On April 14-15, 2016

Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Paris Nord

EconomiX (CNRS and Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense), 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 (Paris 13 Villetaneuse) will jointly organize the: 3rd International Meeting in Law & Economics

The organization of this international workshop dedicated 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, Economics of Competition Law, Tort Law and Liability Rules, Public Enforcement and Economics of Crime, Constitutional Law and Political Economics, Intellectual Property and Innovation, Contracts and Law.


Registering and paying the fees is mandatory before March 8, in order to attend the workshop; follow this link:
