Through its flagship two-week Economics Institute for Judges, the Mason Judicial Education Program focuses on fundamental issues that often are at the heart of legal disputes. Over two weeks of intensive classroom lectures and discussion, judges are given a solid grounding in economics, finance and scientific method.
The two program weeks must be taken in order, but not taken back to back. Four Economics Institutes for Judges and two Advanced Economics Institutes for Judges are offered each year. Attendance is limited to 40 judges at the Economics Institute for Judges and to 75 judges at the Advanced Economic Institutes for Judges. The first week is offered at the Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia.
