6th International Meeting in Law & Economics

April 18-19, 2019

Location : University Paris Nanterre, Campus of Nanterre,
Building Max Weber, 200 Avenue de la République, Nanterre, France
(RER Line A, station : Nanterre Université)





EconomiX (CNRS and Paris Nanterre), Paris Center for Law & Economics (Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas), the Laboratoire d’Economie Dionysien (Paris 8 Vincennes-St Denis), ERUDITE (Paris Est-Créteil), and the Center for Economics of Paris Nord (CNRS and Paris 13 Villetaneuse) will jointly organize the: 6th International Meeting in Law & Economics, on April 18-19, 2019. The workshop in 2019 will be organized on the Campus of Nanterre.


The organization of this international conference dedicated to Law & Economics aims at establishing an annual meeting in order to attract top Law & Economics scholars on a regular basis in Ile-de-France, and to promote sustained interactions with the French scholars also interested in these topics. The workshop consists in 8 thematic sessions of 2 papers; this allows each speaker to have 45 minutes in all, and enables longer discussions with the audience than what is nowadays possible during the international conferences in the field.

Submissions must be sent before January 14, 2019, in a pdf format, and by email to Eric.Langlais@parisnanterre.fr. Papers (completed, or at least in preliminary draft) using various methodologies (theoretical, empirical, or experimental) and related to any topics of Law & Economics are welcome, including: Economics of Procedures, Litigations, Law and Finance, Entrepreneurship, Economics of Competition Law, Tort Law and Liability Rules, Law Enforcement and Economics of Crime, Constitutional Law and Political Economics, Intellectual Property and Innovation, Contracts and Law.
