About the Tenth Anniversary Symposium:
Co-Hosted by the LEC as the Third Annual Henry G. Manne Law and Economics Conference
& Co-Hosted by JLEP as the Journal’s Tenth Annual Symposium

Please join us as we honor the contributions of Armen Alchian, Judge Robert Bork, and James Buchanan.  This one-day symposium will reflect on the lives and works of three great scholars who contributed in significant ways to Law and 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 Memorial Prize in Economic Science.
