This volume analyzes the nature of the law school in the university environment, confronting the tension between the vision of law school as a training ground for new lawyers versus the vision of law school place for original scholarship and academic discourse. In examining the role of the law school in modern society, sections are devoted to a myriad of controversial areas of legal study, such as feminist theory, race theory, and post-modernism. This volume offers scholars of legal education a map to the future of law schools.
