This synopsis is to our article Varieties of New Legal Realism: Can a New World Order Prompt a New Legal Theory? The synopsis and article map and analyze three varieties of a new legal realism. We contend that these varieties of new legal realism provide responses to a “new formalism,” that of neoclassical law and economics. We conclude by outlining a “dynamic new realism” which builds from what we consider to be the best of the new legal realism.
