Write On! Law & Society Association

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) It's time to prepare forthe next annual meeting of the Law and Society Association, to be held May 28-31, 2009, in Denver, Colorado.
The just-released call for participation seeks proposals for papers or panels on the theme of The theme will be "Law, Power, and Inequality in the 21st Century." It's a topic that invites many avenues of inquiry; for instance:
► Has the use of law advanced or inhibited individual and group rights?
► Have new understandings of the intersection of social statuses changed our understanding of the role of law in producing or reducing inequality?
► What has been the role of new, non-state forms of governance in the production of inequality?
► Should law and social science provide the expertise to stimulate and inform the impending social agenda?
► Should social scientists and lawyers become allies to address these pressing problems, and if so, how should they collaborate?
Proposals are due December 8, 2008; details here and at Legal History Blog, whose founder, IntLawGrrls guest/alumna Mary L. Dudziak, serves on the Program Committee.
