This seminar will focus on cutting-edge research in law and economics. In most of the classes, I will host a workshop during which a leading scholar will present a paper. In the weeks in which there is no outside speaker, the seminar will meet to discuss the papers that will be presented in the next three workshops. All students are required to write short critiques of the speakers' papers. Your critiques will be graded and made available to the speaker. Students will also be required to participate in some group presentations in which they explain the papers to be presented in the following weeks.
