THE CENTER FOR LAW, ECONOMICS, AND FINANCE (C-LEAF)  AT

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL

 Second Annual JUNIOR FACULTY BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL LAW WORKSHOP

AND JUNIOR FACULTY SCHOLARSHIP PRIZES

 Sponsored by Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP

 CALL FOR PAPERS

           The Center for Law, Economics, and Finance (C-LEAF) at The George Washington University Law School is pleased to announce its second annual Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop and Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes.  The Workshop and Prizes are sponsored by Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. The Workshop will be held on February 10-11, 2012 at GW Law School in Washington, DC.

            The Workshop supports and recognizes the work of young legal scholars in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, economics, finance and securities, while promoting interaction among them and selected senior faculty. By providing a forum for the exchange of creative ideas in these areas, C-LEAF also aims to encourage new and innovative scholarship.

            Approximately ten 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 will comment on each paper, followed by a general discussion of each paper among all participants. The Workshop audience will include invited young scholars, faculty from GW’s Law School and Business School, faculty from other institutions, and invited guests.

             At the conclusion of the Workshop, three papers will be selected to receive Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000, respectively.  All prize winners will be invited to become Fellows of C-LEAF. C-LEAF makes no publication commitment, but chosen papers will be featured on its website as part of the C-LEAF Working Paper series.

             Junior scholars who have held a full-time academic appointment for less than seven years as of the submission date are cordially invited to submit summaries or drafts of their papers.  Although published work is not eligible for submission, submissions may include work that has been accepted for publication. C-LEAF will cover hotel and meal expenses of all selected presenters.

            Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, one of the leading law firms serving the financial services industry and known for its premier practice in the area of private investment funds and private equity M&A, generously sponsors the Junior Faculty Scholarship Workshop and Prizes and provides other financial assistance to C-LEAF.

            Those interested in presenting a paper at the Workshop should submit a summary or draft, preferably by e-mail, before October 7, 2011.  To facilitate blind review, your name and other identifying information should be redacted from your paper submission.  Direct your submission, along with any inquiries related to the Workshop, to: Professor Lisa M. Fairfax; Leroy Sorenson Merrifield Research Professor of Law; George Washington University Law School; 2000 H Street, NW; Washington, DC 20052; lfairfax@law.gwu.edu.

            Papers and Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes will be selected after a blind review by members of the C-LEAF Executive Board. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by November 15, 2011. Please feel free to pass this Call for Papers along to any colleagues who may be interested.
