ACLE Law Seminar Series on Economic Evidence in Legal Procedures

ACLE Law Seminar Series on Economic Evidence in Legal Procedures

Dear all,

In continuation of the concept of a common theme in our seminar series, the ACLE is proud to announce that the legal series of the Law and Economics lectures for the coming academic year will centre around Economic Evidence in Legal Procedures. This sub-series is produced bij Saskia Lavrijssen and Adrienne de Moor-van Vugt.
Emphasis will be on the application of economics in competition law, regulatory and IP infringement procedures. How do national courts and regulators assess economic evidence in court? What has been the role of and influence of expert witnesses and economic reports in procedures like the Microsoft and Google cases? What is the standard of proof for proving competition problems and infringements of competition law? And for IP law? Is there a difference between the way UK, Dutch, European and US Courts deal with these issues? What are relevant economic priciples for compensation of competition law and IP infringements? What kind of economic principles play a role in compulsory IP licencing? And what are alternative forms of compensation for the use of copy rights in (out of court) procedures?

Distinguished scholars have committed to contribute. Please find the agenda below.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the discussion.
