The Institute for Regulatory Law & Economics

The Institute for Regulatory Law & Economics (IRLE) is dedicated to enhancing regulatory decisionmaking through educating regulators about the legal and economic foundations of regulation.

The IRLE draws on the expertise of leading academics, practitioners and scholars. The purpose is to teach economic principles and concepts, and to apply them to regulatory situations in network industries. The IRLE covers methods of economic analysis such as neoclassical economics, transaction cost economics, new institutional economics and public choice theory.

Presentations from past IRLE conferences are available here.
