My colleage Francesco Parisi has chimed in on Vandy’s new law and economics program in the Chronicle of Higher Education. Though I cannot click through to the actual article in the Chronicle, Francesco notes that GMU has long had a “Law and Economics” Ph.D. program, offering six different degrees in law and economics (as opposed to separate programs). I suppose the distinguishing fact is that the Vandy program would be housed in the law school and not the economic department — but as discussed in the comments to the earlier post here at TOTM, it is unclear whether that feature provides any additional benefits. In any event, I am happy to see more of these programs.
