Recent empirical work on labor markets reveals that they are beset by frictions, including high levels of concentration and frequent collusion, contrary to the traditional view of labor markets as being perfectly competitive. The implications of this work for law and policy have only begun to be explored. The University of Chicago Law Review convened a symposium to bring together scholars from various disciplines and with different subject matter expertise but with a common interest in understanding the regulation of labor markets in light of new empirical results. The papers delivered at the symposium have been published in this symposium issue.
