                Sponsored by Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP



     The Center for Law, Economics and Finance (C-LEAF) at The
     George Washington University Law School is pleased to
     announce its first annual Junior Faculty Business and
     Financial Law Workshop and Junior Faculty Scholarship
     Prizes. The Workshop and Prizes are sponsored by Schulte
     Roth & Zabel LLP. The Inaugural Workshop will be held on
     April 1-2, 2011, at GW Law School in Washington, DC.



     OVERVIEW:


     The Workshop supports and recognizes the work of young
     legal scholars in accounting, banking, bankruptcy,
     corporations, economics, finance, and securities, while
     promoting interaction among them and selected senior
     faculty. By providing a forum for the exchange of creative
     ideas in these areas, C-LEAF also aims to encourage new and
     innovative scholarship.


     Up to ten papers will be chosen from those submitted for
     presentation at the Workshop pursuant to this Call for
     Papers. At the Workshop, one or more senior scholars will
     comment on each paper, followed by a general discussion of
     each paper among all participants. The Workshop audience
     will include invited young scholars, faculty from GW's Law
     School and Business School, faculty from other
     institutions, and invited guests.


     In addition to participating in the Workshop, all scholars
     selected to present at the Workshop will be invited to
     become Fellows of C-LEAF. At the conclusion of the
     Workshop, up to three papers will be awarded Junior Faculty
     Scholarship Prizes, of $3,000, $2,000, and $1,000,
     respectively. C-LEAF makes no publication commitment, but
     chosen papers will be featured on its website as part of
     the C-LEAF Working Paper series.



     QUALIFICATIONS:


     Junior scholars who 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
