The Law for the Circular Economy seminar will revolve around the role of law in the circular economy, with particular emphasis on two important steps of the product’s life cycle, namely regulating the supply-chain and regulating repairing and sharing activities. These topics will be explored from the perspective of both policy and law. The academic discourse will be complemented by real-life company cases, where focus will be posed especially on the fashion industry.
