Can Law Be a Source of Insight for Other Academic Disciplines?
Washington University Jurisprudence Review (2016)
  • Stephen M. Feldman
Law has been a borrower but not a supplier. Law schools, in effect,
have been located on one-way streets, with ideas flowing in but nothing
going out. This essay is intended to begin a dialogue that could change the
one-way streets between law schools and other university departments into
two-way streets. I want to demonstrate that legal and jurisprudential
studies can be a source of ideas for scholars in other fields. In particular,
this essay argues that the legal concept of the burden of proof can
illuminate disputes between theorists of modernism and postmodernism.
