Law and Economics Workshop

Workshops at Chicago have been the proving ground for new ideas in law and economics for several decades. They are the place where faculty from Chicago and elsewhere present new ideas and try out their latest papers.

Workshops are at 3:30 PM in Seminar Room F. Copies of most of the workshop papers will be available on this web site approximately one week before the workshop. If you wish to receive an e-mail copy of the workshop paper please contact Norma R. de Yagcier. Questions about the workshop schedule or availability of papers should be directed to Ms. de Yagcier by e-mail at or phone at 773-702-3142.
