The relationship between law and economics is complex and wide-reaching. In this new textbook, Alan Devlin explains law-and-economics theory in an accessible and straightforward manner.
The book explores the relationship between law and economics and legal theory by contextualising it within legal issues relevant to both the UK and the US. Drawing on the neoclassical tradition of economic analysis of law as well as the behavioural movement founded in cognitive psychology, Principles of Law and Economics provides a comprehensive summary of the subject.
In addition to his own analysis of the topic, Devlin provides references at the end of every chapter to the most important books and articles in the field, in order to further individual study.
