Summary

One of the most significant contributions that scholarship can offer is to call attention to something that everyone sees but no one has yet noticed. Malcolm Feeley’s work with Terrence Halliday, Lucien Karpik and Setsuo Miyazawa on the liberal legal complex falls into this favored category (Halliday, Karpik and Feeley 2007; Feeley and Miyazawa 2007). Judges and lawyers are among the most visible members of our society, they are known to play important roles, and their interactions are sufficiently familiar to serve as the subject matter of movies, television shows and popular fiction. But it is only recently, as a result of Feeley’s work with his colleagues, that the relationship between judges and lawyers has been recognized as a functional component of political liberalism.
