Program Description: The Law & Economics Center at George Mason University School of Law is pleased to announce a Workshop for Law Professors on the Economics of Litigation and Civil Procedure, to be held from Thursday, January 29 to Sunday, February 1, 2015 at Hawks Cay Resort in Duck Key, Florida. The goal of the Workshop for Law Professors on the Economics of Litigation and Civil Procedure is to help participants enhance their understanding of economics, broaden their analytical tools, and allow them to introduce greater economic sophistication and policy relevance to their academic work.

This workshop is aimed at law professors interested in teaching and conducting research related to civil procedure and litigation, and is carefully designed for those who possess little or no previous formal economics education. The workshop will focus on how economic analysis is used to examine the rules of civil procedure and their effect on litigants’ incentives and litigation outcomes. The workshop will also examine recent scholarship on the economics of procedural reform as well as research strategies and data sources used to empirically measure the effect of such rules changes.
