The following is a reminder from our section chair, Mark Sidel, that the deadline for paper proposals for either of our two AALS section meetings (in January, in New Orleans) is September 11, 2010, and September 5, 2009, respectively:
Below are the Nonprofit and Philanthropy Law Section's two calls for papers/presentations for our two programs at the AALS 2010 conference in New Orleans. We cordially invite proposals for participation in either of these sessions, particularly encouraging faculty who are traditionally less well-represented on AALS programs and younger faculty to send proposals.
Most of you have already received this on AALS lists, blogs, or by other means, but we wanted to make sure everyone on the Section's membership and 2009 and 2008 session attendance lists has these. Proposal due dates are listed for each session below.
Please put the two dates for our AALS 2010 conference programs in your calendar: Friday, January 8, 8:30 - 10:45 am; and Sunday, January 10, 9:00 - 10:45 am.
Best wishes to all.
I. Friday, January 8 8:30-10:45 am program
Rebuilding New Orleans, Transforming America: The Role of Nonprofit Organizations in New Orleans and National Recovery
The AALS Non-Profit and Philanthropy Law Section will hold a program during the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans on "Rebuilding New Orleans, Transforming America: The Role of Nonprofit Organizations in New Orleans and National Recovery." We plan to highlight and analyze the role of nonprofit and community development organizations in both recovery in New Orleans and recovery from the national economic crisis, and implications for legal regulation of these organizations. We invite interested colleagues to submit proposals for presentation on this program.
Please send proposals (a couple of paragraphs) by Friday, September 11 to Professor Mark Sidel, email@example.com, Section Chair, University of Iowa College of Law.
We particularly encourage faculty who are traditionally less well-represented on AALS programs and younger faculty to send proposals. Anyone with questions is welcome to contact Mark Sidel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
II, Sunday, January 10, 9:00 - 10:45 am program
Bridging the Gap between Non-Clinical and Clinical Teaching: Lessons from Nonprofit Law and Community Development Law
The AALS Non-Profit and Philanthropy Law Section will hold a program during the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans on "Bridging the Gap Between Non-Clinical and Clinical Teaching: Lessons from Community Development and Nonprofit Law." We invite interested clinical and non-clinical law teachers to submit short proposals (a couple of paragraphs only) for presentations on the panel, by email, by Saturday, September 5. Please send proposals to Professor Mark Sidel, email@example.com, Section Chair, University of Iowa College of Law.
The teaching of nonprofit law is growing rapidly in the United States. A survey underway by the AALS Non-Profit and Philanthropy Law Section shows well over 150 law faculty in this area teaching clinical and non-clinical courses. While both clinical work on nonprofit and community development law and non-clinical courses are increasing, there is little effective communication -- even within schools -- among clinical and non-clinical faculty working in this area. We invite clinical and non-clinical faculty to speak on an AALS panel that will chart the development of teaching in nonprofit law and community development law and discuss the potential for exchange, cooperation and collaboration between non-clinical and clinical teachers in this area. We seek participants with experience or interesting ideas in "bridging the gap" between clinical and non-clinical teaching in this area and emphasize that participants need not be in the midst of law review articles or planning to publish in this area.
