We are LawFin

The Center for Advanced Studies on the Foundations of Law and Finance is the first interdisciplinary economics and jurisprudential research group in Germany funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)). We bring together scholars from around the world from both fields and related disciplines who share the common view that intense interdisciplinary collaboration carries tremendous potential for widening our understanding of the interdependency of law and finance.
