Symposium Article


In this Article, the author remarks on two developments in the teaching of law and economics in the North American legal academy. First, a paradoxical trend: as law and economics becomes more firmly accepted among legal scholars, the need for separate courses on law and economics may decline. Second, the legal academy is developing important independent literature in law and economics. Ulen argues that as law and economics has become more influential and pervasive, the popularity of separate courses has declined, and the difficulty of fitting more into the curriculum has increased.
