Editor’s Forward

The 94th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held in August in Montreal, Canada.  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:
Abbey Stemler (Indiana University), Todd Haugh (Indiana University), and Josh Perry (Indiana University), The Code of the Platform

Distinguished Proceedings Papers:
Jennifer Pacella (Indiana University), The Regulation of Lawyers in Compliance

Leora Eisenstadt (Temple University), Data Analytics and the Erosion of the Work/Non-Work Divide

Kathryn Kisska-Schulze (Clemson), Corey Ciocchetti (University of Denver), Ralph Flick (Pacific Lutheran University), Case Baiting: Future Legislating from the Long Arm of the Bench

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(s) whose work made the most significant contribution to enhancing the quality of the paper reviewed.

2019 Ernie King Best Reviewer Award:  Matthew Phillips, Wake Forest University

I wish to thank everyone for working with me as I navigated my first year as Editor of the Proceedings. I am grateful to the many reviewers for the 2019 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.

Best Regards,
