Echo of Support for the Lifetime Achievement Award for Linda Rusch

Jeremy Telman over at the Contracts Prof Blog posted over there about the Lifetime Achievement Award that Linda Rusch will receive at the Ninth Annual International Conference on Contracts February 20-21, 2014 to be held at St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida.  I must echo Jeremy's praise of Linda's accomplishments.  Linda is a retired professor of law as of August 2012 and now is getting to enjoy the great outdoors. She was the inaugural holder of the Frederick N. and Barbara T. Curley Professor in Commercial Law at the Gonzaga University School fo Law from 2005-2010. She was also a co-director of the Law School’s Commercial Law Center.  And, of course, Professor Rusch has been involved in the revision of the Uniform Commercial Code in many capacities and is the recent past Chair of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association.  It is great to see her contributions to contract and commercial law recognized!
If you are considering presenting at the February Conference, the call for papers is currently OPEN. 
Papers and works-in-progress are welcome from those who study Contracts from any perspective, whether doctrinal, pedagogical, theoretical, empirical, historical, economic, critical, comparative, or interdisciplinary. Works that take an international or civil law approach are also welcome. Junior scholars are particularly encouraged to participate. Those interested in proposing and organizing panels (3-5 presenters) on specific themes are especially encouraged to do so. Individual submissions should be made by a brief abstract (one page is sufficient) of the paper or WIP that includes contact information for the author(s). The deadline is Monday, December 16, 2013 with proposals submitted earlier will be accepted on a rolling basis. Proposals submitted after the deadline will be accepted on a space-available basis. Submissions should be directed to: Professor Jennifer S. Martin (me) at jmartin@ stu.edu.
