This seminar is intended principally to introduce prospective law teachers to various kinds of contemporary legal scholarship. It may also prove useful to editors of student publications and to students with an avocational interest in scholarly writing. The seminar will explore the extent to which, and the various ways in which, professors of law may usefully contribute to legal analysis and important public debates through academic publications. It is therefore intended both to offer students a sustained examination of the scholarly side of legal academics and to offer students an opportunity to prepare a work of legal scholarship that may proceed toward eventual publication. Enrollment limited.
