You’ve gone to college, published your dissertation, and now you’re either on tenure track OR you’ve gotten tenure. What’s life like as a legal scholar? Life of the Law traveled to New Orleans for the Law and Society Association’s annual meeting where more than 2,000 law and social science scholars from across the globe got together to share their work, and on Friday night, personal stories about their lives.
