Karl Llewellyn on Marriage and the Family
For this week's Faculty Podcast, we invite you to step into the Wayback Machine for a glimpse of the Law School some 50 years ago. One of the leading legal scholars of his generation, Karl Llewellyn taught at Chicago from 1951 until his death in 1962. In this undated classroom recording, he takes an often light-hearted look at the implicit legal structures of what was at the time considered the "typical" American family. Listen to the end, and you'll also hear him discuss with his students their upcoming exam.
