Conference Participation

Call For Papers and Panels: We invite paper, presentation and panel proposals exploring any aspect of contract law, theory and policy. The topic range is deliberately broad to permit an as full as possible exploration of contractual themes. Past programs have thus included panels on “traditional” contracts topics (e.g. remedies, formation, defenses, etc), on contract-related subjects (insurance, consumer law, commercial law, dispute resolution, family law and restitution), and from a rich variety perspectives (historical, jurisprudential, empirical, institutional, law-and-economics, international and comparative contracting and others). We also solicit volunteers to serve as moderators or discussants for panels that are not “pre-packaged”.

Participation: As many presenters, moderators, and discussants will be accommodated as possible. Junior scholars and those working in non-U.S. legal systems in particular are encouraged to propose papers or panels and to volunteer to serve as discussants or moderators. Anyone wishing to attend to enjoy the conference without presenting or serving as a discussant or moderator is also welcome. There is no publication requirement for conference participants.

Proposal Submissions: To propose a presentation or panel, please email a title, brief description, and any supporting materials to Professor Eniola Akindemowo at, (copying please) by the (newly extended) deadline of Friday January 20, 2012. If your interest is to discuss or moderate, let us know (indicating your interests and availability) by Friday, January 20, 2012 also. All proposals received by the January 20 deadline will be evaluated and we will try to accommodate all requests to discuss or moderate. Proposals and requests received after the January 20 deadline will be entertained on a space-available-basis.
