This seminar provides students with an opportunity to discuss ongoing research in the economic analysis of law. At most sessions, an invited speaker (from Berkeley or elsewhere) will present work-in-progress and then take questions from students and faculty in the audience. Speakers include prominent scholars in the field of law and economics from around the nation and the world.
