Leo Katz is the Frank Carano Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He is the author of Bad Acts and Guilty Minds: Conundrums of the Criminal Law and Ill-Gotten Gains: Evasion, Blackmail, Fraud, and Kindred Puzzles of the Law, both published by the University of Chicago Press.
"Why the Law Is So Perverse is a terrific book. It is original in its general conception and creative in all the particularities of its execution. And in bringing the social choice argument to the law and legal problems, Katz has made an important and novel academic contribution." (Bruce Chapman, University of Toronto)"
