  • Description

    Principles of Law and Economics is an undergraduate coursebook designed specifically for students with little or no background in economics. Written in a clear, jargon-free style, it provides an overview of the relationship between law and economics, including leading-edge topics such as environmental law, intellectual property law and game theory. Each chapter poses questions and problems to challenge and engage students. Thomas C. Schelling, the 2005 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, endorses this text.
