Call for Papers - ABLJ 2024 Special Issue: Doing Business in a Disaster Economy

Dear BLPB Readers:

"In 2022, the United States experienced 26 natural disasters, more than any other country in the
world. One storm alone, Hurricane Ian, cost the economy more than $110 billion dollars. Beyond
flooding, drought, and wildfire, in recent years the world has also seen the previously
unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple areas of human conflict,
including the war in Ukraine, which has disrupted global food supply and upended life for
millions of people. Each of these disasters brings a unique mix of impact to local businesses,
human lives, and the global economy.

What should businesses, regulators, lawmakers, and attorneys do to prepare for life in an
economy in which disasters are both more likely to strike, due to climate change, and more likely
to have profound multinational impacts, due to globalization? The American Business Law
Journal (ABLJ) seek manuscripts that address this question.

The “Doing Business in a Disaster Economy” special issue will take a broad perspective.
Submissions may cover a wide variety of topics addressing legal planning and regulatory
mechanisms for addressing disasters–before, during, and after the event. Paper topics may
include but are not limited to:
• Insolvency and financial aid, particularly for SMEs post-disaster.
• Meeting health care needs, particularly in underserved or rural areas.
• Addressing the impacts of systemic racism and ethnic bias on disaster preparedness and
the impact of disasters on communities of marginalized populations.
• Economic programs related to unemployment, loan repayment, or essential industry
protection or rebuilding.
• Land use and other environmental programs intended to mitigate predicted impacts of
natural disasters on local and national economies.
• The role of digital assets in a disaster economy.
• Evaluating previous relief programs (such as the American Rescue Plan) and making
recommendations for future programs.
• Valuation of property and insurance issues in high-risk areas.

Submissions incorporating interdisciplinary approaches and/or comparative and international law
are welcome, as are submissions from researchers based outside of North America. It is expected
that four papers will be accepted for the special issue; papers not accepted may be resubmitted to
the ABLJ for publication outside of the special issue.

Articles selected for the special issue will be published in Issue 4, Volume 61 (2024), of the
ABLJ. Submissions must be received by March 1, 2024 for consideration. Submissions should
be made to [email protected]. Authors will be notified of their acceptance by March 15,
2024."

8th Biennial Conference on the Teaching of Transactional Law and Skills

Emory2023(Announcement)

8th Biennial Conference on the Teaching of Transactional Law and Skills

PREPARING FUTURE LAWYERS TO DRAFT CONTRACTS, DO DEALS, AND TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS

October 6-7, 2023 | Atlanta, GA

______________

Call for Proposals and Nominations for
Tina L. Stark
Teaching Excellence Award

Call for Proposals

Emory’s Center for Transactional Law and Practice is delighted to open the Call for Proposals for its eighth biennial conference on the teaching of transactional law and skills. We welcome your proposals related to our theme – “Preparing Future Lawyers to Draft Contracts, Do Deals, and Take Care of Business.” 

By design, our theme is broad.  We see it as encompassing everything from how to teach the nuts-and-bolts of contract drafting through how to help students understand and advance a deal.  In addition, we would like to know what you are doing to familiarize students with business and finance.  On a more abstract level, consider leading a discussion about how to define the core values and guiding principles foundational to a successful transactional law practice. Or reporting your success encouraging students to engage in self-reflection about their professional identities as deal lawyers. 

Each session will be 60 minutes long.  Given this time limitation, each session will be limited to one or two presenters who have submitted one proposal on a single topic. In other words, we will not split a session between two proposals or create panels, as we have done in the past. As a result, and in the interest of assuring that each presenter gets an opportunity to shine, we will likely accept fewer proposals.

 

We will begin accepting proposals on Thursday, June 15, 2023.  A link to the submission portal will be provided on June 15th.  The deadline is 5:00 p.m. EST on August 15th.

Join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday evening, October 5, for a welcome reception in the Hotel bar.  The conference sessions will begin on Friday, October 6, at 9:00 a.m., and end on Saturday, October 7, at 2:00 p.m.  

On Friday evening, we invite you to attend an optional dinner at the Hotel.  As part of the festivities at the dinner, we will announce the winner of the 2023 Tina L. Stark Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Transactional Law and Skills. 

Call for Nominations – Tina L. Stark Teaching Excellence Award

Emory’s Center for Transactional Law and Practice is delighted to open its Call for Nominations for the 2023 Tina L. Stark Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Transactional Law and Skills.  Think about nominating yourself or someone else to honor their work as a transactional law and skills educator. For more information about the Award, review the announcement here.

 

We will begin accepting nominations on Thursday, June 15, 2023.  A link to the nomination submission portal will be provided on June 15th.  The nomination deadline is 5:00 p.m. EST on August 15th.

Registration for Conference/Optional Tina L. Stark Award Dinner

Both attendees and presenters must register for the Conference and pay the appropriate registration fee:  $250 (general); $200 (adjunct professor and new professor).  Note: A new professor is someone in their first three years of teaching.

Call for Papers - 6th Conference on Law and Macroeconomics

Dear BLPB Readers:

Below is an excerpt from the call for papers (complete call here) for the 6th Conference on Law and Macroeconomics to be held on November 2-3, 2023 at Tulane Law School.  The deadline for submissions for consideration is August 1, 2023.

"The past year has seen a dramatic increase in economic, financial, social, and political turmoil worldwide. Policy responses to price instability have in turn generated predictable but unforeseen collateral crises and vulnerabilities, including bank failures, asset market turmoil, and rising risks of domestic, regional, and global recession, which require their own policy responses. Climate, public health, and migration challenges persist and continue to reflect vast economic disparities.

