Department of Land Economy

Environment, Law & Economics

The twelfth annual meeting of the Society for Environmental Law and Economics will be held on Monday and Tuesday, June 22 & 23, 2020, at the Department of Land Economy and Selwyn College, University of Cambridge.
We hope to build upon the great success of past meetings, and continue to build a community of environmental scholars interested in working in the intersection of law, economics, and environmental or natural resource issues. We welcome both theoretical and empirical papers, as well as studies looking at problems at local, state, national, and international levels.

In the spirit of collegiality, the meeting will use a workshop format in which all sessions are plenary. Please note that all participants are expected to attend all of the presentations. Our goal is to create a program that includes a variety of disciplinary perspectives, ideally consisting of 20-25 papers over the two-day period. This year, we may include some "lightning round" sessions with shorter presentations.

No funding will be available for travel or lodging expenses. Food and drink will be provided during the workshop and a dinner will be hosted on Monday evening for the speakers.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: To submit a paper, please email a Word or PDF file to Shaun Larcom () with the subject line "SELE SUBMISSION," by November 30, 2018. We will review all submissions and get back to you by January 15, 2019. Late submissions will not be considered absent exceptional circumstances.

FURTHER INFORMATION: We will provide information regarding accommodation, the conference program, and other logistic matters early next year. Inquiries can be sent to Please feel free to forward this call to any colleagues that you feel may be interested but may not be aware of SELE.
