Course Description

The past decades have brought certain corporate transactions and arrangements to the forefront of public attention and public debate. At the same time, a new mode of corporate law analysis has been developed, more particularly in the United States. It is a mode of analysis that uses the tools of economics to identify the consequences and desirable features of corporate law rules. This course aims then, through carefully chosen topics, such as the elaboration of corporate law, tender offers or insider dealing, at providing the necessary background to understand the mechanics of the economic analysis of law as applied to modern corporate law, at understanding how it has or might affect the rules applicable in those areas and help determine whether it is, or not, a desirable approach to law.
