ECO 246 - Forensic Economics

Three Credits
Not Offered 2016-2017

Forensic Economics is the study of the contributions made by economists in providing expert opinions related to the measurement of economic damages in a vast array of legal dilemmas and circumstances. Such circumstances include the wrongful death associated with medical malpractice, discrimination and wrongful termination, catastrophic personal injuries, and others. This course provides students with an opportunity to “do economics” by incorporating active learning techniques associated with the functions of the forensic economist.

Prerequisite(s): ECO 176  and ECO 178  (or their corresponding First-Year Seminar equivalents), and completion of any Statistical Reasoning course. Familiarity with spreadsheet software (such as Excel) is also strongly recommended.
