About the Institute
The Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics at UCL (The
Jevons Institute), set up in 2006, constitutes a policy forum and a meeting point between academia and practice with the aim to:
- stimulate debate concerning the application of competition law and industry regulation to the marketplace; and
- promote interaction among academic scholars in law and economics, policymakers and enforcement officials, the judiciary, practitioners and business leaders.
Our approach in this area of law and policy is based on a strong interaction between legal principles and analysis and applied economic theory and empirics. Research in the area of competition law & policy is conducted in the context of the Centre for Law, Economics and Society
The Jevons Institute has been named after William Stanley Jevons, one
of the foremost economists of the 19th Century. Read
