NLU Delhi in association with the Indian Association of law and economics is organizing the 8th International Conference on Law and Economics from November 12 to 13, 2022 and is making a call for papers.


Established in 2008, the National Law University Delhi is a premier law university in India that aims to evolve and impart comprehensive and interdisciplinary legal education. The university aims to shape its students as instruments of change who will be equipped to address the imperatives of the new millennium while upholding constitutional values. It takes pride in its effective and impact-driven research and scholarship that has brought both national and international recognition to its name.


The Indian Association of Law and Economics Association (IALE) was formed at the International Conference on Law and Economics, on 3-4 September 2016 at IIT Kanpur. At the said conference, IALE was conceptualized by the Consortium of Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar and the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmadabad. The Association works on socio-economic-legal and technological challenges relevant at the National and International levels through research initiatives and policy research through conferences, seminars and workshops.


The field of economic analysis of law or the microeconomic analysis of efficiency in particular has arguably emerged as one of the influential theories of jurisprudence since the 1960s. The discipline has been steadily making inroads into India as scholars and policy-makers note how comparative law lends itself to the comparative economic analysis of law. Law and Economics have come to be more closely related in the globalized world. While the language and reasoning of economic analysis started appearing in the Indian courts only recently, the discipline can provide relevant and deeper insights to a number of contemporary Indian legal issues. Economics renders a practical way of assessing the effectiveness of laws and policy which further assists the state in achieving the objective of economic development and overall growth. Hence, it is essential to acknowledge the related law and economics shared in the new world order.


The two-day Eighth International Conference on Law and Economics is being jointly organized by the National Law University, Delhi (NLUD) & Indian Association of Law and Economics (IALE) and will be held on November 12th – 13th, 2022.
