Workshop: Law and Economics
LAWS 56012
This workshop, conducted over three sequential quarters, is devoted to the intensive examination of selected problems in the application of economic reasoning to a wide variety of legal questions. Workshop sessions will be devoted to the presentation and discussion of working papers by guests, most of whom are renowned faculty from other institutions. In addition to workshop sessions, which occur approximately every other week, there will be occasional discussion sessions, which will serve as opportunities for students to engage in in-depth, informal discussion of topics in law and economics with the instructor. This workshop does not require a research paper; grading is based on the completion of a series of reaction papers. Students interested in academic writing in law and economics are encouraged to use this workshop to develop their ideas. There will be 13 meetings of the workshop (5, 4, 4, in the three quarters, respectively). Students will be required to submit 12 reaction papers. Each reaction paper is 2-3 pages long, for a total of 24-36 pages. Students enrolled in the workshop receive three credits; one in Autumn, one in Winter, and one in Spring.
