Lande highlights three of Marc Galanter's works to illustrate qualities that seem especially worth emulating. He includes extended excerpts of his writing because his concepts and language are so evoctive that paraphrasing often does not do them justice. Galanter's works that Lande focuses, include the classic articles, "Why the "Haves" Come Out Ahead: Speculations on the Limits of Legal Change"; and "Case Congregations and Their Careers". The professor's recent book, Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes and Legal Culture, is also featured. The book is the culmination of much of his work on American law.
