The Method of Law and Economics: Lectures on the George Mason School: Lecture 1 - What Matters?
Jeffrey S. Parker
George Mason University School of Law
George Mason Law & Economics Research Paper No. 14-26
My objective in this course is to provide a general introduction to the method and content of the economic analysis of law, as it has been developed in the English-language literature, with emphasis on the contributions of those who are associated with what I believe will be known to history as the George Mason school of thought. Secondarily, I would like to use the course to convey some idea of the nature of instruction in American law schools.
