Forum brings together FGV and University of Chicago specialists to debate law and economics
Starting on September 8, Fundação Getulio Vargas, through its Rio de Janeiro Law School and Sao Paulo Law School, in partnership with the Coase-Sandor Institute for Law and Economics at the University of Chicago, will hold the Chicago/FGV Forum in Law and Economics in Brazil. Over the course of four weeks, a series of free talks will take place, broadcast live on FGV’s YouTube channel, always on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 5 pm.
The forum will explore subjects such as “Law, Technology and Competition,” “Do Constitutional Rights Matter?” “Commercial and Insurance Law and Economics,” and “An Economic Approach to Consumer Contracts.”
Each of these topics will be presented in a talk by a senior professor from the University of Chicago Law School, followed by a talk on the same subject by a Brazilian specialist in law and economics from FGV’s Rio de Janeiro Law School or Sao Paulo Law School.
The event is open to academics, lawmakers, professionals, judges and students. All the talks will take place in English. For more information about the schedule and to sign up, click here.
