About the Seminar
GNLU Centre for Law & Economics is organising the One-day Seminar on Economic Analysis of Constitutional Law on Saturday, 21st September 2019.
“Would you say the government is run by a few people looking out for themselves or are working for the benefit of everyone?”
The economic study of constitutional law elaborates on this very pertinent question, by using public choice theory amongst other economic tools and revisiting classical legal doctrines and along with concepts which currently exist, for a holistic and fruitful understanding of the subject.
From democracy and the separation of powers to legislative intent and constitutional review, the seminar will focus on the main concepts and theories of the constitutional law and politics from an economics perspective, whilst making an attempt to answer this question, which is widely debated and there is growing discourse.
