Law and Market Behavior

The Research Program on Law and Market Behavior at Notre Dame Law School (ND LAMB) is dedicated to promoting foundational research that seeks to influence the way scholars and policymakers think about a range of timely legal and policy issues at the intersection of law and market behavior. Specifically, ND LAMB explores interdisciplinary research across a number of interrelated legal fields including corporate governance, antitrust, intellectual property, property and contract law, and the legal regulation of individuals and firms in the market.

The Program draws extensively on relevant legal research in empirical disciplines from psychology and economics to business and beyond. ND LAMB focuses on promoting original legal scholarship that emphasizes observational and experimental methods by organizing international conferences, panel discussions, and roundtable workshops; inviting distinguished speakers and visiting researchers; providing targeted research support to LAMB Faculty Fellows; and developing collaborations with relevant programs and institutes worldwide.
