JLFA will offer an outlet for high quality empirical or theoretical scholarly work at the intersection of law, finance, and accounting. This intersection includes research having implications for the ways law and regulation affect the structure, governance, performance, and function of the firms, markets, and institutions that comprise the financial system, as well as research that addresses the different ways capital is raised and the links between financial markets and the real economy. Such interdisciplinary research is sometimes called “law and finance,” although much relevant work comes from scholars whose principal home is in accounting, economics, or political science.
The first JLFA conference will be held at NYU on Friday, September 19, 2014. Please submit papers through SSRN at http://hq.ssrn.com/conference=jlfa2014. Deadline: May 31st, 2014. All submissions will be reviewed by the JLFA editors. Accepted papers will be presumptively eligible for expedited publication in JLFA (subject to the authors’ compliance with referee and editor requests). im
