Call for Papers - Fourth Conference on Law & Macroeconomics

 Fourth Conference on Law and Macroeconomics, 2021

The role of law as an instrument of macroeconomic policy through the Covid-19 pandemic, including as a means to provide social protection, has opened up new and exciting research opportunities. As we edge towards recovery, what is the role of law in creating a macroeconomy appropriate for a post-pandemic world?

We welcome submissions for an online virtual conference on October 27 and 28, 2021 that will continue to explore connections between law and macroeconomics. Papers may address the role of law, regulation, and institutions in:

  1. Monetary policy, both conventional and unconventional, including how it is impacted by payments systems, e.g., new platforms and technologies, as well as the effects and risks of the unwinding of QE;
  2. Financial regulatory policy, both domestic and international, including its effect on the economy, its role in crisis containment and resolution, access to capital, and other aspects of financial inclusion;
  3. Fiscal policy, especially its role in mitigating the effects and frequency of economic downturns, including the respective roles of federal, state, and local governments. We are particularly interested in papers that explore the combination of expansionary fiscal policy and loose monetary policy;
  4. Moderating recessions with other policy levers, including bankruptcy, contract, and property law; environmental, utility, and labor regulation; and investment and capital controls;
  5. ESG – which coalitions decide how to implement it, and what will it mean for investment?
  6. Law and data – whose data is it anyway?
  7. Sovereign debt, debt relief and forgiveness, and the possible consequences;
  8. Is the legal profession able to deliver for people in the twenty-first century economy?
  9. Legal strategies for reducing inequality, including policies affecting labor, competition, access to housing, healthcare, and other public services, as well as personal, corporate and public debt relief.

The submission deadline is September 15, 2021.  Conference website is here and complete call for papers here: Download Fourth Conference on Law & Macroeconomics

Call for Papers In Legal Strategy, Ethics, Leadership, and Compliance For Organizations

Dear BLPB readers:

CALL FOR PAPERS IN
LEGAL STRATEGY, ETHICS, LEADERSHIP, AND COMPLIANCE FOR ORGANIZATIONS

The Tobias Leadership Center at Indiana University, the Center for Legal Studies & Business Ethics in the Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University, and the American Business Law Journal to Cohost 2021 Symposium:

Ethical Leadership and Legal Strategies for Post-2020 Organizations

The Tobias Leadership Center at Indiana University, the Center for Legal Studies & Business Ethics at the Spears School of Business, and the American Business Law Journal (ABLJ) welcome submissions on legal strategy, ethics, leadership, and compliance issues that may advance positive organizational change following the multiple challenges of 2020: Public health issues, an economic recession, civil rights and social justice movements, changing working conditions, environmental concerns, innovation, and evolving legal norms. This theme is consistent with 2020 AACSB Standard 9. The ABLJ anticipates publishing a special issue devoted to the symposium theme.

The challenges facing organizations around the globe following the convergence of monumental events in 2020 require a renewed focus on ethical leadership and legal strategies that build structures and organizations to make a positive societal impact. Often times, the law is lagging in its ability to address new means of interacting and conducting business. Given the severity and reach of challenges in 2020, it is imperative to advance the legal and ethical research to meet the moment. This symposium hopes to generate a broad range of scholarship that develops options and opportunities for organizations to contribute positively to their communities and the world following the disruptions of 2020. Only submissions on the symposium theme will be considered for presentation. Interdisciplinary submissions are especially welcome.

AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills: Call for Papers – EXTENDED DEADLINE

Call for Papers – EXTENDED DEADLINE

AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills

The New Public Interest in Private Markets: Transactional Innovation for Promoting Inclusion

January 5-9, 2021, AALS Annual Meeting


The AALS Section on Transactional Law and Skills is pleased to announce a program titled The New Public Interest in Private Markets: Transactional Innovation for Promoting Inclusion during the 2021 AALS Annual Meeting, which will be held virtually. This session will explore how recent developments in corporate and transactional practice address issues of bias in corporate governance and the workplace, with examples ranging from Weinstein representations & warranties in M&A agreements to California’s Women on Boards statute to inclusion riders in the entertainment industry. These developments raise immediate questions of whether public policy goals of achieving greater inclusivity are being met, and they also shed light on perennial debates about the role public law and private ordering play in spurring social innovation.

In addition to paper presentations, the program will feature a panel focusing on how to incorporate concepts, issues, and discussions of equity and inclusivity across the transactional curriculum, including in clinics and other experiential courses, as well as in doctrinal courses.

FORMAT: Scholars whose papers are selected will provide a presentation of their paper, followed by commentary and audience Q&A.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Scholars who are interested in participating in the program should send a draft or summary of at least three pages to Professor Matt Jennejohn at jennejohnm@law.byu.edu on or before Friday, September 25, 2020. The subject line of the email should read: “Submission—AALS Transactional Law and Skills Section Program.”

