Bob Lawless (Ill.) asked me to post the following Call for Papers for the 2013 MLEA, and I am delighted to do so. University of Illinois College of Law will host the conference and the deadline for proposals is August 1, 2013. A brief description of the conference follows (more details here).
"The University of Illinois College of Law and the Illinois Program on Law, Behavior & Social Science are hosting the Thirteenth Annual Meeting of the Midwest Law & Economics Association on October 11 & 12, 2013 in Champaign, Illinois. To participate, you need not be a Midwestern economist or even an economist or a Midwesterner. The event consists of law professors and economists presenting papers with varying degrees of law-and-economics content, ranging from empirical analyses and formal economic modeling to legal philosophy and doctrinal papers infused with economic thinking. Presentations will begin Friday morning and end early- to mid-afternoon on Saturday."
