Mannheim Law & Economics Forum (MaLEF)

Mannheim Law & Economics Forum (MaLEF)

The law and economics movement has been a long-time success story of interdisciplinary research. One major challenge for collaboration is to maintain an ongoing exchange of ideas between lawyers and economists. The Mannheim Law & Economics Forum (MaLEF) offers a venue for such discourse at the University of Mannheim and the ZEW. It brings outstanding researchers to a truly interdisciplinary audience of both lawyers and economists to discuss new developments in the field.

Time & Location

MaLEF presentations are usually taking place on Thursday from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. in L7, 3-5, 68161 Mannheim, room S031. To receive information on upcoming presentations and last-minute changes, please write an e-mail to with the subject "subscribe".
