Law Institute for Economics Professors

Event Date: Sunday, July 15 to Friday, July 27, 2012

Location: The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, CO

Program Description: The Law Institute for Economics Professors provides professors with an introduction to basic legal research methods, legal procedures and substantive areas of the law. The objective of the Institute is to help economists bring greater policy relevance to their teaching and scholarship.

The Institute is primarily a course about law, not “Law & Economics”. It is carefully designed to provide academic economists with an overview of the American legal system. The course is directed to scholars with little or no previous legal education; emphasis is placed on those legal issues that are most appropriate for economic analysis.

More than 370 economics and business professors worldwide have attended the Law Institute. Alumni credit the Institute with providing them with insights leading to new research, new courses and new alliances with law and other professors.

The Sixteenth Law Institute will accommodate up to 30 economics professors. All professors must attend group meals and social events together. Classes meet for two weeks, with morning sessions daily and afternoon sessions scheduled on several days. There is no class on Sunday, July 22.

The Law Institute for Economics Professors will run concurrently with the Economics Institute for Law Professors.
