I am pleased to share that my article “Identity Entrepreneurs,” which is forthcoming in the California Law Review later this year, was selected for presentation the Yale/Stanford/Harvard Junior Faculty Forum. This year the Forum will take place in at Yale Law School on June 26-27. I’m excited to attend and to share my work with top scholars in my field, as well as to meet the other junior scholars whose papers were selected. You can find more information about the Forum here.
I am pleased to help spread the word that the Denver University Law Review will be offering its second annual Emerging Scholar Award. Those who would like to be considered for the award may enter by submitting an article for publication.
