Rotterdam (The Netherlands) ‐ September 28, 2018

Symposium and valedictory lecture in honour of Prof. Roger Van den Bergh

A grand theory about efficiency challenged by behavioural approaches. An increasing emphasis on empirical work that may sacrifice policy relevance on the altar of academic excellence. These are only two illustrations of the difficult choices that the European Law and Economics movement had to make at the many roundabouts of its academic life. In his valedictory lecture, Prof. Roger Van den Bergh will critically reflect on 30 years of research in Law and Economics.
