The Joint Seminar is organized by the universities of Prague, Maastricht, Rotterdam (Erasmus School of Law) and the European Doctorate in Law & Economics (EDLE). The 16th Joint Seminar ‘The Future of Law and Economics’ will be organized at Charles University Prague on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 April 2024.

In March 2009, PhD students working on topics with respect to the economic analysis of law (also law and economics) came together in Paris as a result of a cooperation between the universities of Maastricht, Paris, Erasmus School of Law and the European Doctorate in Law and Economics (EDLE). The idea was to provide a forum to PhD students to present their ongoing PhD research and receive feedback from senior law and economics scholars from the other institutions as well as from their colleagues. This first seminar was a great success whereby it was considered very fruitful to have this mutual exchange of ideas and stimulating criticisms.

Since the beginning the organizing partners changed, but the title of this joint seminar remains 'The Future of Law and Economics', symbolizing the fact that the PhD candidates constitute the future of Law and Economics and realizing that much of the research they undertake is in fact path-breaking and innovative.

The seminar is open to all interested PhD students and researchers affiliated to the organizing universities and the EDLE. By planning your trip, please take into account that the Joint Seminar will take the full Thursday and end on Friday around 16:00.
