The Center for Law, Economics & Finance (C-LEAF) at The George Washington University Law School is pleased to announce its third annual Junior Faculty Business and Financial Law Workshop to be held April 5-6, 2013. Scholarship in accounting, banking, bankruptcy, corporations, economics, finance and securities is encouraged.

Approximately ten papers will be chosen from those submitted for presentation at the Workshop. At the Workshop, senior scholars will comment on each paper, followed by a general discussion of each paper among all participants.

Deadline: Submit a summary or draft, preferably by e-mail, on or before November 9, 2012.

To facilitate blind review, your name and other identifying information should be redacted from your paper submission. Direct your submission, along with any inquiries related to the Workshop, to Professor Lisa M. Fairfax, Leroy Sorenson Merrifield Research Professor of Law, George Washington University Law School, 2000 H Street, NW Washington, DC 20052, lfairfax[@]

At the conclusion of the Workshop, three papers will be selected to 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 will be featured on its website as part of the C-LEAF Working Paper series.
Junior scholars who have not yet received tenure, but have held a full-time academic appointment for less than seven years as of the submission date, are cordially invited to submit summaries or drafts of their papers. Although published work is not eligible for submission, submissions may include work that has been accepted for publication. C-LEAF will cover hotel and meal expenses of all selected presenters.

Papers and Junior Faculty Scholarship Prizes will be selected after a blind review by members of the C-LEAF Executive Board. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by December 14, 2012.
