First Session

Nuno Garoupa  will present his co-authored research on regulation of the legal profession. He will address how far the deregulation of legal markets – such as the new rules on nonlawyer ownership of law firms - has altered the way in which legal services are delivered, and will provide recommendations regarding the way in which legal markets may better serve the public.

Second Session

Nuno Garoupa will reflect on his research journey throughout the years. He will provide fruitful advice on how to select a journal/review, how to increase the chances of getting a proposal published, and also how to deal with the inevitable drawbacks of research.
