Vance, Richard P.; Prichard, Robert W.
Journal of Legal Education, v42 n2 p233-39 Jun 1992
A survey of 144 first-year law students from 78 undergraduate institutions investigated their level of cultural literacy. On average, students identified 24.1 percent of the 250 test items correctly, with widely varying error patterns by subject. It is concluded that students come to law school without enough factual information about our culture. (MSE)
