Neuroeconomics and Innovation

web-version.jpgI’m in LA for the next few days, at the Law, Economics and Neuroscience Conference: Implications for Innovation, sponsored by The Southern California Innovation Project, Theoretical Research in Neuroeconomic Decision-making (TREND) and The Center for Communication Law & Policy. As the press-release says, the idea is to bring together neuroscience researchers, economists, and ordinary law professors and see if the whole is greater than the sum of their parts.

[Gillian] Hadfield [who is organizing the conference on the law side] hopes the symposium will lead to more collaboration among scholars who may appear to have very different goals and backgrounds.

“You don’t usually find scientists, economists and lawyers talking together about the same topic,” Hadfield said. “I think people will find that we can enrich the research agenda of all these disciplines with this kind of cross pollination.”

I hope to blog the conference, or at least my parts in in, over the next few days. I’ll be commenting on Mat McCubbins’ co-authored paper, The Effect of Institutions on Behavior and Brain Activity: Insights from EEGs and Timed-Response Experiments. In the paper, on Boudreau, Coulson, and McCubbins found that identical cooperative behavior in a trust game seems to arise from distinct neurological mechanisms, depending on whether trust in others arose from incentives or penalties. After the session tomorrow I’ll post some of my comments, which intend to connect this paper to the large law review literature on trust.

Announcing Postscript, the Online Companion to the Southern California Law Review

Scal-postscript1.jpg

The Southern California Law Review is pleased to announce the launch of its new online companion, Postscript. Other top law schools have added online companions, and the Law Review finds these new mediums to be a developing and important component of legal scholarship. Postscript permits us to publish a wider variety of material than we can accommodate in our printed journal. Postscript is intended to enhance legal scholarship by providing a forum where academics, practitioners, and students can respond to articles published in the Law Review and to recent legal developments in a concise and expedited format.

Postscript invites two categories of submissions. First, Postscript publishes responses to articles published in the Law Review. Second, Postscript publishes commentaries on legal developments and significant court decisions. We issue topic prompts for commentaries. In addition, authors are free to submit commentaries on other topics.

Postscript utilizes a more expedited production process than the Law Review. Thus, we encourage responses and commentaries under 3,000 words and lightly footnoted. Academics, judges, practitioners, and students are free to submit pieces of original scholarship to Postscript.

For more information, please visit our website. For comments or suggestions, please e-mail postscript@law.usc.edu. We invite and look forward to your participation in Postscript.

Announcing the Law Review Table of Contents Project

table-of-contents1.jpg

I’m pleased to announce a new feature at Concurring Opinions – the Law Review Table of Contents Project. We have invited a number of the top law reviews to post the table of contents to their new issues and to provide links to the articles if they are posted on the law review’s website.

The goal of the Table of Contents Project is to provide you with a useful research tool. Finding out about the latest law review publications can be difficult. If you’re like me, you rarely read the physical issues of law reviews anymore; and you don’t have time to constantly keep checking each law review’s website to see if a new issue has been published. Now you don’t have to. Just keep reading Concurring Opinions, and information about the latest law review scholarship will be brought to you – all in one place!

Each journal’s tables of contents will be archived in two categories: (1) a category called Law Rev Contents – collecting all the law review table of contents postings; and (2) a category for each specific law review.

Participating law reviews thus far include:

* Boston College

* Chicago

* Columbia

* Cornell

* Duke

* Emory

* Fordham

* Georgetown

* GW

* Harvard

* Indiana

* Michigan

* Minnesota

* NYU

* Northwestern

* Notre Dame

* Southern California

* Stanford

* Texas

* UCLA

* Vanderbilt

* Virginia

* Washington University

* Yale

We still have a bunch of open invitations, so we anticipate that the number of participants will grow. Unfortunately, we cannot include all law reviews, as this will overwhelm the regular content of our blog.

We hope that you find this new feature to be helpful. We’re very excited about it here, as we believe that this will be of great use to keep you informed about new legal scholarship.
