Center for Law, Economics, and Public Policy

 

The Center for Law, Economics, and Public Policy, founded in 2012, organizes workshops, conferences, and other scholarly activities in the area of law and economics, with a particular focus on the intersection between welfare economics and normative questions regarding legal frameworks, institutions and doctrines.  The Center is interdisciplinary, seeking to spark scholarly conversations and collaborations on these topics between the Duke Law School faculty; scholars in other schools or departments at Duke; and external faculty.  The Center also hopes to increase student interest in law and economics, and to be the basis for new seminars.
