HARVARD LEGAL THEORY FORUM

Legal Theory Reading Group, November 2, 7:00 PM, Pound 418

October 30th, 2010 · No Comments

Hi everyone,

The next Legal Theory Forum meeting will be this coming Tuesday (Nov 02) at 7pm in Pound 418. Once again, we’re planning on serving dinner. This week we’ll be reading a CLS critique of law & economics. The text is an excerpt from Duncan Kennedy, Cost-Benefit Analysis of Entitlement Problems: A Critique, 33 Stanford Law Review 387 (1981). The article is rather long, so feel free to focus on pages 1-14 and 36-59 (that is: skip part III “The Offer-Asking Probllem”). The file is available here.

And for anyone who is interested on extra work, we recommend Duncan Kennedy’s entry in The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law on “law-and-economics from the perspective of critical legal studies.” Available here.

Best,
Anthony & Gustavo
