The Stories We Tell Ourselves in Law.
Elkins, James R.
Journal of Legal Education, v40 n1-2 p47-66 Mar-Jun 1990
Stories give meaning to our lives and create community, offering other worlds of relation and possibilities, contexts for human action, sentiment, and feeling. Until recently, law and literature were assumed to be radically different kinds of intellectual activity, and in law, fiction has not been used to teach important lessons. (MSE)
