“Thank you, thank you, thank you! This was one of the best (and most fun!) conferences I’ve ever attended. I know you work tirelessly behind the scenes to make it so, and yet you somehow manage to make it look effortless. I’m just sad we have to wait two years until the next one!”
Prof. Michael B. Dorff, Downer Chair of Corporate Law
Southwestern Law School, LA

“The conference was really challenging, with so many professional and interesting people and everybody was really nice. I come home with lots of ideas, experiences and great information for future research. So, again, thank you very much for giving all of us such a great and fantastic opportunity!”
Prof. Laura Muro, Business and Economics Department,
Saint Louis University Madrid
