BSLW 8801 Law Economics and Public Policy (Summer: 3 )
Can we be optimistic about our future as phrases such as "new normal" and "austerity measures" take hold of our national psyche? Is there reason for hope after the Great Recession has substantially altered the global economic landscape? This interdisciplinary course employs law, economics, and public policy as essential -- and inseparable -- frameworks for understanding many of the most critical and current challenges facing our nation and world. Students will examine legal cases and policy disputes while working together to think about solutions to critical issues they will soon be called to address as leaders, businesspersons, and citizens.
