2015 Conference Schedule

September 23rd, 2015

Here is the schedule for the 2015 CSLSA Scholarship Conference: 2015 Schedule

Featured Scholar – Professor Kit Johnson

September 18th, 2015

Today’s featured scholar is Professor Kit Johnson from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in Norman, OK. Prof. Johnson’s paper, entitled A Cost-Benefit Analysis of the Federal Prosecution of Immigration Crimes, will be featured in volume 92:4 of the Denver University Law Review. The article examines the benefits of the federal prosecution of immigration crimes (training, deterrence, and signaling/expression) and balances those benefits against the costs of such prosecutions (court- house costs, alternative prosecution, and incarceration). It concludes that deportation immediately following a conviction for an immigration crime appears to capture the key benefit of this system (signaling/expression) while alleviating its greatest expense (incarceration).

Featured Scholar – Professor Kellen Zale

September 11th, 2015

Today’s featured scholar is Professor Kellen Zale from the University of Houston Law Center in Houston, Texas. Prof. Zale’s paper, entitled Sharing Property, will be featured in the University of Colorado Law Review in 2016. The article brings clarity and coherence to the discourse on the sharing economy by unpacking the underlying activities taking place within the sharing economy and developing a conceptual framework and taxonomy of sharing. By being more precise about what we mean when we talk about the sharing economy and situating these activities with respect to existing legal institutions and shifting social norms, the Article provides an essential foundation for future scholarship on the sharing economy, as well as for policymakers evaluating regulatory responses to the sharing economy.
