AGEP Workshop on the Law & Economics of the Sharing Economy

Welcome to the the Law and Economics Center

Event Details


The rise of the Internet and sharing economy is transforming local and global commerce and forcing us to reconsider traditional approaches to regulation. To ensure that the new economy is governed appropriately, regulators and law enforcement officials must understand how it differs from traditional business arrangements and how consumers, entrepreneurs, and workers interrelate within these new commercial arrangements. This one-day program for Attorneys General staff lawyers will offer an in-depth tutorial on the economic underpinnings of the new economy and provide the tools needed to analyze and think critically about this emergent issue.

Participants at the AGEP Workshop on the Law & Economics of the Sharing Economy will also attend the LEC Public Policy Conference on Regulatory Transparency, to be held on Friday, February 2, 2017, at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School.
