculty Forum in Spring 2021. However, we're moving ahead with plans to offer the event in Fall 2021, if health conditions and University regulations allow us to do so. 

Sign up for updates as plans for the 2021 event develop. 


This annual workshop brings 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, and 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. We will also have plenty of opportunities for networking and more casual discussions.

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


We welcome all untenured law faculty at law schools who have been teaching for 10 years or less. Those who do not currently hold a permanent or visiting faculty appointment but expect to do so the following semester are also invited to participate.
