Economics for Lawyers

Economics for Lawyers (formerly Economic Foundations of Legal Studies) exposes students to a broad survey of economic, statistical, finance and accounting concepts in which those concepts play a crucial role in determining the outcome of legal disputes. Students will not become expert in these technical areas but will be exposed to both the mechanics and subtleties of these tools. The goal is to educate and train students so that they will be better prepared to understand a dispute, craft an argument, or prepare a witness.

NOTE: This is a distance learning course offered through iLaw. It will be taught by Professor Henry Butler of George Mason University. Students may register directly through WebAdvisor and the regular add/drop dates and policies apply to this class.
