Call for Papers: The Public Choice Analysis of the Legal System

The Supreme Court Economic Review (SCER) solicits article submissions for a Roundtable on the Public Choice Analysis of the Legal System to be held on February 28 and March 1, 2019, at Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. All submissions will go through SCER’s normal peer review process, and accepted papers will be published in a special issue of the Supreme Court Economic Review. The editors of the special issue (Greg DeAngelo, Bryan C. McCannon, and Murat Mungan) will also invite one discussant to participate in the Roundtable for each article, and to publish a comment in the special issue. SCER will reimburse reasonable travel and accommodation costs incurred by authors and discussants participating in the Roundtable. The deadline for submission is November 20, 2018. However, the editors will consider submissions on a rolling basis, and, therefore, the review process may end prior to this date.

Public choice research has made substantial progress in centering the discussion of policy and institutions towards the consideration of the incentives of the actors chosen to make those decisions. Relatively little research has been done appreciating the public choice distortions within the legal system. This gap is a concern. For example, the criminal justice system relies on the publicly-provided services of prosecutors, judges, public defenders, and law enforcement to name a few. It is not clear that principal-agent concerns have been addressed, and accountability mechanisms are weak. In other areas of law, the potential for political influences in civil law, incentives of judges, arbitrators, and juries is underdeveloped. The SCER has a long history of supporting such research as Judge Richard Posner’s seminal contribution to the evaluation of judge’s objective functions was published by the Review in 1993. The objective of this roundtable is to facilitate scholarship that combines public choice and law and economics.

SCER is seeking submissions that contribute to our understanding of the public choice of the legal system. Submissions from any area of law is encouraged. Examples of public choice investigations include the effect of re-election pressures on prosecutors, campaign support’s influence on judicial decision making, extralegal factors influencing sentencing, incentives created by arbitration mechanisms, partisan ideology of the judiciary, political influence and corruption, special interest influences in areas such as property and contracts. Contributions may include theoretical or empirical analyses that rigorously apply the law and economics methodology.
