Rapoport: Where Have All the (Legal) Stories Gone?

Nancy B. Rapoport (UNLV) has posted Where Have All the (Legal) Stories Gone?  (My answer: here.) Here is the abstract:

This essay examines whether law schools are doing a good job of teaching the art of storytelling to law students.

From the article:

Every lawyer who wants to explain to the IRS why a particular tax reduction strategy is legitimate is engaging in storytelling.[Fn.12]

Fn.12: And I’m using “storytelling” here, as in the rest of this essay, in its literal sense—as telling a story, not as “lying.” That second meaning is not something that I’d encourage a lawyer to do.
