  • Call for Papers: RLE Special Issue on "Experiments in Law and Economics"

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to announce an upcoming Special Issue of the Review of Law & Economics (RLE) on “Experiments in Law and Economics” for which I will be serving as Guest Editor.

The Special Issue aims to highlight recent advances in experimental investigations in any topic related to Law and Economics. We invite original research that significantly contributes to understanding how individuals behave, including their responses to legal rules and institutional changes, using behavioral and experimental economics.

The Special Issue is open to:

• Any topic within the field of law and economics

• Any type of controlled experiment (including those in the lab, field, and online)

• Any sample (including diverse populations, contexts, and cultures)

We also welcome meta-analyses, methodological papers, and literature reviews related to experimental law and economics.

Contributions to this RLE Special Issue should be original work that has not been previously published and is not being submitted simultaneously for publication to another journal.

The submission deadline is March 15, 2024.

Starting on December 1, 2023, you can submit your paper directly via the RLE website: When submitting your manuscript, please indicate that your paper is for the Special Issue “Experiments in Law and Economics.”

All submissions will go through a standard peer-review process managed by the Guest Editors and are expected to meet the quality standards of articles published in the Review of Law & Economics.

The call for papers is also attached.

We are looking forward to receiving your submission!

Please reach out to me at if you have any questions.
