Abstract

What is “new legal realism?” How, if at all, does it differ from work in law and society? Does it have much to do with concerns of law professors? Where does it stand in the law school work now and in the immediate future? What, if anything, do we gain by turning toward this approach to legal study?

Keywords: New Legal Realism, Law and Society, Legal Study, Meaning of Law
