Case Analysis Seminar


Event Details


The LEC’s Case Analysis Seminars are designed to illustrate the way economic concepts and principles are applied in litigation and judicial decisions. Over two days of classes, judge participants and our expert faculty jointly study over a dozen real legal cases and discuss the economic concepts contained in them, such as transaction costs and opportunity costs, accurate calculation of damages, asset valuation, and bargaining theory and the structuring of effective incentives.

Discussion is guided by Judge Douglas Ginsburg, DC Circuit Court of Appeals, Dean Henry Butler of the Antonin Scalia Law School, and Joshua Wright, former FTC Commissioner and professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School.

The small-group roundtable format is an excellent way for judges to develop a better understanding of the way economic issues will arise in their courtrooms and how to use economic principles in their decision making.
