4th Annual Midwest Family Law Consortium  (Academic)

Family Law in the 21st Century
The first decade of the 21st century has been an exciting time for family law scholars, teachers, and practitioners. Family law is more dynamic than ever, with changing social definitions of family and greater use of science and technology to create families. Themes that have emerged during this time likely will inform family law reforms in the coming decades. The Midwest Family Law Consortium seeks papers that explore these issues and other hot topics for the 4th annual conference, which will be held June 16 and 17, 2011, at Michigan State University College of Law.

While papers that address cutting-edge themes in family law are encouraged, all paper and panel proposals are welcomed. In addition, professors who wish to discuss techniques and insights concerning family law education are welcome to submit proposals for a teaching panel or panels.

Interested persons should submit a one-page proposal with the name, title, and institutional affiliation of the presenter(s) and a brief summary of the proposed presentation to Cynthia Lee Starnes, the Lizzie J. McSweeney Professor of Family Law at MSU College of Law, at Proposals submitted before January 31, 2011, will be given priority consideration.

The conference will begin with an opening reception and dinner on Thursday, June 16, 2011. Conference sessions will be held on Friday, June 17, and will conclude by 5:00 p.m.

The Midwest Family Law Consortium is an organization of law schools whose members collaborate to advance family law scholarship and teaching. Founded by the family law faculty of the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law, William Mitchell College of Law, and Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis, with additional sponsoring members Michigan State University College of Law and Washburn University School of Law, the consortium is open to any law school, but primarily serves the Midwest region.
