About this event

Andrei Shleifer will discuss the reforms in laws and regulations around the world in the past 25 years.

Research starting about 25 years ago uncovered a set of empirical regularities relating commercial laws and regulations across countries to their legal traditions. Subsequent work explored possible interpretations of the evidence, including Hayek's evolutionary theory of common law.

Professor Andrei Shleifer will discuss the reforms in laws and regulations around the world in the past 25 years and their lessons for the interpretation of the evidence.

Professor Niamh Moloney will chair the event.

The event is free and open to all. No ticket or pre-registration is required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For any queries please contact Irina Zaraisky.

For further information please contact Lubala Chibwe, by email: l.chibwe@lse.ac.uk.

This event will take place in Hong Kong Theatre, CLM 01, Ground Floor, Clement House, LSE, 99 Aldwych, London WC2B 4JF.
