The Encyclopedia of Law and Economics is a monumental reference work that surveys the entire literature on law and economics in over 3,000 pages. The entries consist of two elements: a review of the literature written by an authority in the field and a bibliography which covers most of the published material in the particular area. The reviews are written in an accessible style which will be suitable for non-specialists, such as lawyers, judges, politicians and students as well as scholars of law and economics. This authoritative Encyclopedia will rapidly become established as a leading bibliographic and reference source in law and economics.

The Encyclopedia has been divided into five volumes, each of which can be purchased separately or as a complete set.

Volume I: The History and Methodology of Law and Economics includes entries on general works, the history of law and economics around the world, schools and approaches, and the general structure of the law.

Volume II: Civil Law and Economics addresses private property, intellectual property, common property, environmental regulation and tort law.

Volume III: The Regulation of Contracts examines general contract law, the regulation of contracts, antitrust law and competition law, employment law, corporate law, the theory of the firm and industry sector regulation.

Volume IV: The Economics of Public and Tax Law includes entries on tax law including property taxes, personal income taxation and international taxation, social security including health insurance, unemployment insurance and pensions and administrative law, including public organisations and administrative procedure.

Volume V: The Economics of Crime and Litigation considers judicial organisation, appeal and supreme courts, settlement and arbitration, the economics of criminal behaviour, organised crime and corruption, corporate criminal liability and war law, as well as the production of legal rules.
