Postponement of Administrative Law New Scholarship Roundtable; Call for Papers Deadline Now May 15, by Nicholas Parrillo

The Administrative Law New Scholarship Roundtable was originally scheduled for this coming June 8-9 at Yale Law School.  In light of the uncertainty created by COVID-19, and especially because travel arrangements for the June 8-9 dates would need to be made soon, we as the organizing committee have decided to postpone the event.  We are hopeful that it can be rescheduled for the late summer or early fall, and we will announce those dates if and when we think we can responsibly plan on them.  Because travel reservations for a postponed conference do not need to be made until later this spring, we have decided to extend the deadline to submit abstracts until Friday, May 15

We greatly appreciate the interest shown by authors who have submitted abstracts thus far.  Per our communication earlier today with those authors: you will automatically be considered for the conference at its to-be-determined new date unless we hear otherwise from you.  Of course we understand if people end up having conflicts with the dates to be selected for the conference.  We will, as soon as possible, announce those dates publicly, and also individually to all authors who have submitted abstracts. 

If COVID-19 does not allow us to gather in late summer or early fall, we will cancel this year’s Roundtable and resume it, with a new call for papers, in 2021.

To reiterate the basics of the call for papers: The Roundtable is an event at which approximately twelve authors will workshop their papers in a series of individual sessions, one for each paper, over the course of a day and a half. Each paper will be introduced by a distinguished scholar who will comment on the work and then facilitate discussion of it with all participants.  Scholars wishing to participate in the Roundtable and present a paper should submit a one-to-two-page abstract by the new deadline of Friday, May 15.  Applicants should include their title, institutional affiliation, and number of years teaching in the academy. Scholars holding fellowships or visiting assistant professorships are welcome to submit. Preference will be given to those with less than ten years of tenure-track teaching. Abstracts should be emailed to Nicholas Parrillo at You may also contact him with any questions about the event. The Roundtable will provide meals for all participants. Participants must cover their own travel and lodging costs. We will reserve a block of reasonably priced rooms at a local hotel in advance of the Roundtable.
