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.

History of Law & Economics at Yale Law School

Today is a wonderful time to be blessed with legal training and to be able to go out and take on the enormous challenges of a difficult world — with an aspiration to lead tempered by humility at the complexity, difficulty, discipline, and self-sacrifice inherent in the task.”
