About the Authors
  • Economic Principles of Law, first published in 2007, applies economics to the doctrines, rules and remedies of the common law. In plain English and using non-technical analysis, it offers an introduction and exposition of the 'economic approach' to law - one of the most exciting and vibrant fields of legal scholarship and applied economics. Beginning with a brief history of the field, it sets out the basic economic concepts useful to lawyers, and applies these to assess the core areas of the common law - property, contract, tort and crime - with particular emphasis on their doctrinal structure and remedies. This is done using leading cases drawn from the birthplace of the common law (England & Wales) and other common law jurisdictions. The book serves as a primer to the wider use of economics which has become increasingly important for law students, lawyers, legislators, regulators and those concerned with our legal system generally.

    • Written in plain English using non-technical analysis
    • Easy for law students and non-economists to understand
    • First book of its kind to focus on non-US law

    'Particular reference is paid to leading English cases, which serves to distinguish the book from many others in the field, which is dominated by economic analysis of American Laws.' Modern Law Review
