Certificate Course: Economic Analysis of Regulation, [March 6, 2017 to March 10, 2017]

The Centre for Law & Economics is

 organizing a Certificate Course on Economic Analysis of Regulation.
About the Course:
 

After the last economic crisis, calls for more “regulation”, especially in financial markets, were widespread both at the national and the international level. To avoid the occurrence of such crisis, it is argued that more regulations are required. Regulations are indeed tools to shape economic systems. As such, they have tremendous impacts on economic growth and the well-being of population. If the content of regulations is to be known when strategies are considered, it is especially crucial for both lawyers and policy makers to understand the foundations of these regulations. For lawyers, it helps to develop innovative interpretations and powerful arguments; for policy makers to understand the consequences and the inherent limits of their actions while also providing tools to apprehend and criticize existing regulations. This course will inquire into the reasons for regulations, the options that are available when a regulation is considered, their limits and the strategies to deal with them. 

 

The course will cover one week, and it starts from Monday, March 6, 2017 & ends on Friday, March 10, 2017
