About the Conference

The field of economic analysis of law has arguably emerged as one of the influential theories of jurisprudence. The interdisciplinary subject provides relevant and deeper insights into a number of contemporary legal issues in India.

Laws are instruments for achieving important social goals. Economic analysis often takes for granted such legal institutions as property, contracts, torts, and administrative which affect the economy. The positive and normative economic analysis will be used to design incentive structure law and policy.

Economics renders a practical way of assessing the effectiveness of laws and policy which further assists the state in achieving the objective of economic growth and development. Hence, it is essential to acknowledge the relation that law and economics share in the new world order.

Keeping in view of techno-economic and legal challenges, especially offline and online markets and non-market interactions in cyber critical technologies, sustainable development, safety and security, there is a need for the generation and dissemination of knowledge.
