"Just Nudge"

NudgeNight 2022

Nudging & Law
The NudgeNight 2022 arranges itself around Nudges with reference to the public right and private right, which are to lead among other things to rule-conformal behavior of the citizens, better consumer protection or more lasting building.

Nudging & Law

The motto of the NudgeNight 2022 is „Just Nudge“.

Legal scholars in Germany still have a hard time with interventions based on behavioral interventions - which are not legally binding. However, "nudges" can provide - not only to the public sector - a less "intervention-intensive" control instrument.

Nudges presented by students in selected application areas related to public law and private law, including more rule-compliant citizen behavior, better consumer protection, or more efficient construction, serve as a basis for discussion.

We are in dubio pro nudging!

Guest Lecture

Gudrun Schäpers

This year, HSHL hosted a very special guest lecture in which Gudrun Schäpers, President of the Higher Regional Court of Hamm, addressed the question, "Why do we obey the law?".
The lecture showed what reasons there are for individuals to comply with law and laws. In this context, there was also an intensive discussion about #Nudges and how they can complement laws.

Supporting Expert

Johannes Keders

Johannes Keders worked as a judge for a long time and was President of the Higher Regional Court of Hamm for more than 11 years until his retirement in 2020.

He supported us this semester with advice and critique on our nudges and always offered good food for thought because of his legal perspective, which differed significantly from our behavioral economics perspective.
