That is why it is taught by an economist and a legal scholar, both specialised in intellectual property and used to inter-disciplinary dialogue between law and economics. The existence of this course and its content are justified by the conviction that the use of economic analysis is useful for the law student and the future lawyer because it enable him to understand the effect of intellectual property and the way economic actors use it. Economic analysis is equally useful the student-citizen as it helps him to develop a critical reflexion on intellectual property and the big debates it generates in society.
