5th GNLU INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LAW, ECONOMICS, AND PUBLIC POLICY – MARCH 2022
The subject of ‘Law & Economics’ or ‘Economic Analysis of Law’ is concerned with the interface between the subjects of Law & Economics. It permits the greater use of economic tools and concepts to examine and understand the law in addition to recognising the importance of law to the analysis of the economy. Today, the field of Law & Economics has expanded and transformed subjects such as property, contracts, torts, criminal law and procedure, constitutional law, administrative law, environmental law, family law, etc. Moreover, with further restrictions around the world due to
COVID-19, economic policies have evolved impacting major sectors. This calls for a general theme of law and economics for this International Conference.
The inherent advantage of this field is that its objective nature permits the legal system to function rationally and more efficiently. Besides, it provides a useful normative standard for evaluating law and policy. Law & Economics is a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary field that applies tools from microeconomic theory to legal rules and structures so as to explain their functioning, evaluate their performance and prescribe alternative rules and structures so as to create optimum social outcomes. Law & Economics has seen prolific development in various jurisdictions and has elicited startling results that have changed the way we look at and run our legal systems, winning scholars a number of accolades, notably including the Nobel Prize in Economics.
This calls for a general theme of law and economics for this International Conference. With further restrictions around the world due to COVID-19, economic policies have evolved impacting major sectors. The study of the impact of these policies needs academic deliberation.
