Prof. Levmore to Speak on Regulating Internalities

Prof. Saul Levmore, William B. Graham Distinguished Service Professor of Law, University of Chicago Law School, will give a presentation entitled “Regulating Internalities” as part of our QuantLaw Program on Monday, March 10, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m., in Room 168. The presentation will focus on health and safety regulations and how they can be understood as the product of political coalitions between two groups. Prof. Levmore will consider smoking regulation and other health and safety regulation, and then contrasts these with anti-obesity efforts where private contracting is a more feasible means of controlling internalities, and where political coalitions are less likely. The presentation is open to students and members of the public.
