About EALE

Law and Economics (L&E), also known as the Economic Analysis of Law, is one of the most rapidly growing fields in legal and economic research. This approach applies economic concepts to explain and clarify legal issues, not only with respect to narrowly defined ‘economic’ fields, such as competition and economic law, but also to legal fields that concern a wide variety of non-market activities, from liability issues to family matters and crime.

European Association of Law and Economics, founded in 1984, stimulates the development of Law and Economics in Europe, providing assistance to L&E scholars and bringing their scholarship to a wider audience, including policy makers, legislators and judges.
