Selected Refereed Papers Delivered at the 2013 ALSB Annual Conference in Boston, Massachusetts
The 88th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held in August 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. 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:
Outstanding Proceedings Paper: Conflict Minerals and Polycentric Governance of Business and Human Rights by Jamie Darin Prenkert.

Distinguished Proceedings Paper: Transitioning a River Outfitter to the Next Generation by Debra Burke and Carroll Brown.

The Ernie King Best Reviewer Award was established in honor of Ernest W. King, long time Proceedings Editor and beloved colleague of many members of the Academy. This award is given to the reviewer whose work made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of the paper reviewed.
