Via my colleague Will Baude on Twitter, I came across this interesting conversation between Louis Michael Seidman (Georgetown) and Mark Tushnet (Harvard) reflecting on their half-century in legal education. Tushnet, unsurprisingly, overstates the significance of Critical Legal Studies (which has had no discernible longterm impact, unlike legal realism), but that's a quibble. Do see the discussion at pp. 24 ff. about "corruption" in the legal academy.
