Welcome to the CSLSA 2014 Scholarship Conference

Registration for the 2014 Central States Law Schools Association Annual Scholarship Conference is closed.  To receive information about future meetings and events, please subscribe to our updates.

The Central States Law Schools Association (CSLSA) is a regional organization of law schools dedicated to providing a supportive forum for conversation and collaboration with respect to scholarly activity by law school academics. Our Annual Scholarship Conference is traditionally held in October at the institution of our current President. Although CSLSA is a regional organization, we invite law faculty from across the country to submit proposals to present papers or works in progress at the conference.

The purpose of CSLSA is to foster scholarly exchanges among law faculty across legal disciplines. Thus CSLSA invites junior and senior scholars from all fields of law to present. Articles recently published, articles accepted but not yet published, works in progress, and not yet formed ideas for scholarship or pedagogical innovation are welcome. The conference provides an opportunity for participants to network with colleagues, potential collaborators, and mentors from around the U.S. Junior scholars are offered a safe and supportive environment within which to present their work, and more senior scholars enjoy an opportunity to present new ideas in a less formal setting than is generally available.
