Economics: From Classroom to Courtroom

This free-standing course will combine elements of the Judicial Education Program’s newly developed Introduction to Economics for Judges and its Case Analysis Seminar. Program days will alternate between lecture and seminar formats. On lecture days, a basic economic concept will be introduced and its applications to law and public policy presented. On seminar days, participants will break into smaller groups to thoroughly discuss cases considering the application of economic concepts introduced the previous day. Each case discussion will begin with a participant  overview of an assigned, reported case followed by an in-depth discussion of the economic concepts and their application to the case. These sessions are moderated by law and economics scholars with the expectation that all attendees will be fully prepared to participate in and contribute to the discussion.
