Call for Submissions: International Law and Human Rights Scholarship Conference Deadline: Friday, February 15, 2013

The Institute for International Law and Justice and the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice are pleased to announce that submissions are now being accepted for the annual International Law and Human Rights Scholarship Conference, to be held at NYU School of Law on March 7-8, 2013. The conference, open to current NYU School of Law JD, LLM, and JSD students, will provide an opportunity for the presentation of papers, discussion, and debate on a broad set of international law and human rights issues. The purpose of the conference is to encourage the development of scholarship by giving students an opportunity to present papers and works-in-progress in a constructive and collaborative environment.

Students who submit the most promising papers will be selected to briefly present their work at the conference, and will receive comments from an interdisciplinary group of faculty members and practitioners, who will lead discussion and debate following presentations. In addition, one student will be awarded the new Center for Human Rights and Global Justice Emerging Scholar Essay Prize for the best paper on human rights.

Students writing in all areas of international law and/or human rights are invited to submit papers or works-in-progress by Friday, February 15, 2013. Papers received after the deadline will not be considered. Final papers will be due on March 1, 2013.

Although there is no strict page limit for submissions, selected papers should ideally not exceed 30 double-spaced pages.

Please email questions and submissions to Angelina Fisher.
