Often considered as "disruptive" of the established legal order, economic law is generally criticized for the lack of legal certainty to which it would lead. Does not the substantive analysis of economic law in fact run counter to the formal analysis which is a guarantee of legal certainty? However, the so-called substantial analysis seems to be gaining ground. Does this mean that legal certainty suffers?

This book, which follows a colloquium, aims to renew the terms of this debate, based on a cross study of economic law, comparative law and legal philosophy. While there is a need for legal certainty, "consubstantial" with the law, economic law manages to reconcile the need for stability and predictability with the need for adaptability.

It was time to rethink legal certainty in the framework of economic law.
