University of Wisconsin–Madison

Administrative Law New Scholarship Roundtable

June 9-11, 2019
University of Wisconsin Law school
Madison, Wi

The Roundtable is hosted each year by one of a rotating set of five schools—Yale University, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Ohio State University, and University of Wisconsin. The goal of the roundtable is to bring together a mix of emerging and established scholars to present new work on administrative law. 

Call for Papers


University of Wisconsin Law School is pleased to host the Fourth Annual Administrative Law New Scholarship Roundtable on June 9-11, 2019 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Participants will present their papers in small panel sessions designed to foster rich discussions with experts in the field and contribute to a vibrant Administrative Law community. Each panel will be introduced by a distinguished scholar who will then facilitate the discussion. Confirmed commentators currently include Jack Beermann (Boston), Kristin Hickman (Minnesota), Nicholas Parrillo (Yale), Eloise Pasachoff (Georgetown), Peter Shane (Ohio State), Kevin Stack (Vanderbilt), Glen Staszewski (Michigan State), and Wendy Wagner (Texas). 

Scholars wishing to present a paper at the Roundtable must submit a one-to-two-page abstract by Friday, March 15, 2019. Applicants should include their title, institutional affiliation, and number of years teaching in the academy. Preference will be given to those who have been teaching nine years or less in a tenure-track position. Abstracts should be sent to Miriam Seifter at miriam.seifter@wisc.edu; you may also contact her with questions about the Roundtable.

The Roundtable will provide meals for all participants. Participants must cover their own travel and lodging costs. We will reserve a block of reasonably priced rooms at a local hotel in advance of the Roundtable.
