We organise informal lunch seminars most weeks. The topics range from traditional company law discussions to blue-sky thinking about how to make the world a better place. The seminars may be anything from work-in-progress papers or research proposals, tentative ideas for thesis topics from our master students or PhD candidates, to presentations of research results. We welcome guest presenters.

We also regularly organise workshops and larger conferences. Follow this website for more information, or sign up to our newsletter.
