Divisions

The Law & Economics Center is comprised of five divisions:

The Mason Judicial Education Program is the nation’s preeminent provider of high-quality, balanced judicial education seminars and conferences that focus on economics, finance, accounting, statistics, and scientific method. The LEC has been offering programs for judges since 1976.

The Henry G. Manne Program on Law & Economics Studies promotes law and economics scholarship by funding faculty research and hosting policy-relevant research roundtables and academic conferences and workshops that are designed to change the culture of scholarly discourse.

The Mason Attorneys General Education Program offers intellectually rigorous professional education programs that help state attorneys general and their senior-most staff attorneys improve their understanding of the economic concepts that underlie the regulatory and policy issues they address.

The Congressional Civil Justice Academy provides rigorous, balanced educational programs on a range of civil justice issues for the benefit of members of the US Congress, their staff members, and their constituents.

The Program on Economics & Privacy produces timely and original economic analysis of the privacy, data security, competition, and consumer protection issues intrinsic to the modern, digital economy. The program injects this analysis into policy discussions through active advocacy and by holding educational programs where scholars, thought leaders, and policymakers share research and insights.
