Conference: The Future of Legal Scholarship

Northeastern School of Law, in conjunction with the Journal of Legal Education, will host the Future of Legal Scholarship conference on April 29, 2016 starting at 9:30am.

The scholarly mission of the legal academy is under unprecedented attack from all corners. Critics include the universities in which law schools are housed, the legal profession, the bench, law scholars themselves and law schools’ cost-conscious critics. So what’s the cause for complaint? Traditionally, legal scholarship has been valued, required, pursued and rewarded in the legal academy. Has the academy changed so fundamentally that we now need to reassess law as an academic discipline, as a subject of study and as an intellectual institution? Moving forward, how can legal scholars contribute to the academic pursuit of knowledge and to the pursuit of justice?
