Changes in jurisprudential theory have led to changes in the nature of legal education and scholarship. These changes, in turn, have opened the door to psychologists in law schools. The traditions of law schools differ substantially from those of social science departments. In the light of these differences, the authors, themselves members of law faculties, explore potential contributions of psychologists to legal education and scholarship.
