Notable Number of Law Professors Present at Law and Economics Conference

July 2, 2008




Five Law School professors, including several junior faculty members, presented at the annual May meeting of the American Law and Economics Association, considered the most elite law and economics conference in the nation.

"One indicator of Virginia's longstanding strength in law and economics is that we have been well-represented in the American Law and Economics Association from the beginning," said Dean Paul G. Mahoney. "ALEA is a large and extremely successful scholarly organization that fosters the sort of rigorous interdisciplinary scholarship for which Virginia is known."

ALEA's members include academics from law schools, economics departments, and business schools, as well as non-academics with an interest in law and economics.
