Submission Questions

What is the deadline to submit a session or abstract?

A: The deadline for submissions is November 8th, 2022.

When will acceptance letters for submissions go out?

A: Acceptance letters will go out early December, 2022.

I’m a session organizer. How do I complete a paper session submission?

A: If you are a session organizer, all individual presenters on your session need to first complete their individual abstract submission before you can submit your session. In the “add papers” tab,” this will take you to the area where you can then find the individual abstracts by searching submission number, title, author name, etc. of the submissions. It might be helpful to first gather all of this information from your individual presenters before starting.** If you need additional help, please email lsa@lawandsociety.org.

Can I propose a paper or session in a language other than English?

A: The default language for individual presentations will be English or Spanish.

What are the participation limitations?

A: Participants are limited to:

One participation as a Paper Presenter, Roundtable Participant, or Author.

Unlimited appearances as a Chair and/or Discussant on a panel, or an AMR reader.

Exemptions: Exempted additional appearances include as a participant on a Mini-Plenary, a Professional Development session, or other special event solicited and/or authorized by the Program Committee Chairs. For all other requests, there will be no exception to the rule.

Being a “non-presenting” paper co-author does not count as your participation if you do not sit on the session panel and present the paper (Select “non-presenter” when the co-author is added to papers).

It is expected that you will allow your name to be added to the program only in accordance with these limitations. You will be required to withdraw participations that exceed the limit.
