REMINDER: AALS Works-in-Progress Early Submission Date Approaching

As you head into the long holdiay weekend, please remember that proposals are now due for Works-in-Progress papers to be considered for publication in the Ohio State University Journal of Dispute Resolution. Here is the information about this year’s Works-in-Progress Conference and the opportunity to have your paper selected for publication in a special issue based on the conference. Those of us here at Ohio State hope you will join us for the conference!
The Association of American Law Schools’ Section on Dispute Resolution’s Sixth Annual Works-in-Progress Conference for scholars, professors, practitioners, and researchers involved in dispute resolution will be hosted by The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law on Nov. 9-10, 2012. The conference will be held in Columbus, Ohio — the state capital and an easily accessible and centrally located city with plenty of transportation, hotel, restaurant, and entertainment options for WIP Conference attendees.
The WIP Conference is an invaluable opportunity for scholars in the dispute resolution field to meet others from across the county who also are teaching and researching in dispute resolution. The WIP Conference is committed to enabling any interested alternative dispute resolution scholar to present on his or her topic, regardless of the subject or amount of research. The host of the conference, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, is home to one of the top ADR programs in the nation, as well as many prominent ADR faculty, such as professors Nancy Rogers, Joseph Stulberg, Sarah Cole, Ellen Deason, and Amy Cohen.
In addition to traditional works-in-progress presentations, faculty members may submit a well-developed proposal of approximately 1,000 words for a paper they would present at the conference. If selected for inclusion, these faculty members would submit a full draft of the paper before the conference, and junior faculty would be assigned an experienced faculty member in the field of ADR as a commenter at the conference. The revised, completed articles will be due in late January or early February (the exact date is not yet set) to begin the process for publication in the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, the official journal of the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution and the most cited journal in the field.
Initial 1,000-word proposals should be submitted next week for consideration to Authors will be notified of selection for inclusion by June 25. Faculty interested in speaking only should also email a brief description of their topics to this address. For further information, please feel free to contact Lindsay Nichols or Kristine Murphy at
