Economic Analysis of Law 2014

This course will be taught by a number of faculty, including some economists.  It is designed inthe following way. The first trhee sessions are designed to introduce you to the seminal literature and the key insights of law and economics.  we then have selected a range of topics that illustrate how these insights can be utilised in helping understand various legal issues.  we will close teh course with a debate on the value (if any) of the economic approach to law.

The idea behind the course is to give you some familiaritywith the literature and confidence in applying this literature in a non technical way.  One doe snot need a PhD in economics to carry out some basic economic analysis, or to integrate those insights into a piece of research.  The course is taught in this spirit and is an inviattion to think about the nature of the subject.
