Call for Papers: SEALS Discussion Group: Family Law Scholarship (& Beyond)

We are seeking participants for a proposed discussion group for next year’s Southeastern Association of Law School’s conference, to be held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida from July 26-August 1, 2021.

Scholarship in family law is dynamic and often overlaps with other areas of the law, including civil rights, civil liberties, health law, feminist jurisprudence, queer theory, employment discrimination, and trusts and estates, among others. This discussion group will provide an opportunity for participants to discuss drafts of their papers that draw upon family law, including those that overlap with other areas of the law. Participants will have an opportunity to explore symmetries and differences between their various scholarly projects, as well as invite audience participation and discussion.

Questions about the discussion group may be directed to the co-organizers, Meghan Boone and Naomi Cahn.  Interested participants should send a one-page abstract or proposal to Meghan Boone at and Naomi Cahn at by October 29, 2020.  Consistent with the values of SEALS, the organizers will endeavor to make the group a diverse one and to welcome new and junior scholars. More information about the SEALS conference can be found at:
