LEC Economics Institute for Law Professors

Event Date: Sunday, June 15 to Friday, June 27, 2014

Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort 2200 Village Inn Court, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477

Prerequisite:  The Economics Institute is carefully designed for those who possess little or no previous formal economics education. It covers basic price theory, with emphasis on the allocative effects of alternative property rights regimes, transaction cost economics, and the application of basic economic theory to a variety of legal issues.  As such, there is no prerequisite for this Institute. 

Program Description:  The goal of the Economics Institute for Law Professors is to help participants enhance their understanding of economics and broaden their analytical tools in order to introduce greater economic sophistication and policy relevance to their professional work. More than 640 law professors worldwide have attended the LEC’s Economics Institutes. Alumni routinely credit the Institute with providing creative insights into research and teaching, and with facilitating collegial associations. Enrollment is limited to 30 professors.
