Cíle předmětu
Economic Analysis of Law (also known as Law and Economics) is microeconomics applied to legal phenomena, i.e., analysis of incentives and behavior under alternative legal rules. Put more broadly, it is a study of rules and institutions from the efficiency and social welfare point of view. Law and Economics is a dominating theory of law, at least in the US. The course will cover basic concepts and models of the economic analysis of law with main focus on several core areas: institutions and the long-run growth, property, contract, accidents, and crime.

Students will obtain a general overview of the field of Law and Economics. They will learn basic concepts and theories, read seminal papers, learn about influential authors, and receive a sample of more recent research papers in the field. Apart from textbook material, we will discuss classic papers as well as more recent (mostly empirical) ones.