These developments reinforce the imperative of research at the intersection of law and macroeconomics, even as they recast and sharpen our understanding of the field. They form the background for the  Sixth Conference on Law and Macroeconomics.

The conference will be held on November 2-3, 2023, at Tulane Law School in New Orleans, Louisiana. We welcome submissions for papers that address the following topics, among others:

  1. Monetary policy and institutions, including comparative approaches to achieving price stability;
  2. Fiscal policy, including legal and regulatory tools to mitigate the effects and frequency of economic downturns, and their interaction with monetary and financial regulatory policies;
  3. Financial regulatory policy, including its distributive effects and interactions with fiscal and monetary policies;
  4. Using tools from antitrust, bankruptcy, contract, and property law; environmental, utility, and labor regulation; and investment and capital controls to reduce the incidence and mitigate the effects of economic downturns and fight inflation;
  5. Legal and macroeconomic policy tools to manage the climate crisis;
  6. The promise and perils of ESG investing, including its actual and potential macroeconomic impact and institutional design;
  7. The interaction among law, macroeconomics, and technology, including the role of big data;
  8. Sovereign debt vulnerabilities, including effect of geopolitical realignment, the climate crisis, looming food and fuel shortages, and the efficacy of old public and private law tools in the new macroeconomic context;
  9. Lessons from the pandemic for using the law and macroeconomic policy to address causes and consequences of inequality."

Call for Papers - Wharton Conference on Liquidity and Financial Fragility

Dear BLPB Readers:

Below is an excerpt from the call for papers for the upcoming Wharton Conference on Liquidity and Financial Fragility

"Liquidity and financial fragility concerns have captured the attention of financial market participants, macroeconomists, and policymakers in recent years. The pandemic featured unprecedented liquidity dry-up and fragility in financial markets, followed by massive policy interventions and inflationary pressures not seen in decades. The collapses of the Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse revealed neglected risks and have forced depositors and investors to rethink some of their decisions. Fifteen years after the global financial crisis, the financial system does not appear to be safer and the need to better understand the sources and consequences of financial fragility remains high.

With this goal, we are resuming the Wharton Conference on Liquidity and Financial Fragility, following the success of the eight editions that took place before the pandemic. The next edition, hosted by the Wharton Initiative on Financial Policy and Regulation (WIFPR), will take place at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) starting on the morning of Friday, October 6, 2023, and ending in the afternoon of Saturday, October 7, 2023. Details of previous conferences can be found on the conference website: https://wifpr.wharton.upenn.edu/wharton-liquidity-conference/"

The complete call for papers is here.  The deadline to submit papers for consideration is July 1, 2023.

Several folks indicated they were a bit jammed for time to make the April 7 deadline for submissions.  After consulting with our master scheduler, Eric Chaffee, we have determined to leave submissions open until April 28th.  We are in the process of changing the conference website to update the submission deadline, but the submission link (which generates an email to Eric) is still open.

In the coming weeks, the conference website will be updated to include information on lodging (we have arrangements with several local hotels) and transportation.  In addition to Knoxville's local airport, McGee-Tyson (TYS), flights are available to a number of local airports (Nashville, Chattanooga, and Tri-Cities) at which one can rent a car and from which one can drive to Knoxville.  The State of Tennessee is beautiful and fun.  I would be delighted to offer touring advice to anyone who would like to take some vacation time around the conference.

With the extended submission date, we hope that a few more of you will be in a position to submit work to present at the conference.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Eric for any desired guidance in that regard, especially if you have never submitted to the conference before.  We are happy to help.

Succession: DePaul Law Review Call for Papers

The DePaul Law Review will devote the third issue of its 73rd volume (slated for publication in Spring 2024) to a symposium addressing the Emmy-winning scripted drama Succession from a legal and pedagogical point of view. The aim of this special issue is to collect in one place the insights of a variety of faculty members with different legal subject-matter expertise, as a resource for all who are interested in the use of this award-winning work for the teaching, practice, and study of law. The DePaul Law Review has already secured the participation of a number of distinguished scholars.

The DePaul Law Review invites proposals from others for two to four additional contributions to be included in this special issue. Proposals for a contribution of between 5,000 and 10,000 words are welcome from all who teach any area of law. (The print symposium will be accompanied by simultaneous online publication with live hyperlinks, allowing readers to access video links if the author desires.)

Potential contributions to the special issue might take a variety of forms. For example, these essays might:

• explore the legal implications of various plotlines through a variety of doctrinal lenses (e.g., mergers and acquisitions, wills and trusts, corporate law, employment law, criminal law);

• share classroom techniques for using Succession, and its scenarios or characters, in law teaching;

• consider how matters such as race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, and class are represented on Succession, or how the show depicts law, law enforcement, and lawyers; or

• draw on literary techniques to illuminate (or critique) Succession's approach to the myriad legal issues it presents.

Interested individuals should send an abstract outlining the topic and substance of their proposed contribution to the DePaul Law Review by email to Lizzie Carroll, Managing Editor of Lead Articles, at [email protected], or to Prof. Susan Bandes, [email protected], or Visiting Professor Diane Kemker, [email protected]. Abstracts (of 250 words at most) should be submitted by April 30, 2023. Proposals will be reviewed and invitations issued by June 1, 2023. Initial drafts will be due August 15, 2023, with final drafts due by October 1, 2023.
