Journal of Law, Finance and Accounting International Conference 2015

The Journal of Law, Finance and Accounting (JLFA) and Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Accounting and Finance are hosting an international conference June 1-2, 2015, on research at the intersection of the three fields. The JLFA is a new outlet sponsored by the NYU Stern School of Business, NYU Law School and KPMG. Per the email I received:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. The impact of the structure of the legal system — including legal origins, procedural rules, and the legal environment in general, on the evolution of financial contracts, financial markets, business enterprises and business groups.

  2. The impact of particular legal and market institutions, including accounting, on financial markets and corporate actions, and innovation, economic growth and stability.

  3. The co-evolution of the legal rules and market institutions that govern financial sector activity, that activity itself, and the nature of the broader economy and financial markets.

  4. The regulation, organization, and performance of financial institutions.

  5. The relationships between the structure and performance of financial institutions, and the performance of these institutions and the overall performance of financial markets and economies.

  6. The interplay between legal rules, accounting regulations, corporate governance, firm performance, cost of equity and debt capital, financial market performance, and economic performance.

  7. The political economy of the regulation of corporate governance, financial institutions, and financial markets.

  8. Accounting, finance, and legal issues concerning ownership and property.

Sounds like an interesting opportunity. For more information, see the conference announcement at SSRN (linked here).
