NOTICE: Macdonald on Legal Studies Programmes

Roderick Macdonald, a member of our Advisory Board, has recently posted 'Does Law Have a Place in the Modern University?: Or Every Great University Needs a Legal Studies Programme' on SSRN.

The brief abstract reads:

Universities are facing increasing pressure to be relevant for students entering the job market. Many see the idea of a liberal arts education as doomed to disappear. Yet law faculties are under increasing pressure to become less professional and to broaden their curriculum with interdisciplinary courses in the liberal arts. Might it be that the study of law will reclaim the central role that it played in the University a millennium ago?
