Call-for-Papers: “The Constitution in an Era of Increasing Inequality” – AALS


AALS Sections on Constitutional Law and Poverty Law
Call for Papers – 2017 AALS Annual Meeting

The AALS Sections on Constitutional Law and Poverty Law invite paper submissions for their joint panel on “The Constitution in an Era of Increasing Inequality,” which has been scheduled for Friday, January 6 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. during the AALS Annual Meeting on January 3-7, 2017 in San Francisco.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION:

Income and wealth inequality between America’s upper-income families and its middle- and lower-income families are greater than they have been for decades. Because the Supreme Court has never recognized poor people as a suspect class, they do not receive special protection under the Constitution, yet their experiences in myriad areas—including education, housing, reproductive justice, and interactions with the civil and criminal justice systems—are fundamentally different from the experiences of those of even modest financial means.

Against this backdrop, the Sections on Constitutional Law and Poverty Law join to address the ways in which the Constitution might be brought to bear on these discrepancies through its treatment of laws, regulations, policies, and practices that disproportionately impact people who live in poverty. Panelists will explore the legal strategies that have been successful, revisit questions about the poor constituting a suspect or quasi-suspect class, and discuss how we might utilize constitutional law doctrine to address the causes and consequences of poverty.

ELIGIBILITY:

Full-time faculty members of AALS member law schools are eligible to submit papers. Faculty who are clinicians, pre-tenure, and/or of diverse backgrounds are especially encouraged to submit papers. N.B. All faculty presenters are responsible for paying their own annual meeting registration fee and hotel and travel expenses.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE:

One paper will be selected by a committee appointed by the Section of Constitutional Law Chair Lauren Sudeall Lucas, and Section of Poverty Law Chair Elect Marc-Tizoc González. While there are no requirements as to the form or length of proposals, substantial manuscript drafts will receive priority over mere abstracts, and the person selected to join the panel shall share her or his manuscript draft with the other panelists and moderator by December 1, 2016.

DEADLINE:

Please submit your paper by email, under the heading “Submission – 2017 AALS – The Constitution in an Era of Increasing Inequality,” and direct any inquiries, to lslucas@gsu.edu and mtgonzalez@stu.edu, on or before August 15, 2016. The author of the selected paper will be notified by September 15, 2016.

Call-for-Papers: Housing Affordability (and, for property folks, Works-in-Progress session)

AALS Property Law Section Call For Papers.  January 2017 — AALS Conference in San Francisco, CA

The AALS Property Law Section has two panels at the AALS Conference this year. If you would like to participate in either of these panels, please email a title and abstract of your proposed presentation to Ezra Rosser, erosser@wcl.american.edu, by June 1, 2016. The Property Section’s Executive Committee will select participants from the proposals received by that date.

(1) “Property and the Challenge of Housing Affordability” — Co‐Sponsored by State and Local Government Law, and Poverty Law Sections. 1:30-3:15 pm, Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017.

The main property law panel this year focuses on housing affordability, a topic that is appropriate for a conference being held in San Francisco. Two speakers will be chosen from this call-for-papers and they will join invited panelists Courtney Anderson (Georgia State), Steve Eagle (George Mason), Lisa Alexander (Texas A&M), and moderator Eduardo Peñalver (Cornell). Fordham Urban Law Journal has agreed to publish articles coming out of this panel and has asked that authors submit drafts to them by August 1, 2016, making this call ideally suited for those who already anticipate working on a housing affordability topic this summer. If you have any questions about this panel or the associated publication opportunity, please email erosser@wcl.american.edu.

(2) “Property Law Works in Progress” — 3:30-4:45 pm, Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2017.

This year, the AALS Property Law Section is organizing a works-in-progress session for junior (pre-tenure) scholars. This is meant to be an opportunity to present and get feedback on works that will not be published as of Jan. 2017 and that are still at a stage in which feedback could be valuable. In addition to having the opportunity to share work through the panel, selected presenters will be matched with a senior scholar who will provide written comments. There is no limitation as far as topic area for this panel and we look forward to receiving your proposal.
