Third Annual Henry G. Manne Law & Economics Conference

Tenth Anniversary Symposium of the Journal of Law, Economics, and Policy

This one day symposium reflected on the lives and works of three great scholars who contributed in significant ways to Law & Economics at George Mason University School of Law: 

  • Armen Alchian taught in the LEC's Economics Institutes for Judges and Law Professors for over 20 years.
  • Robert Bork taught as an adjunct professor at the law school during its formative years.
  • James Buchanan was instrumental in the hiring of Henry G. Manne as Dean of GMU School of Law in 1986 — the same year in which Buchanan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Science. 

The symposium consisted of four panels — one dedicated to each of the scholars and a concluding panel that synthesized the contributions of all three.

Those presenting included:
  • The Honorable Douglas H. Ginsburg, US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit
  • The Honorable Joshua D. Wright, Federal Trade Commission
  • Peter Boettke, George Mason University Department of Economics
  • Terry Anderson, Property and Environment Research Center
