What people are saying

law and economics

Nice Great introduction to Law and Economics.

It is a actually a very good introduction to Law and Economics.

This course has many useful insights for anyone who is inclined to learn and appreciate the link between the law and economics.

The Course is well planned and intended to give clarity with regard to the basics of interplay between law and economics.

The class lays down the foundation to our understanding of law and economics.

Excellent overall course: Begins with philosophy of property, moves into property law and economics, then ties back into the original theory.

very interesting

Very interesting topic about Law and an economic aspect of Law and its application An absolutely informative and thoughtfully developed course that is easily understandable by persons with little or no legal training.

The course was very interesting, our prof was inspiring.

Okay, after the first couple of weeks the material became very interesting, esp.

It was very interesting to see how economic forces influence the way we write and interpret our law.

The course was very interesting.

Professor Richard Adelstein's lectures are simply amazing.

Prof Richard Adelstein has a delivery style which is simple that it seems like he is making a 8 year old understand it.

I found Richard Adelstein a very engaging professor.

excellent course

Excellent course, full of fascinating cases and concepts, and brought to life by the thoroughly entertaining Prof. Adelstein.

This is an excellent course however I wish the answer sheets of the quiz be shared once the deadline has passed.

But if you can get accustomed to these, then it's an excellent course.

This feature will be helpful in absence of the discussion forum.

The discussion forums have some helpful posts and a few flames.

thinking about

This is a great course to get introduced to thinking about legal problems using economic priniciples.

My biggest takeaway from this course is a different way of thinking about property.

Right now, after I completed all the work and went over the passing threshold, I feel like I learnt a few notions, but I have no idea how they do tie in with the US law and American thinking about property.
