Law and Economics

Law and Economics

Professor Louis Kaplow, Professor Steven Shavell
Fall 2013 seminar
T 5:00pm - 6:30pm in Hauser Hall Room 102
2 classroom credits

This seminar will provide students with an opportunity to engage with ongoing research in the economic analysis of law. At most of the meetings, invited speakers--some from the Law School--will present works in progress. Students are required to submit, before sessions, brief written comments on the papers to be presented. Enrollment in either or both terms is permitted. Some background in economics or law and economics is helpful; however, knowledge of technical economics is unnecessary.

Note: In order to meet accreditation requirements, two three-hour evening sessions will be held during the term, schedule to be determined.

Subject Areas: Business Organization, Commercial Law, and Finance, Disciplinary Perspectives & Law, Legal & Political Theory
