Maharashtra National Law University, Aurangabad is going to organise a webinar on “Economic Analysis and the Premises of Contract and Tort Doctrine”
About the Speaker
Professor Stearns, Venable, Baetjer & Howard Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, is an interdisciplinary scholar. He applies the methodologies of economics, broadly defined, to study private and public law, along with institutional decision-making processes.
His work combines such tools as neoclassical economics, interest group theory, social choice, and game theory, among others, to study legal doctrines and lawmaking systems. Much of his work centers on structural aspects of constitutional decision making in the Supreme Court, along with such specific doctrines as standing, the commerce clause, and equal protection.
His most recent book, Law and Economics: Private and Public (West Academic 2018) (with Todd Zywicki and Tom Miceli), comprehensively applies a broad range of economic methodologies to subject matters across the law school curriculum.
