On November 7, 2008, the Erasmus University Rotterdam conferred the title of Doctor honoris causa upon Guido Calabresi, Judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Sterling Professor Emeritus, and former Dean of Yale Law School. With the awarding of this doctorate, the Erasmus School of Law wanted to honour Guido Calabresi for his extraordinary intellectual achievements in the field of Law and Economics. This special issue of the Erasmus Law Review is published on the occasion of the award of the honorary doctorate to Guido Calabresi. The issue contains four contributions, all written by European authors, which show how Calabresi’s writings have had a profound impact on legal scholarship and judicial decision-making not only in the US but also in Europe.
