1st International Meeting in Law & Economics

EconomiX (UMR 7235 CNRS & University Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense) and its hosted research programme « Law, Institutions, Reglementation » will organize the

1st International Meeting in Law & Economics

March 20-21, 2014
Campus of the University Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, Building G, 6th floor, room 614
200, Avenue de la République – 92001 Nanterre cedex – FRANCE

Through the organization of this international workshop devoted to Law & Economics, EconomiX aims to establish a new meeting which will allow to attract top Law & Economics scholars on a regular basis in Nanterre, and which will promote sustained interactions with the French scholars also interested in these topics. The format retained of a workshop saves more time for each speaker, and enables longer discussions with the audience than what is nowadays possible during the international conferences in the field.

The registration for the workshop is closed
