Abstract

In the 2nd half century, LSA should entertain the death/rebirth of “law as a tool for social change.” We innovate by examining the artifacts of an instrumental genre of knowledge and by investigating our impulse to invent varieties of normative technologies.

Keywords: Law and Society; Legal Instrumentalism; STS;
