Junior Faculty Forum

The University of Richmond School of Law will host the Fourth Annual Junior Faculty Forum on Tuesday, May 12 and Wednesday, May 13, 2020 in Richmond, Virginia.

Registration will open in early spring of 2020. If you'd like to be added to the mailing list, please email Jessica Erickson

Overview

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.

Eligibility

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 beginning in Fall 2020 are also invited to participate.  

Submission Procedure

Submissions and registration will open in early spring of 2020.
