Alan Bloom and the American Law School, 73 Cornell Law Review 1038 (1988)

Abstract

Allan Bloom is a very frustrated and unhappy fellow, and his despair is evident on virtually every page of his recent best-seller, The Closing of the American Mind. Many in legal education share Professor Bloom's despair, as we increasingly hear educators complain about the incursion of new ideas into the classrooms of America's elite law schools. This review explores the relationship between Bloom's world view and the "feeling of malaise" gripping American law schools.
