Lucerne Graduate Academy for Law and Economics

The Lucerne Graduate Academy for Law and Economics is a biannual intensive one-week programme designed to introduce legal scholars and economists to the principles and current trends in the field of law and economics. The Graduate Academy will be conducted in collaboration with the Notre Dame Law School Research Program on Law and Market Behavior (ND LAMB).

The Graduate Academy course consists of three different parts: two main courses, three special lectures and research colloquia. The main courses will provide in-depth knowledge on selected law and economics topics by renowned professors in the field. The special lectures will be divided into three windows: one theoretical window in economics and two practical applications in business law.

Participants will also have the chance to gain hands-on experience by presenting their research in one of the Graduate Academy’s colloquia. These research colloquia will offer the opportunity for participants to share their research with a wider community of global scholars, as well as to obtain feedback and support from the Graduate Academy’s directors and lecturers. Participants will apply to present their research, and while time constraints will likely restrict the number of presentation slots available, all participants will be expected to attend their peers’ colloquia presentations.

The key target audiences for the Graduate Academy are professors, lecturers, and high quality post-doc and doctoral candidates in the fields of law, economics, and related human sciences, as well as any advanced international scholars and practitioners from the private or public sector. The courses will be conducted in English. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

The Second "Lucerne Graduate Academy for Law and Economics 2024" is going to take place from 24 - 28 June 2024.
