Selected Refereed Papers Delivered at the 2010 ALSB Annual Conference in Richmond, Virginia
The 85th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held in August 2010 in Richmond, VA. The papers published in these Proceedings were double blind reviewed by members of the Academy. Papers were recommended for publication based on the quality of the research and the relevance of the topic to the substantive areas or pedagogy of business law or legal studies.
Several papers merit special mention:

I would like to thank the reviewers for the 2010 ALSB Proceedings. Your time, your thoughtful comments and your good judgment make the Proceedings better every year. Your service to the Proceedings and to the authors is greatly appreciated by me and by all of your colleagues in the Academy.
