This conference is intended to provide a space for immigration law professors with fewer than ten years in legal academia, or who are pre-tenured, to share and receive feedback on scholarship in a supportive setting.

More information about the conference, registration, and event details are forthcoming, please see the call below.

The steering committee for the 2023 Emerging Immigration Scholars Conference is now accepting proposals for works-in-progress or incubator ideas.

The 2023 Conference will take place June 15 and 16, 2023, at The George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC. If you wish to be considered for a works-in-progress or incubator session, please submit your proposal to [email protected]. Historically, "emerging" has been interpreted to include scholars with 10 years or less of experience in academia; however, we aim to be more inclusive this year, as this is the first gathering since before the pandemic.

We are also seeking discussants who will read and comment on the works-in-progress or incubator ideas. 

If you want to propose a work-in-progress: 

  • Please put "ImmProf WIP [Lastname]" as the subject line
  • Please submit an abstract of no more than one page, with a title

If you want to propose an incubator:

  • Please put "Incubator [Lastname]" as the subject line
  • Please submit a description of no more than one paragraph, with a title

If you would be willing to be a discussant:

  • Please email us by April 10 with a list of your areas of expertise

Possibility of virtual attendance for limited sessions:

  • We aim to hold this year's conference entirely in person. However, we might offer virtual options for certain sessions if there are many people who can only attend virtually. If you believe you would only be able to attend or present virtually, please add "VIRTUAL" to your email subject line (i.e., "ImmProf WIP [Lastname] - VIRTUAL.")

The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 10. We anticipate notifying accepted WIP or incubator proposals by April 24. Final papers will be due on June 1, 2023. Further information about the conference schedule and registration are forthcoming.

Please feel free to email [email protected] or contact any member of the conference steering committee directly with questions or concerns.
