Abstract

This joint work contains the responses of several authors regarding Dean Paul Carrington’s article entitled “Of Law and the River.” These viewpoints, from members of the Critical Legal Studies movement, emphasize the importance of varying viewpoints in legal education and decry a blind allegiance to traditional fundamentals of the practice of law outside of law school.

Keywords: legal education
