We invite graduate students and faculty members wishing to participate to submit an abstract with at most 400 words indicating the title of the paper, name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org . We kindly ask you to attach a brief description of yourself (upto 200 words), which will be included in the conference materials. The deadline for abstracts is 27 May 2011. Confirmation of acceptance of the abstract and participation in the conference will be sent out on or around 10 June, 2011.
The deadline for the working paper itself is the 2 September 2011. A format for the working paper will be made available on the website of the conference in due course. We encourage researchers to use this format. No limits on length or subject are imposed upon papers. Working papers are to be considered not yet definitive articles, but having an academic line of reasoning that is already structured and developed in such a way that the author feels comfortable defending it for a small audience of interested peers. Authors presenting working papers actively seek to acquire general and specific comments in order to improve their work.
As this conference is intended for graduate students and faculty members of the faculties involved and aimed at stimulating international oriented legal research, the organizers anticipate to accept all working papers from members of the associated faculties. Further details, including the working papers, the program of the conference, venue and travel details will be made available to participants on the website www.legalresearchentwork.eu.
For questions and queries either contact your local faculty representative in the organizing committee or contact Philipp Socha (Philip.Socha@jura.unigoettingen.de).
