USC Gould School of Law and Lewis & Clark Law School present the inaugural West Coast Bankruptcy Roundtable to be held February 3-4, 2022 in Los Angeles. Spearheaded by Robert Rasmussen, Michael Simkovic, and Samir Parikh, the Roundtable seeks to bring together experienced and junior scholars to discuss particularly noteworthy scholarship involving financial restructuring and business law. We seek scholars exploring diverse topics and will be interested in interdisciplinary perspectives.
The Roundtable invites the submission of papers. Selected participants will receive a $1,000 stipend and have the opportunity to workshop their papers in an intimate, collegial setting. Current attendees include Barry Adler (NYU), Ken Ayotte (Berkeley), Douglas Baird (Chicago), Bruce Bennett (Jones Day), Mitu Gulati (UVA), Yair Listokin (Yale), Bruce Markell (Northwestern), Ed Morrison (Columbia), Alan Schwartz (Yale), Jamie Sprayregen (Kirkland & Ellis), David Skeel (Penn), and Fred Tung (BU).
Papers will be selected through a blind review process. Scholars are invited to submit a 3 – 5 page overview of a proposed paper. Submissions may be an introduction, excerpt from a longer paper, or extended abstract. The submission should be anonymized, and – aside from general citations to the author’s previous articles – all references to the author should be removed.
Please submit proposals by September 7, 2021. Invitations will be issued via email by October 8th. Working drafts of papers must be available for circulation to participants by January 11, 2022.
Proposals – as well as questions and concerns – should be directed to Samir Parikh at email@example.com.
