Call for Presentations

Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre, Ottawa, Ontario

Presenters are sought for inclusion in the agenda of the CAPSLE 2020 conference in Ottawa, Ontario from April 26-28, 2020. 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.

If your presentation proposal is accepted for inclusion in the conference schedule, an electronic copy of all of your presentation documents must be submitted to CAPSLE on or before March 31, 2020, so they may be made available to conference attendees as part of their conference packages.

Presentation documents (including PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and any other documents made available in support the presentation) will be considered for electronic publication in conference proceedings, or on the CAPSLE website, following the CAPSLE 2020 conference. Contributing authors retain the copyright of their presentation documents but royalties directed to CAPSLE from Access Copyright will be applied to the CAPSLE Bursary Fund.  

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: December 31, 2019 - extended to January 31, 2020.
