This course examines the connecting bridges between Legal and Economic Science: rational, purposive action, their common goal (the regulation of social relationships), their normative aspect, etc. It then analyzes: (a) the relationship between legal rules and policies aiming at economic efficiency, and (b) The connection of fundamental concepts of economics with legal and political rules, by means of case studies (e.g. regarding legislation and incentives, the dysfunctions arising from the action of organized pressure groups and the increasing bureaucracy, economic inequalities within the contemporary welfare state, social policies as a result of the trade-off between social equality and economic efficiency, and so on). In the last half of the course, economic analysis is applied to particular branches of Law: property law (with an emphasis on the Coase Theorem), contract law, torts, environmental law, criminal law (exami! ned primarily through the lens of Gary Becker’s theory of the rational criminal), and finally, family law. It should be noted that prior knowledge of economics is not required in order to attend this course.
