About this product
- DescriptionResponding to the growing importance of ecomic reasoning in legal scholarship, this invative work provides an essential introduction to the ecomic tools which can usefully be employed in legal reasoning. It is geared specifically towards those without a great deal of exposure to ecomic thinking and provides law students, legal scholars and practitioners with a practical toolbox to shape their writing, understanding and case preparation. The book's clear focus on ecomic methods poses a refreshing change to conventional textbooks in this area, which tend to focus on content-related theories. Recognising that it is often difficult to derive adequate conclusions for legal arguments without first understanding the methodological limitations of ecomic studies, this book provides a comprehensive coverage of the most important ecomic concepts in order to bridge this gap. These include: * game theory * public choice and social choice theory * behavioural ecomics * empirical research design * basic statistics. Owing to its concise and accessible style, Ecomic Methods for Lawyers will provide an invaluable companion for legal scholars or practitioners who wish to utilise ecomic methods for developing legal argument.
