Course Details

Colloquium: Law and Economics

This is an advanced seminar that will bring together outside scholars, resident faculty, and Northwestern students for discussion of cutting-edge research papers in the law and economics tradition. On just over half of the weeks a workshop will be held at which a leading scholar will present a paper growing out of his or her research in the law and economics tradition. These workshops will be attended by members of the faculty of the School of Law, faculty from other schools and departments within and without Northwestern, and interested students. On weeks for which there is no outside speaker, the seminar will meet to review prior workshops and to discuss papers to be presented in later sessions. Students will be asked to write short critiques of each paper
