Macaulay & Mertz Start New Legal Realism Conversations Blog

UW Law Profs Stewart Macaulay and Elizabeth Mertz have started a blog called New Legal Realism Conversations. The blog is an extension of the NLR Project webpage started in 2009 and will feature commentary from current contributors and highlights of important legal realist scholarship.
Some past topics include:

  • Leading Economists Criticize Rational Choice Models
  • Why Law Needs Empirical Anthropology
  • Stewart Macaulay’s Jazz Picks
  • Legal Research Funded by Big Oil?

For those interested in Macaulay’s work, note that in October, the UW Law School is hosting a conference entitled the “Empirical and Lyrical: Revisiting the Contracts Scholarship of Stewart Macaulay.”
