Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on developments in legal studies since 1960 in the United States and England (meaning England specifically, rather than the United Kingdom). As regards the United States, legal scholarship of the first half of the twentieth century forms an important backdrop to what happened during the second half of the century, and so it is almost inevitable that there is contextual work to be undertaken. English legal scholarship of the first half of the twentieth century has received less attention, perhaps because the study of law there remained — certainly in comparison with developments in the United States — a fledgling professional activity until after World War II.

Keywords: legal studies, legal scholarship, United States, England
