Home Program Participants Lodging Map

Welcome to the official website of the Tenth Annual Political Economy and Public Law (PEPL) Conference. This year’s PEPL conference is sponsored by the USC Gould School of Law and the USC Price School of Public Policy’s Bedrosian Center on Governance.

The goal of the conference is to strengthen the connections between legal scholars and social scientists doing work at the intersection of politics, economics, and law. This year, we will be discussing papers on police contracts, racial disparities in police shootings, group-based profiling by police, gerrymandering, corruption and campaign finance regulations, campaign finance disclosure, the petitions clause and the administrative state, judicial review of agencies, congressional oversight of agencies, and the imperial foundations of separation of powers.
