Students and lecturers from Law & Economics will tell you what you can expect from this minor.
Class meets once a week for two hours. Attendance is Mandatory. Classes are taught in English according to the Socratic method typical of US law schools. Students will be asked to prepare in advance on a judicial decision or an academic publication, which will then be examined in detail during the following class. Economic principles will be distilled from actual legal cases or practices. Classes will be interactive with most of the time devoted to questions and critical appraisal of existing theories and empirical analysis. L&E III consists of a short research paper.
