Provides a resource for teachers interested in learning about the field of law and literature and shows how to bring its insights to bear in their classrooms, both in the liberal arts and in law schools. Essays in the first section, "Theory and History of the Movement," provide a retrospective of the field and look forward to new developments. The second section, "Model Courses," offers readers an array of possibilities for structuring courses that integrate legal issues with the study of literature, from The Canterbury Tales to current prison literature. In "Texts," the third section, guidance is provided for teaching not only written documents (novels, plays, trial reports) but also cultural objects: digital media, Native American ceremonies, documentary theater, hip-hop. The volume's contributors investigate what constitutes law and literature and how each informs the other.

Review quote

"A refreshingly cogent evaluation of the law and literature movement in all of its manifestations. . . . It is not too much to say that Teaching Law and Literature is indispensable to those entering the field, and of immense value to those who have made the field what it is." --Allen Mendenhall, Southern Humanities Review
