|LSAC Research Grants||The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) Research Grant Program funds research on a wide variety of topics related to the mission of LSAC. Specifically included in the program’s scope are projects investigating precursors to legal training, selection into law schools, legal education, and the legal profession. To be eligible for funding, a research project must inform either the process of selecting law students or legal education itself in a demonstrable way.
The program welcomes proposals for research proceeding from any of a variety of methodologies, a potentially broad range of topics, and varying time frames. Proposals will be judged on the importance of the questions addressed, their relevance to the mission of LSAC, the quality of the research designs, and the capacity of the researchers to carry out the project.
Application deadlines are February 1 and September 1.

|Call for Papers
Seventh International Junior Faculty Forum
Stanford Law School
|Currently sponsored by Stanford Law School, the International Junior Faculty Forum was established to stimulate the exchange of ideas and research, among younger scholars in the academy, from all parts of the world. We live today in a global community– in particular, a global legal community– and we would like to foster legal scholarship on a transnational basis. Scholars in different countries are often divided by barriers of time and space and also by barriers of different legal traditions and cultures. We hope that the Forum will be a step in the direction of surmounting these barriers. The papers at the 2013 forum were on a very wide range of subjects, from global investment policy to European and near Eastern controversies over religious freedom. The authors of these papers came from many countries, as did the senior scholars who chose the papers and commented on them. A wide range of views, techniques, and methodologies were represented.
Stanford Law School is pleased to announce plans for the seventh international forum. It will be held in Fall 2014, either in late September or early October (the exact date has not yet been fixed). It will take place at Stanford Law School, in Stanford, California.
In order to be considered for the 2014 International Junior Faculty Forum, authors must meet the following criteria:
Papers may be on any legally relevant subject. We particularly welcome work that is interdisciplinary. The papers can make use of any relevant approach: they can be quantitative or qualitative, sociological, anthropological, historical, or economic. Stanford would like to emphasize that it welcomes papers from junior scholars from all parts of the world. No country or group of countries has a monopoly of talent. Please note, however, that already published papers will not be eligible for consideration.
The first step is to submit an abstract of the proposed paper. We would like these to be no more than four (4) pages long; and to be in English. Tell us what you plan to do, lay out the major argument of the paper, say something about the methodology and what you think the paper’s contribution will be to scholarship. The due date for the abstracts is February 15, 2014, although earlier submissions are welcome. Please submit the abstract electronically Maria O’Neill, firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line, International Junior Faculty Forum. The abstract should contain the author’s name, home institution, and the title of the proposed paper. Please also send a current CV.
After the abstracts have been reviewed, by March 1 we will invite a number of junior scholars to submit full papers of no more than 15,000 words, electronically, in English, by May 31, 2014. Please include a word count for final papers. There is no fixed number of papers to be invited, but in the past years, up to 50 invitations have been issued, from among a much larger number of abstracts.
An international committee of legal scholars, who themselves represent many different countries, and many different styles and approaches, will review the papers. In the end, about ten of the papers will be chosen for full presentation at the conference. At the conference itself, two senior scholars will comment on each paper. After the remarks of the commentators, all of the participants, junior and senior alike, will have a chance to join in the discussion. One of the most valuable—and enjoyable—aspects of the Forum, in the opinion of many participants, has been the chance to meet junior and senior scholars, and to talk about your work and theirs.
Stanford will cover expenses of travel, including airfare, lodging, and food,
