Selected Referred Papers Delivered at the 2001 ALSB Annual Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Editor’s Forward

The 76th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held in August 2001 at the Hilton Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The academic program was attended by 282 members and included 160 paper presentations, 20 panels, teaching and research symposia, and various other discussions and workshops.

From the papers presented, twenty-six of the papers were submitted for double-blind review.  Approximately sixty-five percent of the submissions were accepted for publication in the Proceedings.  The acceptance rate was somewhat lower than last year while the number of submissions increased; overall, the quality of the submissions continues to increase.  These papers are representative of the papers presented in Albuquerque.

The Distinguished Proceedings papers were selected as the best from all the submissions, and were presented during a special session at the conference.  Congratulations to Cindy Schipani, author of the Outstanding Distinguished Paper, and to Lynda Oswald and Dana Muir, authors of the Distinguished Papers.

Warm appreciation is extended to everyone who contributed to the success of the 2001 ALSB meeting.  Special thanks to Program Chair Ginny Maurer for her planning of the academic and social programs, and to Executive Secretary Dan Herron for his non-stop efforts on behalf of the Academy without which we would be lost. I would like to thank the reviewers for the Proceedings, and the discussants of the Distinguished Papers, for their hard work.  Your time, effort, and consideration of the submissions make the Proceedings better every year. I enjoyed working with all of you, and look forward to next year.

The 2002 annual meeting will be in Las Vegas from July 27 to 31.  Make your plans to at the Mandalay Bay resort.  There will be a Distinguished Paper session at the meeting, a Distinguished Paper section in the Proceedings, plaques, and monetary recognition of the Distinguished Papers.  I encourage everyone to participate in the ALSB meeting and in the Proceedings.
