O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) is organizing Coase Brief Competition 2015 (CBC). CBC is the first of its kind, inter-disciplinary competition which aims to provide a platform for the participants to analyze and probe complex problems faced by governments, civil society, industry and mankind in general, in the form of a hypothetical case study. The 1st Jindal- Economic Laws Practice (ELP) Coase Brief Competition was successfully conducted on 25th April 2014, with the winners receiving a prize of INR 50,000.
The purpose of CBC is to provide a platform for different sections of academia and society to intellectually engage on issues whose viable solutions cannot be offered within narrowed silos of single academic discipline For this purpose, it aspires to bring together students from diverse disciplines and universities across the world to participate in the competition.
For example, a law student from NLS Bangalore could collaborate with a MBA Student in IIM Bangalore and also with a Humanities and Social Science student of Christ University. This helps engage students from different disciplines and courses to come together and collaborate on a common issue.
We are delighted to invite students pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate courses to participate in this first of its kind, intellectually engaging competition. The competition is named after Ronald Harry Coase, a British economist and author.
