The Board supports the study programs of Bachelor and of Master of Arts in Law and Economics at the University of St. Gallen conceptually. The Board also ensures that additional funds from within the Board and/or from third parties are employed for purposes of financing the study programs and any related research. Finally, it serves as a platform for orientation and discussion with regard to the relationship between the fields of Economics and of Law.
The Board is composed of nationally and internationally renowned personalities from diverse fields of politics, business and academia.
The Board holds annual meetings during which discussions are held on statutory, business and sponsorship matters and debates are conducted on economic and legal questions. The further development of the Law and Economics approach of the Law and Economics Foundation is inspired and encouraged through presentations and colloquia at the intersection of Law and Economics.
