Incorporating Feminist Perspectives Throughout Law School Curriculum
In law schools across the United States, feminist perspectives are glaringly absent from the curriculum – from the first year’s core subjects through the upper-division specialty, experiential, and elective courses. The formal study of feminist jurisprudence, if it occurs at all, is typically relegated to the occasional specialized gender-focused seminar offered at some institutions. Today, traditional first-year doctrinal courses are almost uniformly taught using the well-established case method. The content of the casebooks (including the cases and supplementary notes) for these courses may vary somewhat from author to author.
