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
