    Topics in Behavioral Law and Economics (20649). 2 units. This course will explore a range of issues at the intersection of law and human behavior, including people's conduct under risk and uncertainty; the commitment to fairness; social influences; adaptation; subjective well-being; and implicit bias. Some discussion will be devoted to the uses and limits of paternalism and to the ability of the legal system to accommodate and respond to what we know about human behavior. The course materials will consist of articles from the social science and legal literatures. Paper required. Students wishing to engage in more sustained writing may complete either their Supervised Analytic Writing requirement (in which case the course should be taken for 4 rather than 2 units) or the Substantial Paper requirement (in which case the course should be taken for 3 rather than 2 units). Enrollment limited. C. Jolls.
