The Centre for Market and Economic Law (CME) is a Research Centre at the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen.
CME engages in research into the legal aspects of the use of markets as the basis for the social model known in Denmark and in the Western world.
The Centre for Market and Economic Law is established on the basis of the view that the market economy and markets are essential components of the social structure and of the regulation of the conditions for business life. Businesses operate in the market, and there is therefore an inherent connection between markets and businesses. CME carry out research into the legal consequences of this, both into whether the existing regulations are sufficient and appropriate and into the consequences of applying market mechanisms in areas that have not previously been subject to market conditions, or at least not to their full extent.
