Empirical understanding of law department operations. What understanding we think we have of law department management floats gossamer lightly.

Game theory and lawyers. To my posts of August 14, 2005 and February 8, 2006 I add that there is a book, published in 1994, entitled Game Theory And The Law. Written by three professors at the University of Chicago, the 344-page book looks quite comprehensive.
