About Law & Economics
The Law School is at the heart of a movement to expand the once-narrow field of law and economics to embrace a broader intellectual enterprise that applies the methods of economic analysis to almost all areas of law. Much of the Law School's activity in this area is carried out by the John M. Olin Center for Law, Economics and Public Policy.
If I had to identify the two things which taken in combination make Yale Law School such a special place, it would have to be the school’s longstanding commitment to intellectualism, and its equally long-lived and deep-seated commitment to public service.”
Class of 1975, Sterling Professor of Law and Former Dean
