Loyola at a Glance

Law faculty share ideas with state peers

October 15, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law hosted the fall 2010 meeting of the Louisiana Junior Faculty Forum recently.

The recurring forum provides an opportunity for junior scholars to present and discuss their work and to network with others in the field. These meetings occur once each semester and rotate between the four law schools in New Orleans and Baton Rouge: Loyola, Tulane University, Louisiana State University and Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge.

“These forums have been very successful and result in publication of professors’ work in several preeminent law journals,” said forum co-organizer Johanna Kalb, assistant professor of law at Loyola University.

The workshop at Loyola on Oct. 1 included three presenters:

  • Professor Trey Drury, Loyola University College of Law, “Board Capture in M&A: Theory and Evidence”
  • Professor Ken Levy, LSU Law School, “Excuses, Excuses…and Moral Responsibility: Is it Sometimes Fair to Punish Blameless Wrongdoers?"
  • Elizabeth Townsend Gard, Tulane University Law School, “Copyright v. Trade Policy: Understanding the Golan Battle within the Tenth Circuit”
