  • Certificate Course on Economic Analysis of Regulation by GNLU
    Gujarat National Law University, the Centre for Law Economics is organizing a Certificate Course on Economic Analysis of Regulation from Monday, March 6, 2017 & ends on Friday, March 10, 2017. 

    About the Course:

    After the last economic crisis, calls for more “regulation”, especially in financial markets, were widespread both at the national and the international level. To avoid the occurrence of such crisis, it is argued that more regulations are required. Regulations are indeed tools to shape economic systems. This course will inquire into the reasons for regulations, the options that are available when a regulation is considered, their limits and the strategies to deal with them.

    Tentative Course Content

    • Lecture 1: Why should we regulate?

    • Lecture 2: Regulatory strategies (I): CAC and economic incentives.

    • Lecture 3: Regulatory strategies (II): Soft law, nudges, self-regulation and regulation by information.

    • Lecture 4: How regulation can fail? Theory and practice.

    • Lecture 5: Impact assessment and the case for CBA.
