Conferences and Workshops


June 2017 Engaged Scholarship in Law and Economics, University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law, hosted by Professor Frank Pasquale.
Among the questions for workshop discussion:
  • How can we re-orient law and economics toward democratic justice and inclusive prosperity?  Are universalistic programs (such as “Medicare for All” and “Free College”) the natural successors to the ACA and income-based repayment programs?
  • How can we further develop and support connections among legal academics, lawyers, policymakers, and economists whose work pushes beyond neoliberal boundaries?
  • How can we promote better legal rules in response to systemic problems of inequality, exclusion, and insecurity?
