The 5th conference of the French Association of Law & Economics will be held on October 15-16, 2020, at the University of Paris Nanterre (Max Weber Building).

The purpose of AFED is to provide a discussion forum for all researchers interested in this interdisciplinary approach. The Conference accepts original works in both disciplines, law and economics, on various topics including (not limited) : Asylum Law – Behavioural Law and Economics – Competition Law and Policy – Contract Theory and Contractual Regulation – Crime and Public Law Enforcement – Corporate Law and Governance – Environmental Law – Intellectual Property Law and Innovation Policy – Law and Finance – Law and Public Policy – Legal Rule-Making – Litigation and Disputes Resolution – Tort Law and Liability Rules – Predictive Justice.

The best two papers will be selected and published in a special issue of the European Journal of Law and Economics dedicated to « National Associations » in 2021.

Parallel sessions will be held in both English and French. Plenary sessions with round-tables and a « Job Market Forum» (specifically dedicated to PhD and master students) conducted by professionals should be planned.

However, due the current sanitary situation and the uncertainty surrounding the next academic year on the campus, the Conference could possibly take place online.

Local Organizers : Eliane Badaoui, Andreea Cosnita, Sophie Harnay, Eric Langlais, Nadine Levratto, Alessandro Melcarne, Benjamin Monnery, Saïd Souam (EconomiX CNRS & UPN) ; Katrin Deckert, Anne-Sophie Choné-Grimaldi (Centre du Droit Civil des Affaires et du Contentieux Economique, UPN).
