Call-for-papers: “Gideon v. Wainwright & The Right to the Assistance of Counsel”

Call For Papers: Gideon v. Wainwright & The Right to the Assistance of Counsel

In the fall of 2013, the University of Iowa College of Law and the Iowa Law Review will hold a Symposium to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United States Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Gideon v. Wainwright (1963). The precise date of the symposium has not yet been decided, but it is expected that it will be held between the beginning of October and the middle of November. The symposium is inspired by a half-century of experience with the Warren Court’s groundbreaking decision to expand indigent defendants’ right to state-appointed legal assistance. Although the event has been prompted by Gideon’s ruling regarding appointed assistance, the planners anticipate and hope that the scholarly papers and presentations will address an wide array of subjects surrounding the scope, meaning, substance, or efficacy of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to retained or appointed legal assistance. Both legal and nonlegal (e.g., social science) scholarship related to these topics is welcome. Papers may be theoretical/analytical and/or doctrinal in character or may be based on empirical research about the effect of Gideon on the administration of criminal justice.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Those interested in participating should submit a one-paragraph summary of the paper they will present and a two-page abstract that outlines the structure and content of the paper in more detail. The deadline for submission of proposals is December 15, 2012. Rough manuscripts will be due two weeks before the date of the symposium. Final drafts of symposium papers, which will be published in the Iowa Law Review, will be due shortly after the symposium, by a deadline that will be established by editors of the Review. Papers should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words in length. Submissions may be mailed to:

Professor James J. Tomkovicz
University of Iowa College of Law
Iowa City, Iowa 52242

or may be sent by email to: james-tomkovicz@uiowa.edu. Inquiries about the symposium should be addressed to Professor Tomkovicz at the same email address.

Call-for-Papers and Conference Announcement: ” Law and Development at the Microlevel: From Microtrade to Current Issues in Law and Development”

Call-for-Papers and Conference Announcement: ” Law and Development at the Microlevel: From Microtrade to Current Issues in Law and Development.”  Conference will be at Seattle Univ. School of Law, on Dec. 10, 2011.  Abstracts are due June 30, 2011.

The conference is based on the concept paper: Y.S. Lee, Theoretical Basis and Regulatory Framework for Microtrade: Combining Volunteerism with International Trade Towards Poverty Elimination, 2 L. & Dev. Rev. 379 (2009).  Abstract below:

Poverty remains a serious global issue, and nearly half of the world’s populations are still living below the poverty line. International trade has been a vehicle for successful economic development for some developing economies in East Asia, including South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and more recently, China. With the success of their trade-based economic development policies and the export-driven development strategy, all of these countries escaped from poverty.

Can other developing countries duplicate this success and also bring their populations out of poverty? Some factors, including political stability, organized government support, educated workforce, availability of foreign markets, and financial resources such as foreign loans, have been considered essential for the success of this export-driven economic development strategy. These factors are not present in many developing countries, particularly least-developed countries (LDCs), thus making it difficult for them to pursue successful trade-based development policies to break the circle of poverty.

The author suggests microtrade, defined as international trade of small quantities of locally-produced products (LPPs) produced on a small scale, as an alternative way to provide those living in LDCs with income sufficient to reduce or eliminate poverty. Microtrade, unlike the export-driven development policies undertaken at a national level, is not based on the development of large-scale export industries, which cannot be initiated by many LDCs. This article provides a discussion of the theoretical basis of microtrade and its regulatory framework from the perspective of international trade law.

Call-for-Papers: AALS Sections on Poverty Law and Clinical Legal Education — “Theory and Praxis in Reducing Women’s Poverty”

The AALS sections on Poverty Law and Clinical Legal Education will sponsor a joint session at the upcoming 2012 AALS Annual Meeting, entitled Theory and Praxis in Reducing Women’s Poverty.  In collaboration with the American University Washington College of Law Journal of Gender, Social Policy and the Law, the joint session seeks papers for presentation and publication.  We have included a brief overview below.  Please see the attached AALS Poverty-Clinical Sections Call for Papers.

Association of American Law Schools (AALS) 2012 Annual Meeting, Joint Session of Sections on Poverty Law & Clinical Legal Education, “Theory and Praxis in Reducing Women’s Poverty”

Overview The joint session will focus on women in poverty, the role of advocacy in assisting poor women and in addressing the conditions that contribute to the gender and race of poverty.  Panelists will examine the reasons that women, especially from minority communities, are more likely to experience poverty; the negative consequences of poverty in their lives, and the legal and social systems that support the status quo.  Panelists will present innovative solutions that are vital to ending poverty among women. The legal academy has a unique opportunity to create and disseminate ideas and information about the legal systems and processes that perpetuate the low socio-economic status of women, particularly minorities.  In addition, we are well situated to address these issues through our teaching, especially in the clinical setting.   Topics to address include: General Causes of the Impoverishment of Women and the Role of the Law, Women and Work, Women, Relationships, Violence and Crime, Poverty, Women, and Lawyering, Poverty and the Academy.

This is an open call for papers from any perspective, concerning any aspect of the issue.  A committee composed of members from the Poverty Law and Clinical sections will choose approximately three (3) to four (4) presenters to present their papers at the AALS joint session and to publish their work n collaboration with the editorial board of the Journal of Gender, Social Policy and the Law.   A “blind” selection process will be used.  Papers chosen for presentation will be published in the summer 2012 of the Journal.  Besides those papers chosen for presentation, the Journal may be able to extend publication invitations to other papers submitted for the competition.

Submission Information

Deadlines:  Abstracts should be submitted by September 7, 2011.  Papers should be completed with footnotes by January 1, 2012, with minor revisions in light of conference comments to be completed by February 1, 2012

Abstracts of proposed papers should be no longer than 600 words and should be submitted by email attachment to the Journal of Gender, Social Policy and the Law at AALSConference.JGSPL@gmail.com.  Abstracts should not contain any information identifying the author, including invisible headers or footers, but should contain a title.  The body of the author’s email message should contain contact information and the title of the paper.

Notification:  Authors of papers chosen for presentation and publication will be notified by October 7, 2011.  Some papers not chosen for presentation may still be offered publication in the Journal.  Selected presenters will agree to present their papers only at this session during the annual meeting.

Final Paper Length and Format:  Papers should be roughly 10,000 words or less (25 or fewer printed pages). The Journal prefers papers to be submitted in Word format, but will accept papers utilizing other programs.   Papers should be submitted with the text double-spaced, preferably in 12-point typeface, with footnotes rather than endnotes.    Citations and article style should conform to the 19th edition of the Bluebook.
