Humanity and Law

In Law and Humanity, Michael Serota argues that legal scholarship and the humanities can and should complement each other. His response to Christine Stark's Run, a creative memoir published in a Law Review Symposium issue on the topic of human trafficking, argues that placing a survivor's memoir at the beginning of the issue impacts the way readers understand the articles that follow. Serota suggests that incorporating art and narrative into legal research gives a depth and perspective to scholarship that helps keep it connected to humanity.
