Consumer Law Scholarship

posted by Elizabeth Warren

I noticed that a consumer education journal has put out a call for papers, both policy pieces and empirical research that might inform those who do consumer education.  Because many of the folks who read this list care a great deal about consumer law but are not located in the same academic space as the people who do consumer education issues, I thought I'd pass along this opportunity.

Anyone who is interested should get in touch with Dr. Angela Lyons at [email protected]

I can't quit without noting the different scholarly traditions.  The manuscripts should be no longer than twelve pages, double-spaced, including text, references, tables, and figures.  After so many years of writing for law reviews, I can barely clear my throat in twelve pages--and that takes about forty footnotes.

How daring to think about writing short pieces that get right to the point.
