    Aims and Scope

    The Review of Law & Economics (RLE) is published in cooperation with the European Association of Law and Economics (EALE) and De Gruyter. The Review publishes theoretical and empirical interdisciplinary research in law and economics-related subjects. The Journal explores the various understandings that economic approaches shed on legal institutions. It specializes in the application to legal issues of insights developed in economic disciplines.

    Unlike traditional journals in law and economics, The Review of Law & Economics is published online, avoiding much of the delays and hassle of print publication. The electronic content in the journal appears continuously, as articles are accepted for publication. The journal also publishes two special issues at the end of every year, the first with papers from the European Association of Law and Economics annual symposium, and the second on a timely special topic.
