This piece explores the ways in which legal education moved from clerkships in law offices to receiving law degrees from academic institutions. As such, this piece also tracks the formation of legal precedent over time, which too, has shifted from rigid reliance on case law, to more reliance on academic rhetoric propounded by legal scholars.
