Overview
Legal scholarship and practice have been central to neoliberalism’s success as both a conceptual paradigm and a political and economic practice. While neoliberalism is most commonly associated with economics and the social sciences — particularly among thinkers such as Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman — it is through the co-option of legal scholarship, doctrine, and practice that neoliberal concepts have had their most far-reaching effects. Law and Political Economy (LPE), an emerging approach in legal scholarship and pedagogy, is the defining response to neoliberalism in the current legal academy. The scholars funded through this grant have been focused on advancing this approach. Their ambition is to develop LPE into a far-reaching shift that will change the way law is studied and taught, the public discussion of legal and political institutions and power, and law’s role in policymaking and political mobilization.
