This chapter explores the sometimes rocky relationship between the Law School and Yale University during the middle years of the twentieth century. The relationship was troubled by continuing anxieties about the place of professional education in a university devoted to pure research, and by worries that the association of certain faculty with left-liberal causes might jeopardize the reputation—and support—of the University among its more conservative graduates.

Keywords:   Yale Law School, Yale University, professional education, law faculty, left-liberal causes
