Law and Capitalism: Introduction

Sources to support the Brooklyn Law School course: Law and Capitalism. Under development.

We Are Developing This Guide

Our librarians are developing this research guide and Brooklyn Law School Library's collection to support the spring 2024 BLS course: Law and Capitalism in U.S. History. When you access this guide in future, please reload this web page

Excerpt from Professor Sarah Winsberg's course syllabus:

Why and how have markets come to shape so much of American life? Legal history is a key tool in discovering and understanding the answers. Throughout U.S. history, law has been intertwined with capitalism, enabling, shaping, and enforcing its most important developments.
