The Law and Economics movement is one of the most important intellectual developments within legal scholarship in recent decades. This approach applies economic concepts to explain and clarify legal issues and aspects, not only with respect to narrowly defined ‘economic’ fields, such as competition and economic law, but also to legal fields that concern a wide variety of non-market activities, from liability issues to family matters and crime. Thus, Law and Economics has become a central methodology for both positive and normative legal analysis; already it has influenced regulation, legislation, and case law. Many academic journals publish articles in the field, and Law and Economics has become an integral part of legal and economic education at the most prestigious universities.
The annual conference of Association for Sustainable Education, Research and Science dedicated to Law and Economics intends to become an important forum for the exchange of research findings and ideas. The conference has the purpose of providing assistance to law and economics scholars and bringing their scholarship to a wider audience, including policy makers, legislators and judges and intends to encourage further research in the different areas of Law and Economics such as:
Bankruptcy and Financial Regulation; Behavioral Law and Economics; Commercial Law; Competition Law; Constitutional and Administrative Law and Economics; Contract Law; Contracts and Contractual Regulation; Corporate Law and Economics and Corporate Governance; Criminal Law; Economics of the Legal Process; Environmental Law and Economics; European and International Law and Economics; Experimental Law and Economics; Family Law; Gender and Discrimination; Health Law; Intellectual Property and Innovation Policy; Labour and Employment Law; Law and Public Policy; Litigation, Dispute Resolution and the Legal Process; Market and Non-market Regulation; Property Law; Public and Administrative Law; Tort Law and Compensation.
