Welcome to the blog of the “big tent” New Legal Realists. We share the Law -and-Society movement’s approach to interdisciplinary legal studies: we believe that all of the social sciences have a contribution to make to our understanding of law. And now, more than ever, we need to use all of the methods available to understand what law is doing in our lives and our world.
Like the old Legal Realists, our door is open to multiple approaches and ideas — and you don’t need a membership card. On our webpage and at conferences, we hope to encourage careful and rigorous thinking about how to use social science to improve our understanding of law.
