UNAS 3333 Cross Currents: Thinking About Law and Economics (Fall: 1 )

Course Description

This seminar will explore how economic theory applies to positive and normative analyses of law, legal issues and legal systems. It will investigate how traditional economists analyze the law and how behavioral economists have challenged and complemented traditional economic theories in several real world situations. This seminar may be attractive, not only to students who are interested in careers in law and economics, but also to a wider audience of students who are intellectually curious about how law, economics and the psychology of decision-making and choice influence our daily lives.
