UO Law welcomes business law scholars Oct. 4
The western United States is home to a vibrant community of business law scholars. To foster this community and promote intellectual exchange, the University of Oregon School of Law is proud to host the inaugural Pacific West Business Law Scholars Colloquium from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, in the Wayne Morse Suite of the White Stag facilities in downtown Portland.
The colloquium, spearheaded by law school Assistant Professor Mohsen Manesh, will feature six papers, selected from a call for papers, covering a variety of business law topics including corporate law, securities law, financial regulation, bankruptcy, tax and corporate constitutional rights. Approximately one hour will be devoted to each paper, including a presentation by the paper’s author followed by discussion among the other colloquium participants.
The following scholars are scheduled to participate at the colloquium, either as a presenter and/or discussant:
Abe Cable, associate professor, University of California Hastings College of Law
Wendy Gerwick Couture, associate professor, University of Idaho College of Law
Diane Lourdes Dick, assistant professor, Seattle University School of Law
Eric H. Franklin, director of the Community Economic Development Clinic and associate professor, University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Law

Mohsen Manesh, assistant professor, University of Oregon School of Law
Elizabeth Pollman, associate professor, Loyola Law School Los Angeles

The purposefully small size of the colloquium will ensure that each participant has the opportunity to contribute to the scholarly conversation. The goal of the event is to provide a regional forum, especially for junior scholars, for the collegial exchange of ideas.
