Colloquium: Law and Political Economy

In this colloquium, students will review and comment upon leading scholarship from the fields of law, political science and economics that relates to the lawmaking processes of courts, agencies, Congress and the President. The goal is to become informed of the rich scholarship on law and politics, decide its relevance to legal practitioners, and to evaluate its contribution to our more general understanding of law. Six leading scholars will present their work during the semester. Students will write 3-page reports for each of the papers presented. These reports will both summarize and critically analyze the scholarship presented.
