Write On! National security @ AALS

(Write On! is an occasional item about notable calls for papers.) The Section on National Security Law of the Association of American Law Schools is calling for papers for AALS' 2010 Annual Meeting this January in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The papers will be presented at the Section's session entitled "Barbarians at the Gate (or Within?): New Developments in the Detention and Prosecution of Terrorist Suspects," to be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Friday, January 8, 2010.
The Section's call begins:
After waging the Global War on Terror for almost a decade, the United States has detained and/or prosecuted numerous foreign and domestic terrorist suspects in varied venues and under disjointed trial processes, depending upon the national status or foreign allegiance of the individual suspect, circumstances of capture, or applicability of the Geneva Conventions. The Obama Administration appears committed to bring order to the delivery of justice for those who find themselves detained and to regularize their treatment.
To aid the panel's exploration of these issus, the Section (on whose Executive Committee yours truly is proud to serve) seeks papers on any related subject. At least one panel member will be selected from the call. Submissions from junior scholars, minorities, and women are particularly encouraged. The selected paper will be published in the Journal of National Security Law & Policy, the Section’s peer-reviewed journal.
Deadline for submission of papers and/or abstracts of at least 750 words (in PDF or Word format, sent to Professor Mary-Rose Papandrea, Boston College, at maryrose.papandrea@bc.edu) is Friday, September 25, 2009. Any questions about the call itself should be directed to Section Chair, Professor Michael J. Kelly of Creighton University, at MichaelKelly@creighton.edu.
