SHOW THE WORLD HOW GOOD YOUR STUDENTS ARE AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO SHOW THEIR STUFF ON A NATIONAL STAGE. CONSIDER SPONSORING ONE OR MORE OF YOUR STUDENTS, HELPING THEM DEVELOP A PAPER TO PRESENT AT A STUDENT PAPER SESSION AT THE 2011 INTERNATIONAL ALSB MEETING IN NEW ORLEANS. IT WILL BE AN EXPERIENCE THAT NEITHER OF YOU WILL EVER FORGET.
For the eleventh year, undergraduate students will be eligible to submit a paper for possible presentation at the national meeting, and for possible publication in the ALSB Conference Proceedings. One paper will be selected as the Outstanding Student Paper, and that student will receive a plaque in honor of his or her work. Students whose papers are selected for publication in the Proceedings will receive a copy of the volume that includes their article. Students whose papers are selected for presentation, who cannot obtain funding from their institution, will receive a waiver of their conference registration fees.
Papers should be written in accordance with the guidelines established for papers submitted for publication in the Proceedings. All submissions are to be made electronically as follows:
Submit the above to Professor Denise S. Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 3, 2011.
All papers are blind reviewed by three members of the ALSB.
Acceptances (e-mail and s-mail) will be sent out by Friday, July 8, 2011. By submitting a paper, the student is agreeing that if his or her paper is accepted, he or she will present the paper at the national meeting. All presenters are invited to attend the conference including the awards presentation.
Please consider sponsoring a student. It is a rewarding experience for both students and their faculty sponsors, and it is the kind of activity that most schools support. Letters will be provided, upon request, to Deans acknowledging your efforts and accomplishments. Many faculty members, who have sponsored students, say that working with the student and seeing the final presentation has been one of the most rewarding activities they have undertaken as a faculty member. It’s a great addition to both of your resumes.
Papers in the area of damages will also be eligible for a possible cash award; courtesy of the Journal of Legal Economics. Be sure that your abstract indicates a damages theme to be considered.
If you have any questions, or just want some encouragement, please contact Professor Denise S. Smith, Eastern Illinois University, by email at email@example.com.
