Overview

With a generous gift from the John M. Olin Foundation, Stanford Law School initiated the John M. Olin Program in Law and Economics in 1987. The program supports faculty and student research, issues working papers, holds seminars and lunch discussions, and awards student fellowships in law and economics to matriculating Stanford students at the law school or in graduate programs at Stanford University.

The John M. Olin Program plays a very active role in the Law School—and more generally in the university—in promoting interest in the law and economics movement. Since the beginning of the Olin Program, 75 distinguished scholars from throughout the United States have come to Stanford to give presentations to the Law and Economics Seminar, 257 working papers have been distributed through the Olin Program Working paper series.
