The Dispute Resolution Interest Group (DRIG) of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) and the Lewis & Clark Law School are pleased to announce a workshop to discuss academic works-in-progress on international dispute resolution. The purpose of the workshop is to help authors develop draft articles for publication, so authors will be required to submit a working draft before the workshop takes place.
The workshop will take place at the Lewis & Clark Law School on the afternoon of November 10, 2017. All participants will be expected to attend the entire workshop and to be prepared to comment on the other papers, up to a maximum of three. We are unfortunately unable to fund travel. An optional dinner for participants will be held in the evening, although it is not known yet whether the dinner will be hosted or no-host. Authors will not give formal presentations of their work. Rather, each accepted paper will be assigned a discussant, who will briefly introduce the paper, provide feedback to the author, and lead a discussion among participants. This format permits lively discussion of ideas and writings that may be inchoate or not yet fully developed.
Submissions are welcome from academics and practitioners around the world. Junior professionals, including aspiring and untenured academics, are encouraged to submit proposals. Any topic related to international dispute resolution will be considered. Submissions must be works in progress and should not have been submitted for publication.
Abstracts up to 500 words may be submitted by 5pm Pacific Time, July 15, 2016 to this folder. (A Dropbox account is not necessary to submit documents.) Abstracts will be reviewed by DRIG Co-Chairs Perry Bechky and Jennifer Permesly, together with George Foster of Lewis & Clark Law School and Aaron Simowitz of Willamette University College of Law.
The authors whose proposals are chosen will be informed in mid-August. All participants must submit a substantial work in progress by October 21, 2017, which will be circulated in advance of the workshop to all participants. It is expected that this work will consist of a working draft paper at least 20 pages long. Participants whose drafts are longer than 30 pages will be asked to focus the attention of the discussants and other participants on key excerpts.
Please direct any questions to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
