Law and Development
J.D. Course 292 (cross-listed) | 3 credit hours
This course will address the debates over the role of the legal order in economic development. It will survey economic theories of growth on the one hand and legal theories of the role of law in society on the other. A focus of the course will be the strategies pursued by third world nationalist regimes to pursue economic development whether through heavy regulation and planning or, more recently, through liberalizing their countries’ economies. The course will also discuss the role of the international trade regime in economic development.
Students may not receive credit for both this course and the J.D. courses, Law and Development Seminar; or Developing Countries in the International Economic System Seminar; or the graduate course by the same title, or the graduate course, Development Law.
