The second, expanded edition of the acclaimed Encyclopedia represents a major
update of the most authoritative reference work in the field of law and economics and the nine print
volumes are now released online as a single integrated product.
The Encyclopedia provides balanced and comprehensive coverage of the major
domain in law and economics, including: criminal law, regulation, property law, contract law, tort
law, labor and employment law, antitrust law, procedural law, and the production of legal rules.
Each theme or volume is overseen by a leading scholar and each of the 166 entries is prepared by an
expert in the field, providing an in-depth and authoritative overview of the individual topic,
combined with an exhaustive bibliography, allowing users to access and filter the entire corpus of
literature in law and economics.
As with the print edition, the Encyclopedia is unique in serving both as an
entry point and a platform for advanced research. The online edition is enhanced with Elgaronline’s
powerful search tools, facilitating the search for key terms across the entire
Encyclopedia, whilst the browse function allows users to move seamlessly between
the volumes. These elements combine to create a powerful research tool for any researcher or scholar
in the field of law and economics.
