Event Details

  • Date:
  • Venue: Hazel Hall, George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School
  • Division: The Henry G. Manne Program on the Law and Economics

The 2020 Supreme Court Economic Review Research Roundtable will focus on the “Economics of Criminal Procedure, Punishment, and their Consequences.” Through a series of academic paper presentations and accompanying discussions, attendees will work together to refine and focus scholarly works that will be featured for publication in the forthcoming edition.

The Supreme Court Economic Review is an interdisciplinary journal that provides a forum for scholarship in law and economics, public choice, and constitutional political economy. Its approach is broad ranging and contributions will employ explicit or implicit economic reasoning for the analysis of legal issues, with special attention to Supreme Court decisions, the judicial process, and institutional design. The use of theoretical and empirical economic models is permitted, but papers are expected to be accessible to a general audience of judges, academic lawyers, and economists.
