The DFG LawFin Center at Goethe University in Frankfurt, the LSE Law School, the Faculty of Law of the University of Oxford, and the Institute for Law & Economics at the University of Pennsylvania are pleased to announce the convening of ‘The Law and Finance of Private Equity and Venture Capital’ conference on June 12-13, 2024, at Penn Carey Law School in Philadelphia.

Conference organizers seek to attract research of the highest scholarly quality in the fields of law and finance related to private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC), broadly defined, to be presented at the Conference. We invite researchers to submit either (1) a working paper that will not yet be published at the time of the Conference, or (2) an earlier-stage research project in the form of an extended abstract, via email to research@lawfin.uni-frankfurt.de with the subject ‘2024 Conference Submission’ by February 29, 2024. Those who hold a full-time academic appointment but have not yet received tenure as of the submission are especially encouraged to submit.

The organizers will select papers and assign each of them one or more discussants chosen from among distinguished practitioners, industry representatives, policymakers, finance scholars, economists, and legal scholars. There will also be ample time for a general discussion of each paper among conference participants. Authors of accepted submissions will receive a notification by March 29, 2024, and will have until April 5, 2024 to confirm their participation.
