This is a collection of thirteen essays on the economics of law, intended as an introductory reader on the subject for British undergraduate and (post)graduate students studying either law or economics. The essays are grouped under four topics: contract; tort; the judicial process; and public law. Most of the contributors to the volume, like the editors, are British, although several American and Canadian authors are included as well. All of the essays appear to have been written particularly for this collection, although many are clearly derivative of the authors’ earlier writings.
