Law and Entrepreneurship Association - Call for Papers
Posted by Gordon Smith

The 13th annual meeting of the Law and Entrepreneurship Association (LEA) will be held on April 5, 2019 at Boston College Law School.

The LEA is a group of legal scholars interested in the topic of entrepreneurship—broadly construed. Scholars include those who write about corporate law and finance, securities, intellectual property, labor and employment law, tax, and other fields related to entrepreneurship and innovation policy. Our annual meeting is an intimate gathering where each participant is expected to read and actively engage with all papers under discussion.

The theme for the meeting will be Unicorns and the Law. We seek papers addressing issues raised by the growing number of highly-valued private companies that are delaying IPOs.  One or more panels will be organized around this theme. Possible topics include disclosure requirements, unicorn valuation, regulation of private trading markets, the role of sovereign wealth funds and mutual funds as unicorn investors and governance issues including dual class capitalization, fraud, employee protection, employment discrimination, and compliance with law. We also welcome papers on other topics relevant to entrepreneurship. 

Proposals should be comprehensive enough to allow the LEA board to evaluate the aims and likely content of the papers they propose. Papers may be accepted for publication but must not be published prior to the meeting. Works in progress, even those at a relatively early stage, are welcome. Junior scholars and those considering entering the legal academy are especially encouraged to participate.

To submit a proposal or paper, please email Professor Renee Jones at [email protected] by January 4, 2109. Please include the subject line: “LEA Submission – {Name}.”

Boston College Law School is located in Newton, Massachusetts, with easy access to Boston Logan Airport and Downtown Boston.For additional information, please email Professor Renee Jones at [email protected].
