Table of Contents

Book Forum: Alon Harel, Why Law Matters (2014)
Special Issue: Arts and the Aesthetic in Legal History

CAL's second issue features three forums: two book forums and one article forum. The book forums are inspired by Alan Brudner's The Unity of the Common Law (rev. ed. 2013) and Hanoch Dagan's Reconstructing American Legal Realism & Rethinking Private Law Theory (2013). The article forum features James Q. Whitman's paper "The Case for Penal Modernism: Beyond Utility and Desert," along with comments by Darryl Brown and Lindsay Farmer, as well as a reply by Whitman. 

Article Forum: James Q. Whitman on Penal Modernism
Book Forum: Hanoch Dagan, Reconstructing American Legal Realism & Rethinking Private Law Theory (2013)
Book Forum: Alan Brudner, The Unity of the Common Law (rev. ed. 2013)

The journal's inaugural issue is devoted to the topic Critical Analysis of Law and the New Interdisciplinarity. The issue features papers from an international group of contributors not only from law, but also from other disciplines. It aims to capture some of the diversity of approaches to engaging with law as a discipline, and to locate within these projects the conception of bilateral interdisciplinarity in and on law that drives CAL.


The New Historical Jurisprudence issue highlights and encourages a trend in recent legal scholarship, or rather scholarship on law, that--like the original historical jurisprudence--pursues a historical analysis of law, as a form of critical analysis of law, rather than legal history, as applied historiography. Generated by theorists with a historical sensibility, and historians with theoretical curiosity, this emerging body of work exploits and challenges the intersection of history and jurisprudence in innovative and exciting ways.
