Critical legal studies (whose students are affectionately dubbed “Crits”) is a somewhat controversial academic movement that questions the normative value of law. This article suggests that the Crits, though controversial, should be praised for their criticism of law because such criticism leads to progress and advancement of the law. Further, the Crits will eventually be driven toward analysis of the confluence of law and religion in their search for the nature of the ultimate reality.
