Call for Papers - AALS 2013

posted by Alan White

The Creditors' and Debtors' Rights section of the Association of American Law Schools invites paper proposals for the January 2013 conference program.  The program theme is "The Great Deleveraging: Bankruptcy after the Crisis, Formal and Informal."  Complete information on the call for papers appears below the break.

Five years from the onset of the global financial crisis, households, companies, banks, cities and nations struggle to redress their balance sheets.  Some turn to the formal bankruptcy system, while others restructure or cope with debt in other fora.  Is bankruptcy working?  Could it be improved to address the debt crises? What alternatives are being used and why? How will bankruptcy reforms and other legal responses (e.g. Dodd-Frank’s orderly liquidation) affect future credit, and future crises?

            Law teachers and other scholars who have an interest in speaking at this program are invited to submit a manuscript or precis on any aspect of the foregoing theme. Junior faculty members are particularly encouraged to submit. A review committee consisting of Section officers will select one or more papers or proposals and will invite the author(s) of each selected submission to make a presentation at the program session.  Senior bankruptcy scholars will be invited to read and comment on the selected papers. We are expecting a member of the editorial board of the American Bankruptcy Law Journal to attend, and we encourage participants to submit papers to ABLJ, one of the top twenty refereed law journals.  A precis should be comprehensive enough to allow the review committee to evaluate the likely content and quality of the proposed paper; however, complete drafts will receive preference in the selection process. Please send submissions to the Program Chair—Alan White, CUNY School of Law, alan.white@mail.law.cuny.edu.  Submissions are due no later than August 1, 2012. Please forward this Call for Papers to anyone who might be interested.

Bankr-L

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, visit http://listserv.uiuc.edu/archives/bankr-l.html and click on the link for "Join or leave the list." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
