Abstract

There is a saying: “You never know what you find when you scratch the surface of an idea,” The articles in this symposium scratch the surface of a simple idea: our legal culture is a storytelling culture. Practitioners and appellate judges are storytellers, and legal academics are increasingly sensitive to storytelling forms and aesthetics. Some scholars are becoming storytellers themselves.

Keywords: Legal Culture, Storytelling
