LAW 648A/B - Law and Economics Workshop

The UCLA Law and Economics Workshop is an interdisciplinary workshop attended by students and faculty members. Speakers from other universities will be invited to present working papers on law and economics topics including those involving contract, tort, intellectual property, and business law. Students will write graded reaction papers that will given to the speakers. This seminar is particularly well suited for students who wish to learn more about law and economics and to see the scholarly process in action.  Many of the papers will be technical so students should have some knowledge of empirical methods and ideally a basic understanding of calculus.
