Sobre o Evento

The Chicago/FGV Forum in Law and Economics in Brazil

The Chicago/FGV Forum in Law and Economics in Brazil offers a four-week lecture series online, on “hot topics” in law and economics. The goal of the Forum is to introduce the audience to the most up-to-date thinking about major legal and policy issues. Each topic will be presented in an original lecture by a senior professor from the University of Chicago Law School, and then followed by lecture on that theme by a distinguished Brazilian expert in law and economics. The Forum is open to scholars, policymakers, judges, practitioners, and advanced students. Attendance is free.
