The eighth annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Law and Economics (SELE) will be held on 27-28 May 2016, at The University of Texas School of Law, Austin, Texas. This year the meeting will be sponsored by The University of Texas School of Law.
We hope to build upon the great success of past meetings, and continue to build a community of environmental scholars interested in working in the intersection of law, economics, and environmental or natural resource issues.
This year, we hope to put further emphasis on the interdisciplinary study of problems in environmental regulation and natural resource management.
We would welcome both theoretical and empirical papers, as well as studies looking at problems at the local and international levels.
In the spirit of collegiality, the meeting will use a workshop format in which all sessions are plenary.
We strongly encourage all participants to attend all of the presentations.
Our goal is to create a program that includes a variety of disciplinary perspectives, ideally consisting of 20-30 papers over the two-day period.
No funding will be available for travel or lodging expenses, but The University of Texas School of Law will provide food and drink during the workshop for the speakers and will host a dinner for the participants on the first day of the conference.
Further information regarding accommodation, the conference program, and other logistic matters will be posted on the SELE conference website.
Inquiries can also be sent to Gena Dawson.
PAPER SUBMISSIONS: To submit a paper, please email a Word or PDF file to Gena Dawson with the subject line “SELE SUBMISSION,” by Thursday, December 31, 2015.
We will review all the papers and get back to you by Friday, January 15, 2016.
