Michael Trebilcock is passionately committed to improving the lives of the poor. As part of this project, he has written extensively on the effort to bolster the rule of law in developing countries and to improve the legal institutions found in these countries. Through an analysis of his recent book on this subject, Rule of Law Reform and Development (written with Ron Daniels), this essay examines Trebilcock’s method and philosophic orientation and shows how his moral sensibilities have led him to depart from the classic tenets of law and economics and to open new vistas for this branch of legal analysis.
