Göran Skogh Award

The foundation Forum för Rättsekonomi (Forum for Law and Economics), in cooperation with EALE, awards a prize for the best paper presented by a young scholar at the EALE Annual Conference. The prize is given in the memory of Göran Skogh, first President of EALE.

The purpose of this award is to encourage outstanding young Law-and-Economics scholars to remain in the academia.

A committee of three distinguished professors, appointed by the EALE Management Board, will select the most promising young scholar paper at the conference. The winner will receive €1000. Other promising work will be given attention. The Prize may be shared.

The Committee’s choice shall be based on the papers presented at the conference. In order to qualify for the prize, the author should be “young and productive”. Specifically, the author (and coauthors, if any) should have completed his/her academic education (Ph.D. defense) not earlier than two years prior to the submission deadline for the Annual Conference. The decision of the Committee is final and cannot be appealed.

Authors submitting papers for the EALE Annual Conference, who would like to participate in the competition for the most promising young scholar paper, shall inform the organizer upon submission.
