'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

... I pay shockingly little attention to the intellectual history of American law (such as it is).

-- Lawrence M. Friedman, the Marion Rice Kirkwood Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, in answer to a question about whether American legal history is taught differently in law schools than in history departments. The response was one in a series (available here) of Legal History Blog guest posts by Friedman, whose most recent book, The Human Rights Culture: A Study in History and Context (2011), promises much of interest to IntLawGrrls' readers.
