Abstract

This essay explores the ubiquitous law school institution, “The Faculty Workshop,” as an entrée into and manifestation of contemporary American legal thought. The Faculty Workshop is examined both as a regulator and expression of legal thought - at once governance system and symptom. We close by discussing “Stage 4.”

Keywords: Foucault, legal thought, theory, knowledge-practices, discipline, rankings, nihilism, lifeworld, systems, Amy Chua
