About Conference 2

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd Polish Law & Economics Conference.

Held under patronage of the Deans of Faculty of Law and Administration and Faculty of Economics of the University of Warsaw, 2nd Polish Law & Economics Conference is the subsequent major academic event in the field of Law & Economics in Poland after the success of 1st Polish Law & Economics Conference organized in May 2010. The main aims of the Conference are to present the up-to-date academic achievements of Polish and European Law & Economics and provide an impulse for further development in this respect. Additionally, the Conference is a unique opportunity to present Polish Law & Economics to an international audience. By bringing together researchers from various countries 2nd Polish Law & Economics Conference also provides a platform for cooperation between Law & Economics researchers in Poland, Central and Eastern Europe, and the rest of the world.

Law & Economics (Economic Analysis of Law) is a relatively young interdisciplinary research program applying economic concepts to explain and clarify legal issues, not only with respect to antitrust and economic law, but also to a wide range of non-market activities, from liability rules to family matters and crime. Law & Economics has influenced legislation and case law, particularly in the United States and European Union, and has become an integral part of legal and economic education at the most prestigious universities in the world.

In Poland, where the quality of legislation is often regarded as a serious obstacle to the functioning of the society and development of the economy, the Law & Economics movement has a particularly important role to play. Studies in this field have been developing in Poland for the last few years, with the University of Warsaw being a forerunner and one of the leading institutions in this respect. Since 2005 the development of Economic Analysis of Law in Poland has been supported by the Polish Association of Law & Economics (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Ekonomicznej Analizy Prawa – PSEAP).

We look forward to meeting you in Warsaw!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee

Dr. Katarzyna Metelska-Szaniawska
