Abstract
Cramton, then Dean of Cornell Law School, examined the “value system” implicit in modern legal education and the implications of the value system from a “moral and religious perspective.” He supports the thesis that the value system’s “essential ingredients” include, among other things, “an instrumental approach to law and lawyering” and “faith that man, by the application of his reason and the use of democratic processes, can make the world a better place.”
