Notes

This seminar will examine the major tendencies in legal thought in the United States starting from the work of Holmes to present notions of post modernism. The examination will focus on the genealogies of this thought through law, i.e, how each tendency "begat" the next. The second genealogy that we will look at is the way in which the changes responded to changes in culture and politics. Included in the analysis will be Langdell's formalism, American Legal Realism, McDougal and Lasswell's policy analyses, Fuller's "natural law" and its impact on Dworkin, the Legal Process School /inter alia/.
