This chapter describes the increasing involvement of the Yale Law School faculty in the outside world of law and politics, in the exciting milieu of the early New Deal. It links the growing activism of the faculty to the school's emphasis on public law, and to a distinctively practical conception of legal education, which, even before the legal realists made it an article of faith, appears to have been embraced, rhetorically at least, by Deans Rogers and Swan.
