Economics for Lawyers Online Course Now Available for Fastcase Subscribers

All Fastcase Subscribers will now have access to a new online course, Economics for Lawyers, free of charge. In a self-paced, non-pressured online setting, the course exposes you to economics, statistics, financial and accounting concepts, all of which play a crucial role in both transactional law and in determining the outcome of legal disputes.


A wonderful resource for all lawyers, whether they are new or experienced, you’ll add to your understanding of the economics behind most transactions and you’ll better understand disputes, whether in litigation or arbitration, allowing you to craft legal arguments and even to prepare and question witnesses in depositions and litigation.


The innovative online lectures, led by experts at George Mason Law School, including Law School Dean Henry Butler and former FTC member Joshua Wright, are designed entirely self-paced, so that you can access the course content at whatever time you want, and go through it as quickly or as slowly as you need. 24/7 technical support is available – though all you need is a computer (or tablet, or mobile device) and internet access – in order to be successful.


Course content includes:

  • The Economic Perspective
  • Demand, Supply, and Markets
  • Probability and Statistics
  • Game Theory
  • Risk
  • Market Structure and Antitrust
  • Property Rights and Externalities
  • Information and Transaction Costs
