Call for Presentations

Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Hotel Vancouver, British Columbia

Presenters are sought for inclusion in the agenda of the CAPSLE 2019 conference in Vancouver, British Columbia from May 5 – May 7, 2019. This annual conference attracts experienced educators, lawyers, academics and others interested in the relationship between education and law, and more specifically in the practical application of the law in the education context.


While all proposals for the presentations will be considered with interest, there are a few themes that are always of interest, as well as emerging contemporary themes:

We encourage presenters to promote opportunities for discussion and interaction between presenter(s) and participants.  

The program will include keynote/plenary sessions and approximately 35 concurrent sessions. Sessions are generally 75 minutes in duration. Individual, group or panel presentations are welcome. In keeping with CAPSLE’s mandate, we strongly encourage presenters to submit joint or panel presentations which will provide, for example, both union and management perspectives on any given topic. We also welcome submissions in either English or French, as well as those with a focus on post-secondary education.

Submitted papers will be considered for electronic publication in conference proceedings following the CAPSLE 2019 conference. Contributing authors to conference proceedings retain the copyright of their papers, but royalties directed to CAPSLE from Access Copyright will be applied to the CAPSLE Bursary Fund. 

An electronic copy of your paper will be required on or before March 31, 2019 for inclusion on the conference papers external drive.
