Comments Legal Realism at Yale, 1927-1960

  • B

    This books kind of splits the difference between being an institutional history of Yale and Harvard Law Schools and a jurisprudential explanation. It mostly leans towards the former and mostly works. If the personalities weren't so famous and big, it wouldn't work. But because they're so crazy, the dry summary recounting is still relatively interesting.
