Law and Economics: A Guided Tour

The University of Chicago has been at the forefront of the law and economics movement since its modern conception. But what exactly is law and economics all about? Jim Leitzel, who has taught law and economics in the College for nearly a decade, offers a guided tour through some of the highlights. Fellow travelers will visit the British Museum and a deserted isle, mingle with Vladimir Nabokov and Jeremy Bentham, and purchase heroin and human kidneys. No visas and no immunizations are necessary, but a sense of adventure and discovery will help open up the unexpected vistas of law and economics.
