Call for Proposals
CALT annual conference 2021
7-11 June, 2021
Virtually Hosted by:
Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia
We are pleased to release this Call for Proposals for the 2021 annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers (CALT). The conference will be held in a virtual online format throughout the week of 7 to 11 June (which is the week following the virtual gathering of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities).
The virtual platform for the conference will be provided by the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia. We gratefully acknowledge their participation and support.
Subject to the level of response to the Call for Proposals, and logistical factors, our tentative plan is to schedule 6 plenary sessions over the course of the week, with no more than two sessions of up to two hours duration on any one day.
The general focus of the conference will remain on legal education and pedagogy. We primarily invite proposals on two specific themes:
“Building Back Better: Lessons from Adapting to Teaching in the Pandemic”;
“Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism & Anti-Black Racism” – the theme of the cancelled 2020 conference.
We will also consider proposals that address non-theme topics and issues of current interest in legal education and law, but preference may be given to theme-related proposals and proposals that address teaching and learning.
We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Association of Law Teacher’s annual conference is resuming in 2021. The conference will be held in a virtual online format throughout the week of 7 to 11 June (which is the week following the virtual gathering of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities). A Call for Proposals will be issued soon. The CALT AGM will also be held during that week.
Subject to the level of response to the Call for Proposals, and logistical factors, our tentative plan is to schedule 6 plenary sessions over the course of the week, with no more than two sessions of up to two hours duration on any one day. The general focus of the conference will remain on legal education and pedagogy. We anticipate inviting general proposals with that focus, as well as inviting proposals engaging two specific themes: one theme focusing on lessons from adapting to teaching in the pandemic; the other reaching back to the theme of the cancelled 2020 conference, “Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism & Anti-Black Racism.”
Add your reaction
The Canadian Association of Law Teachers regrets to announce that it has decided to cancel its conference, previously scheduled for June 1 to 3, 2020 at Western University. We have also decided that we will not participate in the proposed online version of the Congress 2020 meeting. For a variety of reasons, including solidarity with the position of the Black Canadian Studies Association, we do not think it is in the interests of CALT to proceed with an online version.
We have not reached this decision lightly and we regret the disappointment and inconvenience that it may cause.
For anyone who has already registered for the conference, a full refund is available. You can find information about the process for cancellation in the email you received (from Congress) as confirmation of your registration.
