Details:

In this workshop, we will be exploring some express critiques of law and economics, by leading scholars who would describe themselves as doing Behavioral Law and Economics; we will also look at some implicit critiques, by scholars whose methodology presents a challenge to Behavioral Law and Economics as well as Law and Economics itself.
