Course Detail
Course Components:
In the first year of law school, students primarily take classes in property law, contracts, torts, and criminal law. This course covers each of these common law areas of law (as well as statutory intellectual property law: patents, trademarks, and copyrights) beginning with the black letter law and then turning to the economic analysis of these legal principles. Students will also read some of the classic cases in these areas and evaluate these opinions using economics. Graduate students should register for ECON 6380 and will be held to higher standards and/or additional work.
