SULaw's Summer Programme


The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to Law and Economics, including its relation to political economy and public policy. The seminars explore key concepts that form the foundation of Law and Economics as a field of study, some of its different perspectives and potential limits. They aim at practical aspects, with a particular focus on how to deal with tensions between public and private interests. The seminars also deal with other fields and their relation with Law and Economics through the analysis of selected articles and case studies.
