Chapman University School of Law 2013 Law Review Symposium

The Future of Law and Business: The Changing World for Corporate Counsel

Thursday, January 31 - Friday, February 1, 2013, Chapman University School of Law, Chapman Law Review, Orange, CA

In light of recent Supreme Court decisions affecting corporations, the restructuring of the legal profession after the deep recession and anemic recovery, the perceived benefits and costs of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the rapid evolution of corporate best practices in the past decade, the Chapman Law Review is pleased to host a legal symposium on Thursday, January 31 and Friday, February 1, 2013, entitled "The Future of Law and Business: The Changing World for Corporate Counsel."

FOCUS: This symposium, which will be hosted in affiliation with the Chapman University School of Law's Business Emphasis Program, affords an excellent opportunity to explore the impact of Supreme Court decisions and regulations that affect corporations. The symposium will also provide a platform to discuss the underlying theoretical principles of corporate regulation, the rights of corporations, corporate ethics, and general corporate governance.

The Chapman Law Review invites abstract submissions of 150 to 200 words from legal scholars and scholars in other disciplines interested in contributing to the symposium. Papers may focus on Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, Citizens United v. FEC and issues that remain relevant from that decision, NFIB v. Sebelius and the implications of the Affordable Care Act, the future of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the implementation of the Jobs Act, corporate governance, executive compensation, corporate ethics, and the restructuring of the legal profession after the recession. This list is not exhaustive.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Abstracts and proposals for panel presentation on issues related to this topic, as well as author's resume, should be submitted to: Mike Preciado, Senior Symposium Editor, Chapman Law Review, preci106@mail.chapman.edu

DEADLINE: The submission deadline for abstracts is October 19, 2012. Final papers will be due February 22, 2013.

EXPENSES: Travel expenses, accommodation and a modest stipend will be provided to participants who publish in the Chapman Law Review.
