Avishalom Tor (Notre Dame) is the new Director of The Notre Dame Research Program on Law and Market Behavior (ND LAMB).
Mission: The Research Program on Law and Market Behavior (ND LAMB) at Notre Dame Law School is dedicated to promoting foundational research that contributes to scholarly and policy thinking about a range of important and timely issues at the intersection of law and market behavior. Specifically, ND LAMB promotes high-impact, interdisciplinary research across a number of interrelated legal fields that study these issues—most notably, corporate governance, antitrust, intellectual property, property and contract, and market regulation more generally. In pursuing its research agenda, the Program draws extensively on relevant extra-legal research in disciplines ranging from psychology to economics, business, and beyond. ND LAMB focuses, moreover, on promoting original legal scholarship that emphasizes observational and experimental empirical methods, through conferences, workshops, visitors and speakers, research support and collaborations with relevant programs and institutes worldwide.
