Held under patronage of the Rector of Warsaw School of Economics and Deans of Faculty of Law and Administration and Faculty of Economic Sciences of the University of Warsaw, 4th Polish Law & Economics Conference is the subsequent major academic event in the field of Law & Economics (Economic Analysis of Law) in Poland after the success of our previous conferences. The main aims of the Conference are to present the up-to-date academic achievements of the scientific movement of Law & Economics and provide an impulse for further development in this respect. By bringing together researchers from various countries 4th Polish Law & Economics Conference also provides a platform for cooperation between scholars in Poland, Central and Eastern Europe, and the rest of the world. In addition, this year’s Conference coincides with the 10th Anniversary of the Polish Association of Law & Economics (Polskie Stowarzyszenie Ekonomicznej Analizy Prawa – PSEAP), which has been actively supporting the development of Economic Analysis of Law in Poland since 2005.
Law & Economics 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, in particular in the United States, and has become an integral part of legal and economic education at the most prestigious universities in the world.
We look forward to meeting you in Warsaw!
