Is there any way for law students to learn some real economics at the Law School without knowing calculus beforehand? I know you can take economics classes across the Midway, but I’m not sure if you can take the calculus that’s prereq to classes in the ECON dept. Maybe the economics sequence at Harris, which doesn’t have a MATH 15300 prereq?

Not sure I’d want to do this anyway because economics is hard and time-intensive, but I’m curious if it’s even possible.
this is not a real answer to what you're asking but I am pretty sure you can audit (unofficially) any class you want across the midway if the prof says ok. might be a lower pressure way for you to do this.

Antitrust (Picker) or Corp Tax (Weisbach) if goal is good grades for less work? Comfortable w/ both tax and Law/Econ...

Picker's antitrust class felt reasonably forgiving and fairly graded. I found Picker to be an entertaining lecturer though I know others felt differently. That said it's more of a 2L class so may not benefit as much from 3Ls 3LOLing. Hard to compare as I didn't take corp tax.

Definitely Antitrust. Picker is also really awesome.

I have some actually pretty serious reservations about Picker but can't say more on here. But PM me if you're considering asking him for a reference, using him for independent study/journal comment/etc. Doesn't diminish having enjoyed his class(es) quite a bit, especially his seminars.

One damn exam left here... I spent basically 1.67 years taking nothing but in-class 3 hour exams, and now for whatever reason my very last exam period is nothing but take-homes. Not my favorite way to spend my last finals season, but at least it's almost done.


@Beep + Skers: Advice on Picker Antitrust was spot-on. Enjoyable class, prepped well for final, did quite well.

Good luck to 1Ls who are maybe starting elective exams today!?
