Conference at Penn Honoring the Scholarship of Ronald Gilson

This Thursday I am excited and honored to be part of a wonderful conference at Penn, co-organized by Stanford Law, Columbia Law, Wharton & the Journal of Corporate Law, honoring the scholarship of Professor Ronald Gilson. There will be six speakers, each presenting a paper that responds to a line of Gilson's scholarship (my paper is about his influential article on noncompetes and the rise of Silicon Valley's high tech region). Gilson will be delivering the luncheon keynote speech and the papers of the conference will all be published in the Journal of Corporate Law. Here is a glimpse of the agenda:
