Reconstructing American Legal Realism  free pdf In the myriad choices of interpretation judges face when confronted with rules, legal realists are concerned with how doctrinal materials carry over into judicial outcomes, how the abstract is given form in judgments. What can explain past judicial behavior and predict its future course? How can law constrain judgments made by unelected judges? How can the distinction between law and politics be maintained despite the collapse of law's autonomy in its positivist rendition?
