1. On a practical level, what does the focus on law & econ really mean for most students? Are the classes somehow different? Is the selection of classes offered different than it otherwise might be? Does law & econ have a more corporate feel, or a more academic one?
Definitely academic. Some of the most gung-ho law and econ profs are also some of the least concerned with the practical details of day to day life. Overall, the focus on law & econ just means you spend less time with black letter law.
