Building Exchange Systems for Law (Law 456)

Course Description:
This course shows how experimental economics can be used to design, build, and test institutions for exchange. Participants will receive hands on experience with different institutions in our experimental laboratory. The classroom experiments involve making decisions as buyers and/or sellers who are motivated to find optimal allocations specific to their unique situations. By building on this experience we will then explore a number of different public and private applications to law. Some applications demonstrate how experimental economics can be used to influence court decisions while other applications show how to improve the practice of law. Student evaluations will depend on their performance in the classroom experiments, and on a final team project developing ideas for their own mechanism to be presented at the end of the semester.
