Financial Restructuring Roundtable
Call for Papers
April 13, 2023 [New Date]
New York City
The Financial Restructuring Roundtable (formerly the West Coast Bankruptcy Roundtable) will be held in person on April 13, 2023 in New York City. Spearheaded by Tony Casey, Samir Parikh, Robert Rasmussen, and Michael Simkovic, this invitation-only event brings together practitioners, jurists, scholars, and finance industry professionals to discuss important financial restructuring and business law issues.
The Financial Restructuring Roundtable invites the submission of papers. Selected participants will receive a $2,000 stipend and have the opportunity to workshop their papers in an intimate, collegial setting. Last year’s attendees included Barry Adler, Ken Ayotte, Douglas Baird, Bruce Bennett, Susan Block-Lieb, Jared Ellias, Anna Gelpern, Marshall Huebner, Ed Morrison, Mark Roe, David Skeel, and Jamie Sprayregen.
The Financial Restructuring Roundtable seek papers exploring diverse topics and will be interested in interdisciplinary perspectives. Papers will be selected through a blind review process. Scholars are invited to submit a 3 – 5 page overview of a proposed paper. Submissions may be an introduction, excerpt from a longer paper, or extended abstract. The submission should be anonymized, and – aside from general citations to the author’s previous articles – all references to the author should be removed.
Please submit proposals by October 10, 2022. Invitations will be issued via email by November 15. Working drafts of papers should be available for circulation to participants by March 10, 2023.
Proposals – as well as questions and concerns – should be directed to Samir Parikh at email@example.com.
The Financial Restructuring Roundtable is hosted by the University of Chicago Law School, USC Gould School of Law, and Lewis & Clark Law School in partnership with Sidley Austin.
