The Institute for Law and Economic Policy (“ILEP”) is a public policy research and educational foundation whose mission is to preserve, study, and enhance investor and consumer access to the civil justice system.

ILEP organizes symposia, co-sponsored by law schools and attended by academics, jurists, and practitioners. Leading professors and law experts present papers on class actions, securities law, corporate governance, and consumer protection issues. Papers presented at these Symposia have been published in prestigious law reviews and cited by numerous courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court in Amgen, Halliburton and Morrison.

I have attended a great many legal programs over the years, but none that matched this one for the high quality, balance, diversity, expertise and brilliance of its panelists.” (Judge Jed A. Rakoff, commenting on ILEP/Fordham 2020 Symposium)
