Is "Logic" Culturally Based? A Contrastive, International Approach to the U.S. Law Classroom.
Ramsfield, Jill J.
Journal of Legal Education, v47 n2 p157-204 Jun 1997
International students in American legal education may need explicit information about our legal culture and its logic. A contrastive approach to studying law can serve all students by putting cultural and disciplinary differences in relief, revealing roots of our own logic and biases. Such an approach requires law faculty to explore other legal cultures, but may produce better learning. (MSE)
