This Essay does not focus on legal theory in law schools, the common core of legal scholarship as practiced in law schools, nor the trend towards interdisciplinary research as reflected in the “law and” movements in law schools. Rather, it looks outside of law schools, law reviews, and internal legal discourse. It examines the role that legal scholars play in interdisciplinary debates on legal issues. Do they attend such debates, and if so, do these scholars offer a unique voice based on legal theory or on other tools or sensitivities provided by the legal discipline?
