Fall 2008 Symposium

Emerging Paradigms of Rationality:
Theory and Applications

Friday, October 31st & Saturday, November 1st
University of Minnesota Law School
Courtroom 170

Organizers: Prof. Claire Hill, University of Minnesota Law School; and Prof. Tom Ulen, University of Illinois College of Law, Champaign-Urbana.


There has been considerable scholarship critiquing and refining the traditional law and economics model of rationality into something more realistic and useful for policymakers. This symposium brings together leading scholars in law, economics, psychology, and other fields to explore the emerging paradigms—those that go beyond not only the traditional law and economics model but also the first-generation behavioral law and economics models. Papers will be published in a symposium issue of the Queen's Law Journal.
