Lucerne Graduate Academy for Law and Economics

(part of a series)

Location: University of Lucerne

The Lucerne Graduate Academy for Law and Economics will be held from 27 June - 1 July 2022 at the University of Lucerne. The aim of this annual intensive one-week programme is to introduce legal scholars, economists and practitioners to the principles and current trends in the field of law and economics. The Graduate Academy will be conducted in collaboration with the Notre Dame Law School Research Program on Law and Market Behavior.

Avishalom Tor, professor of law and director of the Notre Dame Research Program on Law and Market Behavior, and Jonathan Klick, professor of law at Penn Law Faculty, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia will be two of the main lecturers for the Graduate Academy.

The Graduate Academy course consists of three different parts: two main courses, three special lectures and research colloquia. The main courses will provide in-depth knowledge on selected law and economics fields by renowned professors in the field. The special lectures will be divided into three windows: one theoretical window in economics and two practical applications in business law.

Participants will also have the chance to gain hands-on experience by presenting their research in one of the Graduate Academy’s colloquia. These research colloquia will offer the opportunity for participants to share their research with a wider community of global scholars, as well as to obtain feedback and support from the Graduate Academy’s directors and lecturers. Participants will apply to present their research, and while time constraints will likely restrict the number of presentation slots available, all participants will be expected to attend their peers’ colloquia presentations.
