Overview

Dnes' Economics of Law is a straightforward, up-to-date introduction to economics of law, with economic analysis and legal principles treated in a self-contained manner as the book progresses.

The book is based on a British version, but is explicitly US in focus and is up to date on US case law and Restatements. This book includes timely coverage of the economic analysis of property, contract, criminal, tort, and procedural law with the emphasis placed on economics rather than on legal issues.
