This essay addresses questions of truth and beauty, of poetry and fidelity, as applied to legal education and ultimately to law. After discussing how law schools can most faithfully translate their teachings to lawyers' real concerns, I shall ponder how the law itself reconciles its duty to truth with its practitioners' longing for beauty.
