August 10, 2018 New Legal Realism

New Legal Realism conferences have focused on methodology, on the relationship between empirical research and legal theory, on legal approaches to poverty and land ownership, and on the legal treatment of gender-related issues in employment.   NLR scholarship has been featured in panels held at the annual meetings of the American Association of Law Schools and the Law & Society Association.  NLR scholars were active in forming a collaborative research network, supported by the Law & Society Association, focusing on “Realist and Empirical Legal Methods.”