Scholars whose papers are selected for the program will need to submit a draft by December 16, 2020.

Pursuant to AALS rules, faculty at fee-paid non-member law schools, foreign faculty, adjunct and visiting faculty (without a full-time position at an AALS member law school), graduate students, fellows, and non-law school faculty are not eligible to submit. Please note that all presenters at the program are responsible for paying their own annual meeting registration fees and travel expenses.

Call for Submissions: Ohio State Business Law Journal

Attention BLPB readers:

The Ohio State Business Law Journal (OSBLJ) is a student-run and student-edited journal that provides a forum for quality, cutting edge articles related to business and corporate law. We publish bi-annually: one edition on scholarly articles and the other edition on student note written by our journal members. We are currently accepting submissions from legal scholars for our scholarly edition, which will deal with the question of whether the business legal structure hamper coping with crises.

We believe that in addition to the relevancy of this topic to the current times, this edition will tie in nicely with the theme of our upcoming symposium in March 2021, “Confronting Crises: Preparing for the Unexpected.”  In this symposium, we will have various panels, including: whether the government should take ownership of failing companies; contracting for the worst case scenario; effects of government response to crises; and tax law—the impact of government intervention and the effects it will have on businesses.

We are currently accepting submissions via Scholastica, as well as submissions via email. Any questions, as well as submissions, may be emailed to Mayu Nakano at nakano.17@osu.edu. We look forward to hearing from you!

2021 AALS Annual Meeting - Section on Securities Regulation Calls for Papers

The AALS Section on Securities Regulation distributed two calls for papers earlier today.
Both are included below.

+++++

AALS Call for Papers:
What Can Securities Regulation Contribute to
Environmental Law, and Vice Versa?

The AALS Sections on Environmental Law and Securities Regulation are delighted to present a joint session at the 2021 AALS Annual Meeting, titled “What Can Securities Regulation Contribute to Environmental Law, and Vice Versa?” We are awaiting final scheduling information from AALS, but we anticipate receiving a three-hour joint program slot. We are planning an innovative format that will include short (5-7 minute) paper presentations in plenary session, followed by collaboration in “table discussion” groups.

The political vicissitudes of environmental policy in recent years have led to increased focus on the potential of private mechanisms to achieve environmental results that had traditionally been sought by government action. At the same time, investors and market regulators have become increasingly aware of the need for corporations to grapple with environmental risks, particularly with respect to global climate disruption.

This joint session will bring together leading scholars from the fields of environmental and securities law to discuss the reciprocal influences that environmental and securities law exert on each other, including a discussion of the following questions: How do the goals of securities regulation intersect with environmental policy? Are the securities laws an effective means of advancing environmental policy? What are the regulatory implications, both for securities regulation and environmental law, of this intersection? What are innovative investors and companies doing in response to the risks of climate change?

We invite papers that explore these questions from a diversity of perspectives, both theoretical and applied. The authors of the selected papers will present short, TED-style talks at the 2021 Annual Meeting and engage in dialogue with each other and attendees about the ideas presented.

By August 15, 2020, please send your submission to Professor Steve Gold at stgold@law.rutgers.edu and Professor Wendy Couture at wgcouture@uidaho.edu. We welcome submissions at any stage of development, although preference may be given to more fully developed papers over abstracts and paper proposals. The authors of the selected papers will be notified by September 15, 2020. 

The Call for Paper presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee and travel expenses.  Please note that AALS anticipates that the Annual Meeting will proceed in person as planned in San Francisco, (https://am.aals.org/), and the theme is The Power of Words.

AALS Call for Papers:
Emerging Voices in Securities Regulation

The AALS Section on Securities Regulation is delighted to bring together junior and senior securities regulation scholars for the purpose of providing junior scholars feedback on their scholarship and helping them prepare their work for submission for publication. Junior scholars’ presentations of their drafts will be followed by comments from senior scholars and further audience discussion.

If you would like to present your draft as a junior scholar, by August 15, 2020, please send your draft to Professor Wendy Couture at wgcouture@uidaho.edu. We welcome submissions at any stage of development, although preference may be given to more fully developed papers over abstracts and paper proposals. The authors of the selected papers will be notified by September 15, 2020. 

If you would like to volunteer to provide feedback as a more senior scholar, please let Professor Couture know, at wgcouture@uidaho.edu, by August 15, 2020. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

The Call for Paper presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee and travel expenses.  Please note that AALS anticipates that the Annual Meeting will proceed in person as planned in San Francisco, (https://am.aals.org/), and the theme is The Power of Words.

