THE PRACTICE

COMMITTMENTS

For Law

Every two years, the Vogel Prize is awarded to authors and researchers in the field of economic law in the broadest sense (competition, distribution, consumer affairs, regulation, internal market law, law & economics) whose work puts legal rules into perspective in order to stimulate innovation in practice.

A prize rooted in economic activity

What is the aim of the Vogel Prize?

The law is an indispensable source of inspiration for social debates and reform, to which it provides concrete, useful answers in daily life. This role must be given greater recognition. Our aim is to encourage and reward those who, through their research and critical analysis, help to place the law at the heart of society.

This openness is all the more essential in view of the fact that France is lagging behind in the number of doctoral students, preventing us from playing our role on the international stage and doing justice to the richness of our academic training. The Prize rewards a book published within the last two years, in French or English, and devoted to one of the most important fields for society: economic law. The aim is to put the law back at the heart of society, by highlighting the role played by lawyers as social engineers, and by rewarding books or professional theses rooted in societal issues.

Distinguishing tomorrow's excellence

The Vogel Prize is awarded to authors and researchers in economic law (competition, distribution, consumer affairs, regulation, internal market law, law & economics) whose work puts legal rules into perspective to enable innovations in practice.
