GNLU Centre for Law & Economics announces Certificate Course on Economics of Constitutional Law

We feel immense pleasure to inform you that GNLU Centre for Law & Economics is going to organise a Certificate Course on the Economics of Constitutional Law. The Centre for Law & Economics is a centre of excellence for cutting-age research and training in the discipline of Law & Economics (also referred to as the Economic Analysis of Law). The centre since its inception has organised several certificate courses on Empirical and Qualitative research pertaining to the field of Law & economics. Having had given an exposure to the Chicago Model of Law & Economics, the Centre is now organising a certificate course on another aspect of the subject, i.e., Public Choice Theory. This forms the basis of an Economic Analysis of Constitutional Law.

About the Course: “Would you say the government is run by a few people looking out for themselves or are working for the benefit of everyone?” The economic study of constitutional law elaborates on this very pertinent question, by using public choice theory amongst other economic tools and revisiting classical legal doctrines and along with concepts which currently exist, for a holistic and fruitful understanding of the subject. From democracy and the separation of powers to legislative intent and constitutional review, the course centers around the main concepts and theories of the constitutional and politics from an economics perspective, while making an attempt to answer this question, which is widely debated and there is growing discourse.
