Junior Faculty Workshop

2014 Junior Faculty Workshop

On February 7–8, 2014, C-LEAF hosted its fourth annual Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop and Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes. The Workshop supports and recognizes the work of young legal scholars in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, economics, finance, and securities, while promoting interaction among them and selected senior faculty and practitioners. By providing a forum for the exchange of creative ideas in these areas, C-LEAF also aims to encourage new and innovative scholarship.

In response to the Call for Papers, C-LEAF received over 80 paper submissions for the Workshop representing scholars who have been teaching for seven years or less from around the nation, as well as scholars from six international schools. After a blind review, twelve papers were chosen for presentation at the Workshop. The authors of the chosen papers were:

Felix Chang, University of Cincinnati College of Law
Olivia Dixon, The University of Sydney
Elisabeth de Fontenay, Duke University School of Law
Gregory Gilchrist, University of Toledo College of Law
Wulf Kaal, University of St. Thomas Law School
