Call for Papers -- 2015 Federalist Society Annual Faculty Conference

Faculty Division

The 2015 Federalist Society Annual Faculty Conference will take place on January 3-4, 2015 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.  We invite paper submissions for consideration for possible presentation at separate sessions:

First, we invite all faculty to submit works in progress to be considered for presentation during seven-minute time slots at one or more sessions set aside during the conference for this purpose.

Second, we invite paper submissions for the Young Legal Scholars Paper Competition, limited to unpublished papers by junior faculty members who have been teaching for no more than 7 years.  Young scholars who have not yet obtained their first academic appointments are also welcome to submit papers for consideration.  These papers will be competitively selected and presented on a special panel.  Each winner will have 12 minutes to present his or her paper, and will receive a prize of approximately $1,500.  There will also be commentary from a distinguished senior scholar on each of the papers.


If you are interested in making a presentation for any of the above-described events, please email your paper to by Friday, September 26, 2014, using the subject line "Faculty Conference Paper" and noting the category(ies) of presentation for which you are submitting.  (If you are submitting for a work in progress slot, an abstract is sufficient). Winners will be notified in late October or early November.
