Law & Economics Society

The Law & Economics society is dedicated to bridging the gap between two major disciplines in our society: law and economics. With the rise of platforms and big tech companies such as Facebook and Google, the combination of these disciplines is more relevant than ever. Connected to the Master's program Law & Economics of Utrecht University, we aim to organise relevant activities for anyone interested in competition and market regulation. Of course, interested bachelor students are also welcome!

De Law & Economics society zet zich in om een brug te slaan tussen twee belangrijke disciplines in onze samenleving: recht en economie. Door de opkomst van platforms en grote (tech) bedrijven zoals Facebook en Google, is de combinatie van deze disciplines relevanter dan ooit. We zijn gekoppeld aan de masteropleiding Law & Economics van de Universiteit Utrecht en organiseren relevante activiteiten voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in vraagstukken over mededinging en marktregulering. Uiteraard zijn ook geïnteresseerde bachelorstudenten van harte welkom!
