Association for the Promotion of Political Economy and the Law
Meet our Members
We aim to bring together academics, policy professionals, and advocates to develop a law and economics capable of responding to the urgent challenges of our time. Our projects engage law with new and revived economic thinking focused on how to better advance shared prosperity, democracy, sustainability and justice.
We understand law and economy as mutually constituted and inherently interdependent, so that questions about economics inevitably require judgments about justice and political ideals or institutions. Economics cannot provide law with simple and unidirectional expertise about impartial “market forces” because these forces are fundamentally intertwined with the power and principles of law and government. We further believe new economic thought and policy will benefit from deeper connections with law scholars, students, and legal professionals, given the central role of law in promoting economic ideas and in shaping and implementing economics in policy and practice.
We are incorporated as a non-profit, and we are in the process of applying for tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) organization.
We welcome members interested in supporting our goals for advancing legal economic research, education, and policy toward inclusive prosperity, democracy and justice.
