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.
