Graduate School Methods Seminar

We are very excited to announce that the Graduate School is starting a new series of Graduate School Methods Seminars. The Methods Seminars are convened by Elvira Loibl, Monika Leszczyńska, Michele Ubertone, and Daniel On, with the goal of introducing members of our faculty, PhD candidates, Master’s Honours Research Track students, and other interested academics, to different methods being used to conduct legal research. In the seminars, guest speakers will present fundamentals, advantages, problems, and limits of a method that they are expert in. They will do this through the lens of their own research.

We hope that the Methods Seminars will become a space where members of different departments can meet to discuss common challenges related to the use of various legal research methods.  They are also meant to contribute to the broader discussion within our faculty about the quality of legal research. 

The next Graduate School Methods Seminar will take place on March 12, 2024 from 11.00-12.30 by Prof. Giovanni Tuzet.

Graduate School Methods Seminar by Prof. Giovanni Tuzet

This seminar will be based on a paper that aims at bringing conceptual clarity on the notions of effectiveness, efficacy, and efficiency of law. It claims that effectiveness, efficacy and efficiency are conceptually independent notions and independent properties of law: in the account presented here, the first concerns compliance with the law; the second the achievement of legal purposes; the third the legal allocation of economic resources. As a consequence, there can be law that is wanting in one or more of these respects. For instance, there can be law that is effective but neither efficacious nor efficient, or law that is effective and efficacious but not efficient. The presentation will also focus on different notions of efficiency of law.

The remaining sessions in April 2023 will be announced at a later point.
