Abstract

This paper is a discussion of the engagement of the critical legal studies movement with law school teaching, focused on the teaching of private law. It describes how CLS criticized and offered alternatives to every element of the existing model of law teaching. Because the teaching project was driven by the broader CLS scholarly project, the critique and alternatives were thorough-going, integrated, and explicit in a way that gave them power, heightened the contrast with traditional approaches, and resulted in better teaching.
