2013 Junior Faculty Workshop
On April 5-6, 2013, C-LEAF hosted its third 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. 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 many submissions for the Workshop representing junior scholars from around the nation and the globe. Twelve papers were selected for presentation at the Workshop. The authors of the selected papers (along with their school affiliation) are: Hilary Allen (Loyola); Peter Conti-Brown (Stanford); Diane Dick (Seattle); Kathryn Judge (Columbia); Benjamin Means (South Carolina); Haskell Murray (Regent); Elizabeth Pollman (Loyola); Georg Ringe (Oxford); Christina Sautter (Louisiana State); Nicola Sharpe (Illinois); A. Joseph Warburton (Syracuse); Del Wright (Valparaiso).
The Workshop also included senior scholars and practitioners who commented on each paper, followed by general discussion among all participants. The Workshop commentators were: Richard Booth (Villanova), William Bratton (Pennsylvania), Dorothy Brown (Emory), Karen Brown (GW), John Buchman (GW), Lisa Fairfax (GW), Theresa Gabaldon (GW), George Geis (Virginia), Anna Gelpern (American), Mark Gentile (Richards, Layton & Finger), Joan Heminway (Tennessee), Renee Jones (Boston College), Daniel Keating (Washington University), Don Langevoort (Georgetown), Jeffrey Lipshaw (Suffolk), Brett McDonnell (Minnesota), Stephen Meyer (Sullivan & Cromwell), Douglas Moll (Houston), Donna Nagy (Indiana), John Pollack (Schulte Roth & Zabel), Heidi Schooner (Catholic), Fred Tung (Boston University), and Art Wilmarth (GW).
