Course Descriptions

Economics Institutes for Judges

The Economics Institutes for Judges–the JEP's flagship program– focused on fundamental issues that often are at the heart of legal disputes. Over two weeks of intensive classroom lectures and discussion, judges are given a solid grounding in economics, finance, and scientific method.  The practical relevance of these disciplines is then examined by analyzing numerous cases. 

Judicial Symposia

Judicial Symposia are offered to alert judges to emerging challenges in substantive legal matters. Analysis of current legal and public policy issues are presented in lectures and balanced debates over two days.
