Contract Theory and Economics of Contract Law
The book “Economic Methods for Lawyers” (Edward Elgar Publishing Limited) has been published in November 2015. In this book, which was edited by Emanuel V. Towfigh and Niels Petersen, I composed the chapter about „Contract Theory and Economics of Contract Law“.
As to the purpose and aim concept of the book I content myself with referring to the publishers blurb:
“Responding to the growing importance of economic reasoning in legal scholarship, this innovative work provides an essential introduction to the economic tools, which can usefully be employed in legal reasoning. It is geared specifically towards those without a great deal of exposure to economic thinking and provides law students, legal scholars and practitioners with a practical toolbox to shape their writing, understanding and case preparation. “ – Edward Elgar Publishing
