CALL FOR PAPERS

AALS Section on Agency, Partnerships, LLCs, and Unincorporated Associations

The Scholarship of Professor Larry Ribstein

2013 AALS Annual Meeting

New Orleans, LA

Larry Ribstein was a friend to many and a colleague to all of us in the academy.  With his untimely passing, he leaves behind a pioneering and influential body of work across a vast range of subjects, including partnerships and limited liability companies, corporate and securities law, choice of law, financial regulation, white-collar crime, legal ethics, and the legal profession.

The AALS Section on Agency, Partnership, LLCs, and Unincorporated Associations seeks to honor Larry’s legacy by focusing on his work at the 2013 AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans.  We are soliciting papers on a broad range of issues dealing with Larry’s partnership, LLC, and/or “uncorporation” scholarship.  Among the topics that might be addressed are:  

•      An evaluation of the impact of Larry’s scholarship in a particular area;

 •      A discussion of issues or positions that Larry changed his mind on over time, and how;

 •      An examination of how Larry’s work in other areas informed his work in the unincorporated sphere, and vice-versa;

 •      “Larry as blogger” and the influence of his web postings

Submission procedure: A draft paper or proposal may be submitted via email to Professor Douglas Moll at dmoll@central.uh.edu

Deadline date for submission: April 1, 2012

Form and length of paper; submission eligibility: There is no requirement as to the form or length of proposals.  Faculty members of AALS member and fee-paid law schools are eligible to submit papers. 

Registration fee and expenses: Program participants will be responsible for paying their annual meeting registration fee and expenses.

How will papers be reviewed?: Papers and proposals will be selected after review by the Section’s Executive Committee.

Will the program be published?: The section plans to contact the law reviews at schools where Professor Ribstein taught in the hopes of publishing the papers submitted for the meeting as a symposium.  At this time, however, no guarantees of publication can be made.

Contact for submission and inquiries:     Professor Douglas Moll, University of Houston Law Center. 713-743-2172 or dmoll@central.uh.edu
