Program Description: The Manne Faculty Forum is an annual Roundtable, held in September, where junior tenure-track faculty at George Mason University School of Law present draft papers for comment, discussion, and critique by senior faculty at the law school. Each author also invites one other discussant of their choice to participate. Following the Forum, the authors revise their papers and seek publication.

The Manne Faculty Forum is named for Henry G. Manne, Dean Emeritus of George Mason University School of Law, founder of the Law & Economics Center, and champion for the free-market foundations of the law and economics movement.
