Welcome to the Association for the Study of Law, Culture and the Humanities Conference Registration!


You are ready for part two to register for the conference itself. Your nonrefundable $35 membership fee will be deducted from the total that you will pay so you only have to pay the difference (the website will calculate the difference).
If you have not registered before you may pay for the membership and conference fees all at once.


Panels, roundtables, and paper proposals will not be accepted after October 15, 2013. A membership fee of $35 will be charged when you register your paper or panel for the conference.  The fee is refundable only if your panel or paper is not accepted by the program committee.  The fee will be applied to your total conference fee, which can be paid here after January 10, 2014.  The full conference fee includes a subscription to the Law, Culture, and Humanities Journal.  

Our full conference fees for 2013-14 are:  

$35 for Graduate Students; $85 for income less than $70,000; $125 for income of $70,000-$100,000; and $200 for income of over $100,000. 

You will also have the option of donating to our graduate student travel fund, which is used to support the graduate student workshop and to give travel stipends.  Information about applications for graduate student prizes (Mezey, Sarat) and travel stipends is on our website and facebook page.  http://www.law.syr.edu/academics/centers/lch/main.html

Your credit card company will automatically convert the fees into the currency of your home country and may charge a conversion fee.

Those not attending this year's conference may retain their journal subscription and membership for 2012-13 by paying $35 for graduate students or $75 for all others.  For information about this option, please contact our treasurer, Clifford Rosky at clifford.rosky@utah.law.edu.


1)  ATTENDEE ONLY:  If you are registering so you can attend the conference, but you do not plan to participate (as either a chair, discussant, paper presenter, or roundtable participant), please return to this link after January 10, 2014, at which time you'll be able to register as "attendee only."  Thank you!

2) PARTICIPATION LIMIT: The organizing committee has asked that participants limit themselves to presenting one individual paper and/or participating on one roundtable or book discussion. (In other words, you may give a paper AND participate in a roundtable or book discussion). ORGANIZING LIMIT: Each registrant may organize up to two panels and two roundtables/book discussion. There is no limit on serving as chairs/discussants – participants may be chairs/discussants for as many panels as they would like. Please note, as in the past, all panels and papers will be screened by the program committee and not all those proposed may be accepted.  Those proposing panels and papers that are NOT accepted will be notified by email by December 31, 2013.  Questions?  Please contact Panu Minkkinen, this year's program chair, at panu.minkkinen@helsinki.fi

3) INDIVIDUAL PAPER:   If you are proposing an individual paper, you will need to input a title and abstract before your registration will be accepted. Please have your title and abstract ready before you begin; you will not be able to save your work and return later.  Will you need computer or sound equipment?  If so, please check the box for a "smart room."

4) PART OF A PANEL ORGANIZED BY SOMEONE ELSE:  If you are part of a panel, roundtable, or book discussion that has already been registered by your chair or organizer, you will not need to input your abstract, just your personal information. Please register as "participating in a panel/roundtable organized by someone else." If you are a panel organizer or you are proposing an individual paper in addition to being part of a panel organized by someone else, there is no need to register twice.

5) PROPOSING A PANEL:   If you are proposing a panel, roundtable, or book discussion, please have all the information prepared before you begin; you will not be able to save your work and return later. You will need: a) the title and description of your panel, b) titles and abstracts of all the papers for all the individual panelists (abstracts are required for paper panels only, not for roundtables or book discussions), c) names, institutions, email addresses, and mail addresses of all the individual panelists (including you). You will also need to tell us if you require a room equipped with computer/audio/visual equipment (a "smart" room).

After registering the panel, please ask each of your panelists to register themselves. (They will not need to input their paper abstracts again, just their personal information. Unless each panelist registers separately, he or she will not receive email updates from the program committee chair or be given the opportunity for the on-line registration discount. Those participants who are already registered as "organizers" or "proposing individual papers" do not need to register twice).

If you are proposing an individual paper in addition to and separate from the panel(s) you are organizing and that individual paper is not part of a panel organized by someone else, please explain and type the title and abstract in the "comments" field at the end of the registration process.

The ideal size for a panel is usually three papers. (The registration site will allow you to include four, but if you don't have a fourth, please just type n/a into the required field.)  

6) If you registered for the conference last year and you are registering with the same email address this year, you will find that your profile is still in the system. You will be given a chance to update your personal information in your existing profile.

7) WHAT COMES NEXT.  After the submission process is closed on October 15th, the program committee will compile the program. As noted above, the program committee actively screens proposals and not all submissions will be accepted. The program committee will communicate any negative decisions to submitters by the end of December and will send the proposed program around via our listserv.  (You may subscribe to the listserv at our website).   All submitters who have had their proposals accepted, as well as “attendee only” registrants, will be able to pay conference registration fees online beginning January 10, 2014. We strongly encourage participants and attendees to use the online system for the payment of registration fees.  An additional fee of $10 will be charged to those who do not use the online payment system and pay their registration fees on-site at the conference.

FINAL REMINDER: You should log on to the registration system when you have all of the necessary information at hand. You will not be able to save your registration in progress and return to it at a later time for completion.
