Legal obligations are not always fulfilled. This is when the obligation matters in court. Which remedy should courts grant? In economic perspective, the prospect of the remedy constitutes a game. By specifying the remedy, the legal order gives the parties incentives for action and investment choices. This also holds for potential tortfeasors, and even for government deciding to take a citizen’s property. The papers contributed to the symposium address these issues both theoretically and empirically.
