Posted by D. Daniel Sokol
I have written a short piece for an online symposium on Law and Development in the Northwestern Law Review Colloquy that involved a number of other scholars. The group included: Tom Ginsburg (U. Chicago Law), Salil Mehra (Temple Law), Katharina Pistor (Columbia Law), Anna Gelpern (American U. Law), Mariana Prado (U. Toronto Law), Susan D. Franck (Washington & Lee Law), John Cioffi (UC Riverside Political Science), Kevin Davis (NYU Law), Adam Feibelman (Carolina Law), Brian Z. Tamanaha (Wash U Law), Yuka Kaneko (Kobe Law), D. Daniel Sokol (U. Florida Law), Daniel Kaufmann (Brookings), Veronica Taylor (U. Washington Law) and John Ohnesorge (U. Wisconsin Law)
My contribution in the give and take is titled Law and Development: The Way Forward or Just Stuck in the Same Place?
ABSTRACT: This Essay does three things. First, it provides an overview of Law and Development issues. Second, it responds to other pieces in the symposium "The Future of Law and Development". Third, it suggests that to measure success, Law and Development needs clearer goals.
