Introduction: New Legal Realism at Ten Years and Beyond


From UC Irvine Law Review

This symposium paper commemorates the tenth year that a body of research has formally flown under the banner of New Legal Realism (NLR). We are very pleased that the UC Irvine Law Review has elected to publish these articles and memorialize the 10th Anniversary NLR Conference that took place in Irvine in August 2014, with the support of the American Bar Foundation and the University of California, Irvine School of Law (UCI Law). The four articles in this symposium and the concluding essay make important scholarly contributions and help in different ways to continue to define the NLR project while fostering its further development. As we will suggest in this Introduction, we believe there are good reasons to keep this project moving in the direction that these articles chart.
