The Regulation and Business multidisciplinary workshop focuses on the study of regulatory approaches to markets and business. It investigates how such economic regulation should be designed in order to balance the interests of various constituencies. It also explores how traditional approaches to regulation compare, contrast, and intersect with emerging methodologies.
The workshop series features presentations by invited legal scholars of their works-in-progress. The workshop creates opportunities for scholars working on issues of economic regulation to discuss and present their research in a forum of academics working in related intellectual spaces.
The workshop is offered to Boston College JD and LLM students as a 1-credit seminar. Enrolled students will meet with BC Law faculty to discuss the works-in-progress being presented and will attend all workshops. This workshop is designed for students who are interested in publishing during law school and in legal scholarship more generally. It is also well suited for students with an interest in economic regulation, business, markets, and corporate governance.
