In this book Steven Shavell provides an in-depth analysis and synthesis of the econoic approach to the building blocks of our legal system, namely, property law, tort law, contract law and criminal law. He also examines the litigation process as well as welfare economics and morality.

Economic Analysis of Accident Law by Steven Shavell Economic Analysis of Accident Law, Paperback (March 2007)

Accident law, if properly designed, is capable of reducing the incidence of mishaps by making people act more cautiously. Since the 1960s, a group of legal scholars and economists have focused on identifying the effects of accident law on people's behaviour. This book aims to serve as a synthesis of research in this field.

Fairness Versus Welfare by Steven Shavell Fairness Versus Welfare, Paperback (September 2006)

Poses a challenge to contemporary moral philosophy by showing that most moral principles conflict more sharply with welfare than is generally recognized. This work demonstrates that all principles that are not based exclusively on welfare will sometimes favour policies under which literally everyone would be worse off.
