Frank Fagan, Ph.D, is Associate Professor of Law and a member of the LegalEDHEC research center. He specializes in law and economics. His writing spans the laws of contracts, corporations, torts, crimes, and taxation, and uses standard economic theory, econometrics, and big data prediction techniques.  He has written extensively on the timing of lawmaking.  His book, Law and the Limits of Government, is viewed as a leading treatment of the subject. His work in progress is varied, and considers regulatory approaches to contracts, the corporate law doctrine of good faith, the systemic regulation of social media, law’s treatment of artificial intelligence, and the role of secrecy in precautionary behavior.
