Call for Submissions | American Psychological Association | Deadline December 1st

Division 41 Call for Papers: APA 2015

August 6 – August 9, 2015 | Toronto, Canada


Doing interesting work in the area of psychology and the law? Consider presenting your results at the 2015 American Psychological Association Convention in Toronto, Canada!

The American Psychology – Law Society invites presentations from any area that involves the intersection between psychology and the law (e.g., practice, teaching, research, policy, law, community outreach). Although all topics and formats will be considered, this year, we especially encourage the following:

  • practice-oriented proposals (e.g., skills development workshops, case studies)
  • translational proposals (e.g., translating research findings into clinical applications and practical or policy implications)

Important change for 2015 submission process: Given the extremely high volume of proposals submitted for the March AP-LS conference (over 600!) and the possibility that you may not be notified of your proposal status prior to the APA Dec. 1 deadline, we invite you submit a condensed version of the same proposal for APA (given APA’s 300-500 word limit). If your proposal is accepted for the March AP-LS conference, then we will automatically withdraw your submission for the August APA convention. In other words, we encourage you to submit the same proposal to both conferences to increase your chances of having your proposal accepted.

We will accept proposals in the following formats: symposia, individual papers, skill-building sessions, conversation hours, and posters.

Proposals must be submitted through the official APA convention website by December 1, 2014 (5pm EST):
