The Uses of Psychoanalysis in Law: The Force of Jay Katz’s Example, 6 Yale J. Health Pol’y L. & Ethics 401 (2006)

Abstract

Jay Katz has been one of the most profound and enduring influences on my life as a legal scholar. His influence began at the very moment I entered the Yale Law School as a student in 1962. My understanding of the uses of psychoanalysis in legal analysis begins with the memory of my first encounter with him. I believe that my personal experience mirrors more generally how Jay came to influence all of his students-those lucky enough to sit in his classes as well as those who have only encountered him through his writings.
