The University of Richmond School of Law invites submissions for the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Junior Faculty Forum. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 16 and Thursday, May 17, 2018 in Richmond, Virginia.


This workshop will bring together junior law scholars to present their scholarship in an informal collegial atmosphere.  The workshop is timed to allow participants to incorporate feedback on early ideas or projects before the summer.

Papers and works-in-progress are welcome at any stage of completion.  To maximize discussion and feedback, the author will provide a brief introduction to the paper, but the majority of the individual sessions will be devoted to collective discussion of the papers.

We will also have plenty of opportunities for networking and more casual discussions.

Richmond Law will provide all meals for those attending the workshop, but attendees will cover their own travel and lodging costs.


All untenured law faculty at law schools who have been teaching for ten years or less are eligible to participate. Those who do not currently hold a permanent or visiting faculty appointment, but expect to do so beginning in fall 2018 are also welcome.

Submission Procedure

Digital submissions will be accepted online. The University will open up spots to junior faculty at schools outside the region based upon availability of seats. We will maintain a waitlist after we reach capacity.
