These lectures will mostly interest the law student & lawyer crowds but for this audience they are great. The content of each lecture I have listened to is substantively deep and intellectually engaging. It is nice to listen to people whose work I have read or name I have heard of but haven't been able to hear from directly. My only problem is that the audio quality. There is a fair amount of background noise, but not to the extent that makes listening annoying. It just sounds like someone is sitting in the middle of the room with a recorder. So you hear table bumps, pop cans opening, coughs, doors, etc. However, I can hear 99% of the words so very little content is lost. I'm glad Chicago decided to make these lectures available via podcast. Thanks for sharing the knowledge. I think it is good way to promote the law school as well.
Thanks again Chicago
I am teaching a law and economics oriented contracts class to lawyers, judges and prosecutors in an LLM program in Manila. I am using these lectures to supplement the course and for make up assignments. This is a great resource.
