|Economic Analysis of Law - JURD7335|
This course provides an introduction to economic analysis of law and policy. For instance, the law against insider trading prohibits trading based on material, non-public information. In this course we examine what exactly is meant by “materiality”; we examine methods to determine whether information is public and to what degree it is reflected in the financial markets; and we analyse how this affects the legal liability of a trader in possession of the information.
