We received word from our friend Dakota Rudesill of a call for papers that is likely of interest to some Just Security readers, particularly junior faculty members in the legal academy. Here are the details:

Call for Papers: Junior Faculty Works in Progress, AALS Section on National Security Law

The American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Section on National Security Law invites abstracts for a junior faculty works in progress program at the January 2017 Annual Meeting. Papers may concern any matter related to national security law. Papers must be still in progress (for example, papers may be accepted for publication, but with revisions still underway) as of the time of the Annual Meeting in January 2017 in San Francisco, CA. Abstracts must be no longer than 1,000 words. Submissions can be accepted only from those affiliated with AALS member institutions. “Junior faculty” includes faculty who have been in a teaching position full-time for seven years or less as of the submission deadline. Submit your abstract by Friday, August 26, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. ET to Professor Dakota S. Rudesill, Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University, Rudesill.2@osu.edu, and to Professor Rachel VanLandingham, Southwestern Law School, rvanlandingham@swlaw.edu.
