Law, Markets and Globalization

This seminar addresses various new legal issues arising under the current context of globalization, in particular after the recent financial crisis. It probes how nations have dealt with the unprecedented turbulence in the market through legal means and whether those legal responses have been both effective and legitimate. It deals with issues, such as international business, international trade, international business regulation, especially competition law and comparative law. In addition, the seminar will probe how non-legal disciplines, such as economics, political science, and sociology, investigate and understand legal phenomena in this area, and discuss whether and/or to what extent these non-legal analyses might complement legal analyses.
