An Introduction to Law & Economics (FSL) (Module 3, Profile GRecht)


This course provides an introduction to law & economics. It is primarily based on a method of case analysis. Nearly all cases are published in Barnes, D.W./Stout, L.A. (1992), Cases and Materials on Law and Economics, St. Paul (West Publishing) (B/S 1992). Relevant cases are also provided in the material folder, groups 1 to 11.

All participants must choose one group to enrol (see group function of MyStudy). All groups are required to analyze a number of cases that illustrate the methods and functions of an economic analysis of the law. These cases must be presented in front of the class. The notes and questions (in Barnes/Stout) are a part of the case materials and may help to introduce the audience to the relevant law and economics arguments. Presentations must be uploaded to the material folder (Presentations) each Friday preceding the seminar, at 12.00 pm (noon). For example, group presentation 1 for April 4 must be made available to the class until Friday, April 1 , 12.00 pm (noon) the latest.

Participants can enrol in groups of two or three presenters. The endterm test will be held during the last session (4 July).

Ziel: Participation will provide an enhanced understanding of legal and economic methods and enable particpants to understand and undertake specific analyses in the field of law & economics.
