This is the preface to the book LEGAL REALISM TO LAW IN ACTION: INNOVATIVE LAW COURSES AT UW-MADISON. This book is a collection of papers and interviews written for an event honoring Professor Herman Goldstein who has since passed away. It is about four innovative courses, including Goldstein’s, developed by faculty of the Wisconsin Law School from 1950-1970. These courses reflected the goals of legal realism, an emphasis on law in action, and the growing importance of social science and empirical research (law and social science).
