The University of Chicago Law School/FGV Forum in Law and Economics in Brazil offers a four-week lecture series online, on “hot topics” in Law and Economics. The goal of the Forum is to introduce the audience to the most up-to-date thinking about major legal and policy issues. Each topic will be presented in an original lecture by a Senior Professor from the University of Chicago Law School, and then followed by lecture on that theme by a distinguished FGV Law School (DIREITO RIO and DIREITO SP) expert in Law and Economics. The Forum is open to scholars, policymakers, judges, practitioners, and advanced students.

Program will be live-streamed on YouTube.  Links are posted below.
