(p.ix) Introduction
History of the Yale Law School
Anthony T. Kronman
Yale University Press

This book emerged from a lecture series on the history of the Yale Law School, sponsored by the school in the spring of 2001 as part of Yale University's tercentennial celebrations. A small group of historians were invited to address an aspect of the Law School's history of particular interest to him or her, giving some attention to chronological coverage. The goal was to illuminate a few specific episodes in the history of the Yale Law School in a manner that would sharpen our curiosity about the rest and remind us of how little we really know about the school's career and the evolution of its modern personality. The six provocative chapter gathered in this volume may serve as a tantalizing prelude to the comprehensive history of the Yale Law School that remains to be constructed.
