UC-Davis Law School and The American College of Trust and Estate Counsel have issued a Call for Papers for a symposium on Empirical Analysis of Wealth Transfer Law to be held at UC-Davis Law School on Friday, October 11, 2019, with papers to be published in the UC Davis Law Review:
The event’s goals are to bring together established and emerging scholars and to foster discussion about empirical scholarship about wills, nonprobate transfers, intestacy, inheritance taxation, and related issues.
If you would like to be considered to present a paper, please email an abstract of no more than two pages to Professor David Horton by March 1, 2019. The Law Review will notify those selected by March 15, 2019. Please be aware that speakers must submit drafts that are ready for the editing stage of the production process by mid-November 2019.
Speakers will be reimbursed for their reasonable travel expenses (economy airfare, ground transportation, and up to two nights in a local hotel). Speakers will also be invited to dinner on Friday, October 11. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to speakers and attendees on October 11 courtesy of the ACTEC Foundation. Questions about the symposium or this Call for Papers should be directed to David Horton or Professor Adam Hirsch.
