Course Details

Colloquium: Law and Economics

This is an advanced seminar that will focus on cutting-edge research in law and economics. In eight class weeks, we will host a faculty workshop during which a leading scholar will present a paper. On other weeks we will have general lecturers, by ourselves or other Northwestern faculty on empirical research in law, and on selected topics in law and economics. The papers in the workshops will primarily involve empirical research, but may also include some theoretical (modeling) papers, and more traditional "talk" papers, within the general ambit of law and economics. Students who would like to complete the 2 draft writing requirement and earn one additional credit hour in this course will be able to self-enroll in the associated LAWWRT 602 Section 3 course section (class nbr 118784) during open enrollment August 26-September 25, 2015.
