The Center for Law, Economics & Finance (C-LEAF) at The George Washington University Law School has announced its third annual Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop and Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes. This year’s Workshop will be held on April 5-6, 2013 at GW in Washington.
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 aims to encourage new and innovative scholarship.
I’ve participated in both previous Workshops and can attest that participants have benefited from the exchange of ideas and getting acquiainted with newer scholars. About 100 papers are submitted and the C-LEAF faculty select about 10 for presentaiton. At the Workshop, senior scholars comment on each paper, followed by a general discussion.
Three papers 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 are featured on its website as part of the C-LEAF Working Paper series. Read More
