Law-and-economics and legal formalism: never the twain shall meet?
ITAM-ILACDE Working Papers (2006)
  • Juan Javier del Granado
Law and economics adherents claim to be the natural heirs of legal realism. However, law and economics can also be seen as a valuable perspective because rather than part with private legal doctrine, cast in the formalist mold, this school of thought has come to revalue private legal doctrine and common-law/Roman law modes of legal reasoning.
