Editorial Reviews

Review

Statutory Default Rules is an important contribution to the debate over legal interpretation. It rehabilitates the imaginative-reconstruction approach of Learned Hand and gives it new intellectual foundations, including a sophisticated appreciation of relevant social science. (Adrian Vermeule, Harvard Law School)

An important contribution to the field, cogently written and well-organized, it will spark lively discussion in a domain of legal scholarship that could certainly use it. (Mariano-Florentino Cuellar, Stanford Law School)

The book is a masterpiece which I will be using in my own work (hopefully) for decades to come! (Jonathan Macey, Yale Law School)

More About the Author

Einer Elhauge is the Petrie Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and founding director of the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics. He served as Chairman of the Antitrust Advisory Committee to the Obama Campaign. He teaches a gamut of courses ranging from Antitrust, Contracts, Corporations, Legislation, and Health Care Law. Before coming to Harvard, he was a Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley, and clerked for Judge Norris on the 9th Circuit and Justice Brennan on the Supreme Court. He received both his A.B. and his J.D. from Harvard, graduating first in his law school class.

He is an author of numerous pieces on range of topics even broader than he teaches, including antitrust (monopolization, predatory pricing, tying, bundled discounts, loyalty discounts, disgorgement, petitioning and state action immunity, the Google Books Settlement, and the Harvard v. Chicago schools of antitrust), public law (statutory interpretation, legislative term limits, the 2000 Presidential election, the ObamaCare mandate, and the implications of interest group theory for judicial review), corporate law (social responsibility and sale of control doctrine), patent law (patent holdup and royalty stacking), the legal profession (the value of litigation and counseling advice), and health law policy (healthcare fragmentation, medical technology assessment, how to make health law a coherent legal field, and how to devise a morally just and cost effective medical system). His most recent books include: "Research Handbook on the Economics of Antitrust Law (Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd. 2012)"; "The Fragmentation of U.S. Health Care: Causes and Solutions" (Oxford University Press 2010); "Statutory Default Rules" (Harvard University Press 2008); "U.S. Antitrust Law and Economics (Foundation Press 2011)"; and "Global Competition Law and Economics" (Hart Publishing 2011). Currently he is writing books about Contract Theory, Health Law Policy, and Re-engineering Human Biology, as well as working on articles on sundry other topics.
