Professors Jennifer Arlen '86 and Emiliano Catan LLM '10
Tuesday, 4:00-5:50 p.m.
Vanderbilt Hall, Room 202
Faculty from NYU and other institutions will present current research in law and economics. Students in the colloquium will evaluate and critique this research as guided by the professors in the course. Students do not need a background in economics but it is helpful. Students will not need to perform mathematical calculations, but will need to be comfortable with basic arithmetic and rudimentary calculus (taking a first derivative) in order to follow class presentations.
