Penn Law Business and Financial Law Workshop for Junior Faculty

INSTITUTE FOR LAW & ECONOMICS (ILE)
AT
THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA CAREY LAW SCHOOL

INAUGURAL JUNIOR FACULTY BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL LAW WORKSHOP

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Institute for Law & Economics (ILE) at The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School is pleased to announce its inaugural Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop. The Workshop will be held in person on December 8, 2022 at Penn Law School, unless pandemic protocols require otherwise.

The Workshop supports and recognizes the work of untenured legal scholars in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, economics, finance and securities regulation and litigation, while promoting interaction among them and selected tenured faculty and practitioners. By providing a forum for the exchange of creative ideas in these areas, ILE also aims to encourage new and innovative scholarship in the business and financial arena.

Approximately 6-8 papers will be chosen from those submitted for presentation at the Workshop pursuant to this Call for Papers. At the Workshop, one or more senior scholars and practitioners will provide comments , followed by a general discussion of each paper among all participants. The Workshop audience will include invited untenured academics, faculty from Penn Law School, Penn’s Wharton School and other institutions, practitioners, and invited guests.

Scholars who hold a full time academic appointment but have not yet received tenure as of the submission date are cordially invited to submit summaries or drafts of their papers. Although work that is published work or is expected to be published by the date of the Workshop is not eligible for submission, submissions may include work that has been accepted for publication so long as such work is still capable of incorporating substantive edits. ILE will cover reasonable travel/ hotel and meal expenses of all selected presenters.

Those interested in presenting a paper at the Workshop should submit an abstract, summary or draft, preferably by e-mail, on or before September 1, 2022. Direct your submission, along with any inquiries related to the Workshop, to:

Professor Lisa M. Fairfax
University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School
3501 Sansom Street Philadelphia, PA 19104-6204
fairfaxl@law.upenn.edu

Submissions will be selected after review by the ILE co-directors . Authors of accepted submissions will be notified by October 7, 2022. Please feel free to pass this Call for Papers along to any colleagues who may be interested.
