Can you help me understand this Economics question?
The essence of this project is to choose a legal topic that is of interest to you and demonstrate that you can apply economic analysis to the legal issues raised by the topic.
One approach to identifying a topic is to skim the National Law Journal or legal sections of the Economist, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, or similar source for actual cases or other legal disputes that are in the news. Another approach is to think of an application of a mechanism that studied in this course. It is best if limit topic to the areas of property, contracts, torts, crime or concepts of justice. You may not do project on antitrust law and economics.
