    Contract and Regulation

    Edited by Roger Brownsword, Rob A.J. van Gestel, Hans-W. Micklitz
    Contract and Regulation: A Handbook on New Methods of Law Making in Private Law sheds light on the darker side of contracts. It begins by exploring the ‘regulatory space’ in which projects are planned, deals are done, and goods and services are consumed, then shows how a ‘bottom-up’ approach can be adopted in order to view this transactional space through the eyes of contractors. The expert contributors explore modes of governance that do not fit nicely into traditional contract theory, paying special attention to three key examples: governance and codes of conduction, networks and relations, compliance and use.

  15. Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Methodologies of Law and Economics

    Edited by Thomas S. Ulen
    When law and economics first became an important part of the legal academy, it was a relatively straightforward application of microeconomic theory to legal issues. However, in the past 35 years the field has expanded its toolkit dramatically. This latest volume in the acclaimed Encyclopedia of Law and Economics maps the methodological territory in Law and Economics, with a series of entries by distinguished scholars that introduce and evaluate that expansive toolkit, including the roles of microeconomic theory, public and social choice, history, complexity theory, philosophy, comparative law studies, behavioral economics, and empirical techniques. Each piece introduces the technique, demonstrates its importance to the field of law and economics, and assists the reader in navigating the leading literature on that topic. Learn More

    Certification and Collective Marks

    Jeffrey Belson
    Certification and Collective Marks is a thoroughly updated and augmented edition of Certification Marks, first published in 2002.

In addition to the laws and policies impacting ownership and use of these marks, also addressed are their historical development, registration and protection, certifiers’ liability, legal and commercial significance, use in regulatory and technical standardization frameworks, and emergent sui generis forms of certification, namely ecolabels and electronic authentication marks in digital content. This publication is especially timely in light of the advent of the EU certification mark and the controversial EU proposals to extend the Geographical Indications system to include non-agri-food products.
