ABSTRACT
This paper challenges the traditionally normative perspective on the teaching of Law and Economics that focuses on evaluating the economic efficiency of specific laws. Widening the lens of analysis from normative to positive by accounting for the political process of law and policy design would help students of economics, public policy and law to reconcile the frequent divergence between normative recommendations and actual policy implementation. The case study of an undergraduate course on the Political Economy of Public Policy highlights the unique benefits of an interdisciplinary approach to curriculum design through enhancing student learning and the development of critical analytical skills.
