The LEC Workshop for Law Professors on the Economics of Information, Advertising, Privacy, and Data Security introduced law professors to the economics of information, including concepts such as search costs, adverse selection, signaling, and screening. The program covered the economics of privacy, data security, and online advertising, as well as an understanding of how the First Amendment applied to these regulatory fields. The program was designed to provide law professors with a grounding in these economic concepts underlying much of modern consumer protection law so that they could be used for research and teaching.