2021 AALS Annual Meeting - Section on Business Associations Additional Call for Papers

Yesterday, I posted the AALS Section on Business Associations Call for Papers for the New Voices in Business Law program.  Today, I am posting the section's general call for papers, which focuses on a very salient topic: Corporate Boards in the Age of COVID-19.  There certainly is a lot that we can say about that from the advisory, compliance, and litigation (prevention and management) angles.

+     +     +

Call for Papers for the
Section on Business Associations Program on
Corporate Boards in the Age of COVID-19

2021 AALS Annual Meeting

The AALS Section on Business Associations is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its program at the 2021 AALS Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California. The topic is Corporate Boards in the Age of COVID-19. Up to three presenters will be selected for the section’s program.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put corporate boards under tremendous stress. In the midst of unprecedented financial and operational challenges, boards must comply with legal obligations that are often complex, uncertain, and contested. This panel will explore the impact of COVID-19 on the corporate board. How should boards exercise their oversight and disclosure responsibilities during these times? Should boards reevaluate the corporate purpose, especially considering the increased vulnerability of employees and other stakeholders? Should boards rethink their dividends and stock buyback policies? And, as market instability continues, how should boards approach planned transactions and use defensive mechanisms? We hope to facilitate a robust conversation that connects corporate law theory to the immediate challenges facing corporate boards.

Submission Information:

Please submit an abstract or a draft of an unpublished paper to Jessica Ericsson, jerickso@richmond.edu, on or before August 3, 2020. Authors should include their name and contact information in their submission email but remove all identifying information from their submission.

Papers will be selected after review by members of the Executive Committee of the Section. Authors of selected papers will be notified by August 28, 2020. Presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee, hotel, and travel expenses.

Please direct any questions to Jessica Erickson, University of Richmond School of Law, at jerickso@richmond.edu.

Call for Papers - Virginia Sports and Entertainment Law Journal

I am publishing this call for papers below with permission from the editor.

In 2018, I published with the Virginia Sports & Entertainment Law Journal (out of UVA), and I think it is fair to say that they are a leader in this specialty area. 

-----

My name is Blake Steinberg and I am the current Editor-in-Chief of the Virginia Sports & Entertainment Law Journal at UVA Law. I am reaching out to you because you have published with our Journal in the past. We are currently looking for submissions, and would be glad to review any piece that you hope to publish.

Although we received a large number of student notes this year, our Journal has received fewer pieces from professors and practitioners than we would like. If you are a professor or practitioner who focuses on legal issues arising in the sports or entertainment industries, we would be especially interested in reviewing a submission from you.

In the past, published pieces have addressed topics such as video game licensing, basketball arena and team owners’ tort liability for spectator injuries, negotiations over cell phone ringtone revenue, and copyright law's treatment of entertainers as compared to its treatment of other types of authors.

To submit a piece, please send an email to me at bjs4me@virginia.edu, with a Word document version of your submission along with your resume. If you know of anyone else who might be interested in publishing with our Journal, feel free to forward this email to them as well.

2020 National Business Law Scholars Conference - CFP Deadline Extended

This follows on my post from last week regarding the 2020 National Business Law Scholars Conference, scheduled for June 18-19, 2020 at The University of Tennessee College of Law.  The planning committee conferred a few days ago and, in recognition of the current state of affairs, determined to extend the deadline for paper submissions to Friday, April 24.  We hope that this takes some pressure off faculty who would like to submit a paper for inclusion in the conference but are wrestling with new challenges and stressors in transitioning to teaching online.

Again, please contact me at jheminwa@tennessee.edu or any other member of the planing committee listed below with questions.  Eric Chaffee handles paper submissions and scheduling.  Accordingly, he is the best person to contact if you need to address specific submission issues or scheduling constraints.  His email address is eric.chaffee@utoledo.edu.

2020 National Business Law Scholars Conference - CFP Deadline in Two Weeks!

Thanks to all who have been registering and submitting papers for this year's National Business Law Scholars Conference, scheduled for June 18-19 at The University of Tennessee College of Law.  I posted on the conference last month.  The conference planning committee, like so many others, is monitoring the COVID-19 situation.  At present, the conference is still a "go," and we remain excited about it!

The deadline for paper submissions is March 31.  We hope that you are inspired to submit.  The conference website can be found here.  The planning committee understands that many (most?) of us are currently subject to institutionally imposed travel restrictions.  Please know that if you submit a paper and are unable to attend due to travel restrictions, you may withdraw your paper.

Comments can be left here, or feel free to email me or any other planning committee member for more information.  Paper submission questions are best directed to Eric Chaffee.  The planning committee members are listed again below, for your convenience.
