Reviews

"Readers looking for an exploration of the complexities of the relationship of law and art as well as an exploration of the past and future of that relationship will find it in Law and the Arts, which contains articles on topics as diverse as literary expression in cyberspace. It is unusual and especially valuable in bringing together scholarship on literature and on other modes of artistic expression....[M]any in law and the humanities will find that this edited collection is a wonderful resource."-Choice
?Overall this volume takes bits from the other sides of our lives as lawyers. It reminds us that law was never the refuge of mere mechanics. The arts and humanities are inescapably a part of us and often animate our work in the profession. Perhaps some of us knew this before applying to law school, but forgot the message along the way. For this reminder we are grateful to Susan Tiefenbrun and her collegues.?-New York Law Journal
