Call for Papers -- 2024 Federalist Society Annual Faculty Conference

Faculty Division

The 2024 Federalist Society Annual Faculty Conference will take place January 4-5, 2024 in Washington D.C. The conference will again take place as part of the official AALS annual meeting (though we will continue to retain the same general format we have used in recent years). One need not register for the AALS conference, however, to participate in or attend the Federalist Society conference panels.

Below, please find our Annual Call for Papers:

(1) Works in Progress: We invite all faculty to submit Works in Progress to be considered for presentation during seven-minute time slots at one or more sessions set aside during the conference for this purpose.

(2) Young Legal Scholars Paper Competition: We invite paper submissions for the Young Legal Scholars Paper Competition, limited to unpublished papers by junior faculty members who have been in tenure-track positions for no more than 10 years. Young scholars who have not yet obtained their first academic appointments are also welcome to submit papers for consideration. These papers will be competitively selected and presented on a special panel. Each winner will have 12 minutes to present his or her paper, and will receive a prize of $1,500. (Co-authored submissions will be accepted if both authors satisfy the above-stated junior faculty criteria, but co-authors must share a single prize). Distinguished senior scholars will also offer commentary on the winning papers.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURES (for Works in Progress and Young Legal Scholar Paper Competition submissions):

If you are interested in making a presentation in either of these categories, please email your paper to by Friday, September 1, 2023, using the subject line "Faculty Conference Paper" and noting the category(ies) of presentation for which you are submitting. (If you are submitting for a work in progress slot, an abstract is sufficient). Winners will be notified in September.
