Selected Refereed Papers Delivered at the 2009 ALSB Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado

Editor’s Forward

The 84th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held in August 2009 in Denver, Colorado.

Those papers that were submitted for the double-blind review process and accepted for publication are listed below. It is with great pleasure that I present this peer reviewed sample of work that is representative of the high quality of work done by our colleagues.

I would like to thank the reviewers for the 2009 Proceedings. Your time, consideration, and thoughtfulness make the Proceedings better every year. Your service to the Proceedings and the authors is appreciated more than you will every know.

We are in need of reviewers and those who would be willing to serve as discussants at the Distinguished Proceedings Sections. Please contact Ronnie Cohen, Christopher Newport University, rcohen@cnu.edu if you have any interest in becoming involved with the Proceedings. I assure you that based upon the quality of the work I’ve seen, you will find it an exciting learning experience as well as a bit of a humbling experience.

Best Regards,
