Bonjour à toutes et à tous, Ejan MacKaay me transmet cette information que je glisse dans le blogue. "Je me permets d'attirer votre attention sur un point qui est évident pour certains, mais non pour d'autres au sein des facultés de droit. L'étude est américaine, bien entendu, mais je crois qu'elle nous parle tout de même".

Abstract: This paper reports the distribution of doctoral degrees in economics and in other fields among faculty at the 26 highest ranked law schools. Almost one-third of professors at the top 13 law schools have a Ph.D. degree, with nine percent having a Ph.D. in economics. Law school rank is highly correlated with the share of faculty holding a Ph.D. in economics and is less correlated with the share of faculty withother doctoral degrees. Law and economics is a major area of legal scholarship based on citations in the law literature and other impact rankings. In recognition of the increased importance of law and economics in legal education, in 2006 Vanderbilt University established a joint J.D./Ph.D. program in law and economics. We provide information on the genesis and operation of the program.
