past participants & selected works

The Family Law & Policy Program—in conjunction with other law faculties - is pleased to provide a forum for emerging scholars to hone and sharpen their ideas in family law and related subjects through the Harry Krause Emerging Family Law Scholars Workshop. The workshop is named for Professor Krause, who as a member of the Illinois law faculty, mentored many budding family law scholars across a half century of teaching. 

Selected scholars and where their resulting papers were published appear below for the 2015 and 2016 Workshops. We have co-hosted workshops with faculty from Notre Dame Law School, Chicago-Kent College of Law, Brooklyn Law School, the University of Minnesota School of Law, and the University of South Carolina School of Law. A call for papers is periodically issued for upcoming workshops. We welcome proposals from scholars working in fields, such as reproductive rights, biomedical ethics, children and the law, law and gender, and law and sexuality.  Please complete the Contact Me page if you would like to be alerted to this important opportunity or to serve as Program Faculty.
