Center on Law and the Economy


The Center on Law and the Economy promotes interdisciplinary research and collaboration on important issues confronting policymakers and private markets in both developed and developing economies.  It is a rich resource for graduate, professional, and undergraduate students at Tulane who are interested in issues related to the regulation of economic and financial activity.

The Center on Law and the Economy was founded in 2019, building on nearly a decade of expanding collaboration between scholars in The Murphy Institute's Center for Public Policy Research and Tulane Law School.

Visiting Assistant Professorship

The Center on Law and the Economy funds a Visiting Assistant Professorship in Law, a two-year position offering exceptional early career legal scholars the opportunity to build a body of research in a dynamic, collegial, and collaborative environment.

Core Workshop

The Center's core workshop each semester features both Tulane and guest faculty in law, economics, and political science who present leading edge research in regulation, civil rights, and other key issues in law and the economy.
