The Lawyer as Legal Scholar


Michael J. Madison


University of Pittsburgh - School of Law


University of Pittsburgh Law Review, Vol. 65, No. 63, 2003

Abstract:     
I review Eugene Volokh's recent book, Academic Legal Writing. The book is nominally directed to law students and those who teach them (and for those audiences, it is outstanding), but it also contains a number of valuable lessons for published scholars. The book is more than a writing manual, however. I argue that Professor Volokh suggests implicitly that scholarship is underappreciated as a dimension of the legal profession. A well-trained lawyer, in other words, should have experience as a scholar. The argument sheds new light on ongoing discussions about the character of law schools.
