The Leftist Attack on Jurisprudence


–“Academic trends in legal scholarship do not occur in a vacuum, nor are law schools and legal scholars autonomous. To understand what has been going on in contemporary legal theory, one must look to what has been going on at the university. American university campuses have recently witnessed a form of organized dissent not seen since the turbulent 1960s and 1970s. Commentators report that “[a]n intellectual and cultural revolution is now underway at American Universities.”¹ The revolution has been stirred in part by cultural changes unfolding in American society brought about by the diversity movement.”
