:: Calls :: The 9th MetaLawEcon workshop “Economic Law and Economic Theory: Defining the Domain of ‘Law and Economics‘”, to be held on 12-13 December 2018 at the European University Institute (EUI) near Florence, welcomes abstracts from scholars and practitioners interested in exploring the commonalities between economic law and economic theory. The deadline for abstract submission is on 30th June 2018.

You can find more information about the workshop and guidelines for abstract submission here.

The aim of the 9th MetaLawEcon workshop is to discuss how we can theoretically account for the relationship between economics and what is called “economic law”. It will also provide a forum for reflection on how this interaction plays out in legislative, regulatory, judicial and academic practice. A better understanding of the dynamic between economic law and economic theory not only contributes to a clearer semantics of the term “economic” but yields important insights about the potential and limitations of formulating “Law and Economics” as a distinct approach to law.
