Solum on Belle on "Packaging"
Posted by Christine Hurt

My colleague Larry Solum has a very interesting post today responding to a blogo-rhetorical question from Belle Lettre about preparing a scholarship "package" that will assist her, an aspiring legal academic.  Larry challenges aspiring professors to think more about "toolkits" than "packages":

Increasingly, what separates candidates is the possession of some significant set of interdisciplinary tools--the ability to do law and economics, normative legal theory (moral and political philosophy), to do empirical work (data acquisition and analysis), to deploy PPT (positive political theory or "game theory" applied to political problems), and so forth. If I were advising someone who was just starting a postgraduate legal education, I would counsel that their projects should enable them to develop and master some transdisciplinary tool set.

Read the whole thing.
