Book Review: Lawyers, Law Schools and the Public Service, 96 University of Pennsylvania Law Review 909 (1948)


In this extraordinarily valuable report the Director of Studies in the Professions at the Russell Sage Foundation gives a clear picture of the relation between what lawyers do in the United States government and how law schools prepare them to do it. Official agencies provide one of the major careers open to talent, and especially to the talent molded or warped by the standard law schools. Miss Brown begins by reviewing the facts about lawyers in government and ends by evaluating the facts and fancies of legal instruction.
