We are pleased to invite you to attend the Oxford meeting on the topics of the finance, law and economics of education. The breadth of the sessions cover elementary, secondary and higher education.


You may present a paper, participate as panel member or as an observer.  If you would like to present a paper, you must submit a brief abstract for review.


Papers presented will be subsequently peer reviewed by external readers for possible inclusion in the Journal of Education Finance or as contributions to other symposia books or reviews.
