The Economics Institute for Judges is the LEC’s flagship program. It addressed fundamental economic issues that are often at the heart of legal disputes. Through intensive classroom lectures and discussions, judges were given a solid grounding in economics, finance, and statistics. The practical relevance of these disciplines is emphasized through the interactive analysis of numerous cases. Instructors were Scalia Law professors who specialize in teaching economics concepts to audiences that have no prior exposure to economics.
