The International Center for Law & Economics is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research center. Working with a roster of more than fifty academic affiliates and research centers from around the globe, we develop and disseminate academic output to build the intellectual foundation for rigorous, economically-grounded policy.
Our primary activity is the funding, organization, management, and networking of our resident staff and affiliated scholars and centers. We also develop research programs, provide high-quality policy analysis, and organize conferences, roundtables, and symposia.
As an independent, privately funded research organization, ICLE does not accept government grants, is not attached to a university, and does not do “contract” research. Our resident scholars and affiliates address the issues they believe to be most pressing in the context of our shared mission. We are supported in our efforts by affiliated institutions, industry partners, and individuals who believe in our mission and in our ability to fulfill it.
ICLE’s work is dedicated to the memory of Armen Alchian (1914-2013) and Henry G. Manne (1928-2015).
