Hollander on Legal Education and Interdisciplinary Legal Scholarship at Princeton

I've only just stumbled across An Unexpected Story: The History and Origins of Princeton’s Long-standing Tradition of Interdisciplinary Legal Scholarship, by David A. Hollander, Law & Legal Studies Librarian, Princeton University Library.  The article “traces the development of Princeton University’s largely unknown tradition of interdisciplinary legal education and scholarship. After discussing the history of Princeton’s now-forgotten law school and the multiple attempts to revive it, he then examines how legal education and research have always been an integral part of academics at Princeton, and how the strong presence of interdisciplinary legal studies at Princeton today springs from this fascinating history.”
