Vanderbilt Appoints Law & Economics Scholars Viscusi & Hersch

W. Kip Viscusi (law and economics, torts, products liability), who Directs the Empirical Legal Studies Program at Harvard Law School and may be best-known outside the academy for his work on behalf of the tobacco companies in the smoking litigation, and his wife Joni Hersch, who is currently an adjunct professor at Harvard (and was previously a professor of economics at the University of Wyoming), have both accepted tenured appointments in the law school at Vanderbilt University.
