More Information
With contributions from some of the leading scholars in law and economics, this comprehensive book summarizes the state of economic research on litigation, procedure and evidence.

Among the topics covered are the settlement negotiations; discovery; the incentive to sue; theories of legal evidence; evidentiary misconduct; and the privilege against self-incrimination.

Critical Acclaim
‘The book is quite rightly referred to as essential reading for economists, graduate students in economics (of course), as well as those in law and business. . . the book is useful as a research tool, with any number of footnotes and bibliographies.’
– Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine

‘The second edition of Procedural Law and Economics is an expanded and updated collection that highlights new developments and reiterates older themes. The volume will be essential reading both for economists who want an introduction to a core legal subject, and for legal scholars seeking new insights into the such topics as settlement, fee shifting, and class actions.’
– Susan Rose-Ackerman, Yale University, US
