Book Review: Cases and Other Materials on Legislation, 58 YALE L.J. 1414 (1949)
Preparation of a casebook on legislation, or the conduct of a course in that
field, demands more than ordinary attention to the question of what the
objectives of the course should be. Unless the instructor knows what he is
after and keeps a firm grip on the material, a course in legislation is likely to
wander almost anywhere and hence arrive nowhere. The course is a newcomer
in the law school curriculum and there appears to be no particular
agreement upon what it should attempt to do or how it should be taught.
