CFP: UNH Law 2018 “IP Scholarship Redux” Conference

Intellectual Property Scholarship Redux Conference

April 6–7, 2018
University of New Hampshire Law
Concord, NH

Basic Information


Any intellectual property scholar who has published a significant work of intellectual property law scholarship three or more years ago in a law review is invited to revisit this article at the Intellectual Property Scholarship Redux Conference! Pick a scholarly work you are very proud of, and convince conference participants that you were prescient! Or choose one you wish you’d written differently, and explain to conference participants where you went wrong. Did your piece get cited a lot? Were those citations positive? What response did the article get from law professor colleagues, and why? Have circumstances changed since your original publication that alters the way you analyze the problem? Did a judge “borrow” your analysis? We think this will be a really interesting conference. Help us make sure that it is!

We also invite you to submit a related short essay (10,000 words maximum) for publication consideration by IDEA: The Journal of the Franklin Pierce Center For Intellectual Property. We will need an edit-ready draft by June 15, 2018. Preference will be given to presentation proposals that include a related essay, which gives participating legal scholars a great opportunity to cite themselves repeatedly without shame!

The deadline for submitting Presentation Proposals is January 31, 2018. Selected Proposals will be announced shortly thereafter.

All proposals to present (and any questions you have) should be emailed to and

Reimbursement of reasonable travel and lodging expenses is available for intellectual property law scholars whose presentation proposals are accepted. And we always have great food at our conferences! We look forward to welcoming you to the University of New Hampshire School of Law in beautiful Concord, New Hampshire in April!
