Selected Refereed Papers Delivered at the 2021 ALSB Annual Conference – Online
The 96th annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business was held on August 1-6, 2021, online due to the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. 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.
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.
2021 Ernie King Best Reviewer Award: Dexter Gruber, University of Indianapolis. Congratulations Dexter!
I am grateful to the many reviewers for the 2021 ALSB Proceedings. Your time, thoughtful comments and 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. I received numerous comments this year from authors specifically asking me to reach out to their reviewers to thank them for the insightful comments they received. I was very impressed with the quality of the reviews this year. Thank you also to all of those who offered to review but I was unable to provide a paper for you to review. I hope you will offer to review again in 2022.
I wish you all a healthy and successful new academic year.
