Announcing New "Fiduciary Law" eJournal from SSRN
Posted by Gordon Smith

I am very pleased to be editing the new "Fiduciary Law" eJournal on SSRN. You can see a first cut at the papers in the journal here, and you can subscribe to the journal here. Below is a description of the contents of the journal and a list of our amazing Advisory Board!

 

Description: The Fiduciary Law eJournal includes working and accepted paper abstracts relating to fiduciary law in myriad private and public contexts. Fiduciary principles govern a remarkably broad and diverse set of relationships, offices, and institutions. They govern a wide array of professional relationships, including interactions between lawyers and clients, doctors and patients, and investment advisors and clients. They also underlie basic legal categories of relationship, including agency, trusts, and partnerships. They are the basis on which most private and public offices are held and executed. Not incidentally, they provide the core governance framework for the administration of private and public organizations, from corporations, charities, and hospitals to universities and school boards. Both U.S. political theory and international legal theory also share a rich tradition of employing fiduciary principles to explain and justify the exercise of state authority. Cutting across many varied fields of legal studies, the eJournal is designed to serve a cross-indexing function for legal scholars interested in fiduciary law, with the ultimate objective of stimulating communication and cross-fertilization. The eJournal welcomes a broad range of methodological approaches, including those drawn from economics, history, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.
