Upcoming Scholarly Events
Loyola will host dozens of legal scholars and numerous events this semester, including the international Legal Theory Roundtable, the Southern California Junior Law Faculty Workshop, the Civil Justice Symposium “Injury as Cultural Practice,” and the U.S.-China IP Conference co-sponsored by U.C. Berkeley and the University of Renmin, China.
A Corporate Right to Privacy?
Elizabeth Pollman is an award-winning business law scholar. Her most recent article, A Corporate Right to Privacy, 99 Minnesota L. Rev. __ (forthcoming 2015), provides the first scholarly treatment of the unresolved issue of whether corporations have, or should have, a right to privacy. She argues that corporate privacy rights should be evaluated by reference to the privacy interests of the various people involved in and their relationship to the corporation.
The Economics of the Bond Market
Carlos Berdejó is an economist. His recent research will appear in Revisiting the Voting Prohibition in Bond Workouts (forthcoming, Tulane), in which he evaluates the economic impact of the longstanding prohibition against collective action clauses (CACs) on the $250 billion U.S. bond market. Through an innovative exercise in comparative law involving Chile, Brazil and Germany, he proposes a more efficient rule and offers new insights into the relative merits of mandatory and default contracting rules.
Loyola hosted the inaugural Southern California Criminal Justice Roundtable, an intensive day-long paper workshop for criminal justice scholars from UCLA, USC, UC Irvine and Loyola. The next Roundtable will be hosted by UCLA.
Mass Corporate Settlements
Adam Zimmerman’s innovative scholarship on mass litigation is already influencing the public debate. In The Corporate Settlement Mill, 101 Virginia L. Rev. __ (2015) (with Dana Remus), he argues that high-volume settlement programs designed and run by sophisticated corporate wrongdoers have a dark side, threatening transparency, fair dealing, and the rule of law, and raising fundamental questions about how far policymakers may go to privatize our public system of adjudication.
Loyola professors are original and influential scholars. Published in leading law reviews and widely cited by judicial opinions, their work is often at the center of important public policy debates. With dozens of treatises and casebooks to their credit, Loyola faculty bring scholarly rigor to every aspect of the legal profession and the classroom.
