The subject of AALS Legislation & Law of the Political Process Section’s 2014 Annual Meeting program is “The Right to Vote: From Reynolds v. Sims to Shelby County, and Beyond.” The program will take place on Friday, January 3, 2014, from 1:30 to 3:15 P.M. in New York. The panel will include Professors Derek Muller, Rick Pildes, and Franita Tolson. Two additional panelists will be chosen through a call for papers, to be published in Election Law Journal.
Those interested in submitting a paper should submit an abstract by September 20, 2013, to section chair Dan Tokaji. Completed papers may also be submitted, though they are not required, by this date. Those selected to be panelists will be expected to submit completed papers by December 20, 2013. Election Law Journal prefers papers of 15,000 words or fewer, and will generally not publish papers over 20,000 words. Additional publication guidelines are available here.
We hope that readers of the blog and listserv will attend the program and that some of you will submit paper proposals. There will also be an open meeting to discuss the possible creation of a new AALS Election Law section, on Saturday, January 4 from 8:30 to 10:15 A.M.
