2d International Meeting in Law & Economics

On June 11-12, 2015

University Paris 2 Panthéon – Assas
12, Place du Panthéon – 75005 Paris

The organization of this international workshop devoted to Law & Economics aims to establish an annual meeting in order to attract top Law & Economics scholars on a regular basis in Ile-de-France, and 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. 8 thematic sessions of 2 papers each are planned, with a large panel of topics including:

  • Economics of Procedures
  • Law, Finance, and Contracts
  • Economics of Litigations
  • Environmental Law
  • Law Enforcement and Economics of Crime
  • Experimental Law & Economics
  • Constitutional and Political Economics
  • Intellectual Property and Innovation
