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.

Abstract

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.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
