New Legal Scholarship Network Journals on SSRN
Here are two recent additions to the Legal Scholarship Network on SSRN:
1. Law & Positive Political Theory Abstracts
Law & Positive Political Theory Abstracts is edited by Emerson H. Tiller, Professor of Law at Northwestern University, and Barry R. Weingast, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University.
Law & Positive Political Theory Abstracts provides a forum for the distribution of both completed works and works in progress on theoretical and empirical analyses of law and political institutions. The journal's scope is twofold. First, it covers areas of public decision making as they pertain to law: the production of legislation by Congress and the president, the interaction of the branches as it pertains to the courts, law and regulation.
Second, it encompasses the design of legal and regulatory institutions, how these institutions compete with each other for policy, and how individual actors within these institutions (e.g.,
judges, legislators, regulators) manipulate, or are constrained by, legal-institutional rules in their pursuit of legal and policy outcomes. Contributions from legal scholars, political scientists, and political economists are invited.
