Abstract

Why should law students take a course in legal history? That's a good question, given that the subject is not tested on any state's bar exam and, apart from academia, the field's employment prospects are almost non-existent. Moreover, just about every course in law school includes at least a little bit of history (and some, like constitutional law, quite a bit), so taking a specific course in legal history isn't really necessary.
