The researchers involved in this agenda all collaborate with students at the master and PhD level.

We strongly encourage candidates to explore various aspects of the themes listed under research.

PhD projects

PhD projects constitute a central part of the work under this agenda. Candidates are given a unique opportunity to explore important challenges from the perspective of both law and economics. The themes are highly relevant for the private sector, academic institutions and policy institutions in Norway as well as internationally.

We start 1-2 PhD projects yearly. For relevant PhD projects at NHH, see EEL website with PhD projects. For relevant PhD project in law, please contact Jon Petter Rui or Erling Hjelmeng.
