Florida State / College of Law / Law, Business and Economics / Murat C. Mungan

Murat C. Mungan, an assistant professor, holds a Ph.D. in economics from Boston College and a J.D. from George Mason University. He teaches students basic accounting, finance theory, and economic analysis.


“I use modern economics to shed light on the incentive, behavioral, and welfare aspects of legal rules. My work generally applies microeconomic theory, including game theory, to study optimal law enforcement strategies, antitrust, innovation and intellectual property, and criminal law and procedure. My latest work focuses on an issue in the intersection of antitrust and patent laws, namely the dynamic and static effects of illegalizing reverse payment settlements.”
