Articles by UW Law Profs Macaulay and Galanter Considered Top Works in American Legal Thought

The Wisconsin Law Journal has a nice article on UW Law profs, Stewart Macaulay and Marc Galanter, who each had an article included in the "The Canon of American Legal Thought," an anthology looking at the top 20 works in American legal thought since 1890.

From the article:

Macaulay's contribution was his 1963 article, "Non-Contractual Relations in Business," and Galanter's contribution was the 1974 essay, "Why the Haves Come out Ahead: Speculations on the Limits of Legal Change."

"We selected what we thought were the deepest and most influential essays," said Fisher, who is a professor of Intellectual Property Law and Director of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. "The articles by Macaulay and Galanter -- both of them crucial in launching the 'Law and Society' movement -- easily fit those criteria."
