2022 Annual Comparative Law Work-In-Progress Workshop

We invite all interested comparative law scholars to consider submitting a paper to the next annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop, which will be held online, as a Zoom conference, February 3 – February 5, 2022, and hosted by the University of Illinois College of Law (with Princeton University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School co-hosting.) 

We invite all interested comparative law scholars to consider submitting a paper to the next annual Comparative Law Work-in-Progress Workshop Each of the seven selected presenters will be allocated a 75-minute session to get feedback on their work. These sessions will be scattered over the three-day period and will be scheduled to accommodate the presenters’ and commentators’ time zones. Each selected presenter will be expected to attend all of the other presenters’ sessions where time zone permits. 

Interested authors should submit papers to Jacqueline Ross at jeross1@illinois.edu. We ask for papers to be submitted by December 1, 2021. We will inform authors of our decision by December 18, 2021. The conference will run from Thursday, February 3 until Saturday afternoon, February 5, and will be held entirely online. 

The annual workshop continues to be an important forum in which comparative law work in progress can be explored among colleagues in a serious and thorough manner that will be truly helpful to the authors. “Work in progress” means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if already accepted for publication.) It includes law review articles, book chapters, and other appropriate genres. All fields of law and all jurisdictions are fair game. 

We ask for one contribution per author, limited to a maximum of 15,000 words (including notes), or, if the paper (or book chapter) is longer, to indicate which 15,000-word portion they would like to have read and discussed. Shorter papers are, of course, eagerly welcomed. 

Our objective is not only to provide an opportunity for the discussion of scholarly work but also to create an opportunity for comparative lawyers to meet and discuss comparative law in the company of sympathetic others, both in the sessions and outside (as Zoom permits). We hope that this will create synergy that fosters more dialogue, cooperation, and an increased sense of coherence for the discipline of comparative law. 

Co-Organized and Co-Hosted by Jacqueline Ross (University of Illinois College of Law), Kim Lane Scheppele (Princeton University), and Jacques deLisle (University of Pennsylvania Law School) 

Co-sponsored by the University of Illinois College of Law, Princeton University’s Center for Human Values, University of Pennsylvania Law School, and the American Society of Comparative Law
