One of the great successes of the law and economics movement has been the use of economic models to explain the structure and function of broad areas of law. The original contributions to this volume epitomize that tradition, offering state-of-the-art research on the many facets of economic modeling in law.
Thomas J. Miceli and Matthew J. Baker
The economic approach to law relies on the use of economic models, mostly mathematical, for understanding the nature and function of law. This research review spans the many sub-areas of law and economics (with papers in torts, contracts, property, crime, and legal procedure) and includes a wide range of papers, incorporating classics and some less well-known papers. Economic Models of Law will be an invaluable resource for active scholars as well as an inspiration for the next generation of modelers.
