2016 Emerging Scholar Award
Exclusive Spring Publication Opportunity for Volume 94
The Denver Law Review is pleased to announce the beginning of the 2016 Emerging Scholar Award submission period. This exclusive opportunity is for all scholars who have received their J.D. as of March 1, 2016, not yet accepted a tenure-track teaching position, and not held full-time teaching positions for more than three years. The selected recipient will receive an award of $500 and publication in Issue 1, Volume 94, scheduled for early 2017.
We will accept submissions for the Emerging Scholar Award from April 4, 2016, until April 11, 2016. Our Articles Committee will review all submitted articles and respond to authors by April 21, 2016.
To participate, please email your article and CV to Andrew Brandes, Senior Articles Editor, at email@example.com with the subject line “Emerging Scholar Award.” This opportunity is open to articles that were previously submitted to the Denver Law Review, but we kindly ask that you resubmit your articles directly to Andrew Brandes in order to be eligible for the Emerging Scholar Award.
Please Note: By submitting your article during the defined entrance period, you agree to accept a binding offer for publication if an offer is extended.
The Emerging Scholar Award is now in its third year. The inaugural winner, Professor Goldburn P. Maynard, Jr., is currently an Assistant Professor at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and was recently selected for publication in the Fordham Law Review. Professor Goldburn noted that several schools inquired about the Emerging Scholar Award, as it has helped distinguish him from other academic candidates. Last year’s winner, Professor Kate Sablosky Elengold, recently accepted a position as a Clinical Associate Professor (appointment pending) at the UNC School of Law and will be publishing her article, Structural Subjugation: Theorizing Racialized Sexual Harassment in Housing, in Yale’s Journal of Law and Feminism later this spring. Professor Elengold credits winning the Emerging Scholar Award with giving her confidence in her scholarship and said it served as a springboard for future opportunities.
Now is an optimal time to publish with the Denver Law Review. In recent years, we have featured works by distinguished scholars including Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Professors Catharine MacKinnon, Kathryn Abrams, Katherine Franke, Evan Lee, and Mark Tushnet. We are excited to honor talented new scholars and look forward to reviewing your submissions.
