Journal of Law and Economics

Editors: Dennis W. Carlton, John P. Gould, Anup Malani, Sam Peltzman, and Richard Holden

Aaron Director founded the Journal of Law and Economics in 1958. One of Ronald Coase’s goals in joining the Law School faculty in 1963 was to use the journal to bridge between economics and the law. The JLE publishes research on a broad range of topics including the economic analysis of regulation and the behavior of regulated firms, the political economy of legislation and legislative processes, law and finance, corporate finance and governance, and industrial organization. The JLE has published some of the most influential and widely cited articles in these areas. The journal is published quarterly.
