Burnett, Collins W.; Matthews, W. L., Jr.
College and University, v57 n2 p197-207 Win 1982
A legalistic culture has become a part of the academic community of the 1980s. Possible explanations include: what happens in the larger society is reflected in the academic subsystem, a legalistic syndrome, impact of state and federal governments, widening scope of university service, tight academic job market, efforts to democratize academe, conflicts in role perceptions, collective bargaining, and increased costs.
