A Theory of Law

Many lawyers encounter difficulty finding support for a proposition integral to an argument presented to a court.  If you find yourself in that situation, Orin Kerr, Fred C. Stevenson Research Professor at George Washington University Law School, has offered a universal tool to solve the problem, his A Theory of Law.

But despite the utility of his offering, it is not with critics.  See, for example, this Micro-Symposium on Orin Kerr’s “A Theory of Law.”  See also Part 2 of the Micro-Symposium.

The non-lawyers out there who followed these links may now be worried about lawyers’ senses of humor.  In consolation, consider that it may be only a subset of lawyers of which I am a member.
