Areas covered will include torts, contracts, property, IP, criminal law, health law, insurance, business law, antitrust, and some public law topics. The course will focus on how law affects incentives and, ultimately, individual behavior. We will also discuss available empirical evidence regarding the link between law and behavior. No prior training in economics is required.
