Law and Economics, Judicial Pragmatism and Their Limits on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Review of Central and East European Law. 2017. Vol. 42. P. 73-94.
Antonov M., Posner R., Gadzhiev G.

The paper analyzes the key ideas of Justice Gadzhiev and Judge Posner on legal methodology and tasks in legal education. These ideas are considered in the context of two recent books by these authors. Both books appeared in 2016 and both question certain principal dimensions of pragmatism in the law, to which both Gadzhiev and Posner are subscribed. This review essay examines the links between the respective ideas of these two authors on methods of legal research, on judicial process and on teaching law, in addition to providing an overview of the intellectual culture of the us and Russian legal orders.
