CFP: Law and Economics of Organization

The Walter A. Haas School of Business, with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, has issued a call for original research papers to be presented at the conference on "The Law and Economics of Organization: New Challenges and Directions." The conference will be held at the Haas School of Business in Berkeley, California, on November 30-December 1, 2012. A reception and dinner will follow a keynote address by Nobel Laureate Oliver Williamson on Friday.   
   The purpose of the conference is to take stock of recent advances in the analysis of economic organization and institutions inspired by the work of 2009 Nobel Laureate Oliver Williamson and to examine its implications for contemporary problems of organization and regulation. Empirical research and research informed by detailed industry and institutional knowledge is especially welcome.   
   Paper proposals or, if available, completed papers should be submitted on line at http://www.bus.umich.edu/Conferences/Haas-Sloan-LEO-Conference by March 31, 2012. The deadline for completed papers will be November 1, 2012.    For complete information, please see the conference website.
