Description
Introduction to key theories, concepts, tools of economic analysis of law, as well as investigation into their relevance to contemporary social and legal issues, by examining the key components of national and international legal systems, with the focus on differences between American and European approach to the same issues. Although certain important and rather complex economic issues are discussed during the course, it does not require a background in economics. Rather, the course aims to help in understanding the nature of the relationship between the law and the economics in the evolution of contemporary legal systems. The course is built with a balance of historical and theoretical approaches in the study of practical issues, such as transaction costs, externalities, competition, game theory, welfare state and public choice theory.
