The  22nd Annual  Conference of the European Association of Law and
Economics (EALE) was held September 15-17, 2005 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This
was  the second conference in a  former communist  European  country,
confirming the expansion of the field of Law and Economics to the former
eastern bloc. Katarina Zajc of the Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana,
coordinated the excellent local organization. This was also the first conference
organized by the new EALE   Board  of Management  elected at the 2004
conference in Zagreb: Hans-Bernd Schaefer (President), Nuno Garoupa (Vice-
President), Henrik Lando and Fernando G6mez (Members of the Board), and
Jochen Bigus (Secretary).
At  the Ljubljana conference, 49 papers (a small fraction of the submitted
papers) were presented covering a wide range of topics representing the subject
of Law  and Economics in a broad sense. The scientific committee for the
conference consisted of the Board of Management,  assisted by several
anonymous  referees. A transparent process for paper selection was developed
to assure not only the highest scientific quality, but also diversity in topics and
the backgrounds of presenters (economists and lawyers).
Invited lectures were delivered by Thomas Ulen, from the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, on Happiness and Law and Economics, and
by Helmut  Koziol, from the University of Vienna, on Harmonization of
European Tort Law. The latter was followed by a roundtable with Roger van
