Why Do We take So Much Upon Ourselves? The Case for a Prescriptive Pre-Law Year
Pyke, John R. (1997) Why Do We take So Much Upon Ourselves? The Case for a Prescriptive Pre-Law Year. ALTA Newsletter, 3(2), pp. 1-2.
The article argues that a lawyer needs to know something about politics, history, logic, ethics, sociology and economics, and that rather than law lecturers trying to teach these in 'contextual' units in a Law degree, law students should spend at least a year in an Arts faculty learning something about these disciplines.

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
