Five University of Virginia School of Law professors will present papers at the American Law and Economics Association annual meeting Friday and Saturday.

“The Virginia faculty has made central contributions to law and economics for over 40 years and continues to do so today. Participation in the ALEA annual meeting is one useful measure of that influence," said Law School Dean Paul G. Mahoney, a former member of the ALEA Board of Directors.

During the conference, held at Harvard Law School, the following professors will present their work:

  • Michal Barzuza will present “Short-Termism and Long-Termism” with her co-author, Eric Talley. She also is chair of the panel Hedge Fund Activism.
  • Albert Choi will present “Costs and Benefits of Concentrated Ownership: Private Benefits of Control and Long-Term Commitment.”
  • Quinn Curtis will present “Do Career Outcomes Discourage Independent Director Monitoring?,” co-authored with Justin J. Hopkins.
  • Andrew T. Hayashi will present “The Effects of Refund Anticipation Loans on Tax Filing and Compliance.”
  • Michael Livermore will present “Sociopolitical Feedbacks and Climate Change Damages,” co-authored with Peter Howard and Trevor Turner.
