Law & Contemporary Problems Symposium: The Relationship Between Law and Markets

May 6, 2016
Duke Law faculty will present works in progress relating to law and markets. This symposium will explore such questions as:

  • What are (or should be) the limits of markets?
  • To what extent, and how, should the legal system address market-driven inequalities in income, wealth, or access to goods and services (such as health care and education, among others)?
  • When does the law substitute for or correct imperfect markets?
  • When can market forces compensate for an absence of effective legal rules or remedies?
  • What are the conditions under which market enforcement and legal enforcement act as complements, rather than substitutes?

Scholarly papers will be presented in a symposium issue of Law & Contemporary Problems.
