Pop Law

I blogged about my latest legal-philosophical foray into popular culture (the wedding scene in the original Godfather movie) in my previous post. That Godfather post then got me to thinking about my previous “pop culture” papers. In all, ten of my scholarly works have been inspired by popular culture and other forms of mass-market entertainment, including sci-fi, vampire lit, and literary fan art, just to name a few. For your reference, below is a complete listing, in chronological order, of my “pop law” papers:

  1. Time scarcity in Blade Runner: Clones and the Coase Theorem (2011) (with Orlando Martinez-Garcia)
  2. Violence in the vampire lit genre: Buy or Bite? (2013)
  3. The law and economics of two versions of the trolley problem: Trolley Problems (2014)
  4. The law and ethics of the “facemash incident” (The Social Network): Hacking Harvard (2016)
  5. Bargaining and betrayal in Breaking Bad: So Long Suckers (2018)
  6. The law and economics of literary fan art (with examples from The Old Man and the Sea): Of Coase and Copyrights (2019)
  7. “The Little Rock Nine”: Domestic Constitutional Violence (2019)
  8. Animals and online ed: Teaching Tiger King (2021)
  9. Illegal agreements in Better Call Saul: Breaking Bad Promises (2022)
  10. The wedding scene in The Godfather: Coase and the Corleones (2023)
