Law and Politics

Professor Brian Tamanaha suggests that perhaps constitutional law should not be taught in law schools and notes:

Students who learn that constitutional law is infused with politics (though it cannot be reduced to that) might wrongly come to think that all law is like that, an easy error to fall into because constitutional law has so much prominence and attention within the legal academy.

Well, they would not be wrong about the reams of dead trees, being fully imbued with politics, shipped from the loading docks of legislatures far and wide.
