This seminar will focus on recent scholarship at the intersection of law and political economy. It will begin with several sessions introducing the history and theory of mainstream law and economics. It will then broaden out to consider several current law and political economy topics, including antitrust law and policy in the era of tech platforms; law and money; neoliberalism and constitutionalism; and the law and political economy of complex or intersectional inequality (i.e., class, race, gender). This is a rigorous seminar that will engage seriously with both mainstream law and economics and new and critical approaches. Evaluation will be based on student participation, including substantial reading and class discussion, and a final paper.


Real-time attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped.
