Where is Legal Scholarship Going? 

Where Should It Go? 

 Join us to explore these questions and more with Keynote Speakers Patricia Williams, Columbia Law School, and Noah Feldman, Harvard Law School.

At the outset of formal legal education, legal scholarship was largely doctrinal. Then, in the wake of legal realism, a second era emerged, with legal scholars more focused on policy than theory. During the late 20th century, there was a sharp turn toward theory. This third wave of legal scholarship was marked by increased interdisciplinary scholarship and diversity in the academy as well as growing relationships within universities. We are now in a new era of legal scholarship — Version 4.0. Northeastern University School of Law invites you to a conference exploring the future of legal scholarship through conversations among leading legal scholars.
