This course is part of the 2022 Summer Program.

The course introduces students to the economic analysis of law. It explores what it means for the law to be efficient; the extent to which a quest for economic efficiency explains the development of the law (with a focus on property and torts due to the limited time); and the extent to which efficiency should affect the development of the law. The course includes a brief introduction to the tools of microeconomics and to the different 'schools' of economic thought.
