The Section on Agency, Partnership, LLCs and Unincorporated Associations is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for the Section’s program on The Challenges and Opportunities of Exotic Hybrids—Series LLCs, Up-C’s and Master Limited Partnerships. In addition to featuring invited speakers, we seek speakers (and papers) that will be selected from this call. The AALS Sections on Taxation, Securities Regulation, and Business Associations are co-sponsoring this program.
Business entity structures continue to evolve as legal innovations mature into recognized business association forms. For example, variants on LLC and limited partnership forms can be used to maximize asset protection, leverage tax advantages, access capital markets, and achieve other business objectives. The program will introduce attendees to several “exotic” hybrid structures and discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with each. The program will be informative—inviting subject matter experts to educate audience members—and exploratory, critically examining the tax, governance, private ordering, securities, and policy implications of new entity structuring tools.
Any full-time faculty of an AALS member or fee-paid school who has written an unpublished paper, is working on a paper, or who is interested in writing a paper in this area is invited to submit a 1- or 2-page proposal by June 15, 2017. The Executive Committee of the Section on Agency, Partnership, LLCs and Unincorporated Associations, in consultation with co-sponsors, will review all submissions and select up to two papers by July 15, 2017.
All submissions and inquiries should be directed to Anne Tucker, Georgia State University College of Law, [email protected] .
