3rd Annual Conference on Institutions and Law-Making

Emory University Center for the Study of Law, Politics and Economics



The Third Annual Emory Conference on Institutions and Law Making will be held on February 22-23, 2013, at Emory University. The conference, which is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Law, Politics and Economics, will bring together scholars with a diverse range of substantive interests who share the common theme of studying how governing institutions shape the process of law making. The conference will be hosted by Tom Clark, Jeff Staton, and Cliff Carrubba of the Emory University Department of Political Scientists.

Last year's conference was a great success, with more than 30 participants and 10 separate papers. This year, the conference will bring together seven papers, ranging from judicial politics to administrative law to comparative legislative behavior. The full schedule and travel information will be posted soon.  In the meantime, questions should be directed to the Center for the Study of Law, Economics and Politics.

The conference program will cover two days, beginning with a light lunch on Friday, February 22, and concluding in the early afternoon on Saturday, February 23. The conference is free and open to the public. We do request, however, that anyone who plans on attending send an e-mail to the Center for the Study of Law, Politics and Economics.

Conference Location

On Friday, February 22, the conference will be held in the Candler School of Theology, Room 322.  For Saturday, February 23, the conference will move to the Jones Room on the third floor of the Woodruff Library on Emory's main campus.
