In this notable volume, well-known authorities from the worlds of law and literature take a probing look at how and why stories are told in the law. Such experts as Alan Dershowitz, Martha Minow, Janet Malcolm, Catharine MacKinnon, and John Hollander discuss how narratives presented at trials and in Supreme Court opinions are told and listened to, and how they affect legal thinking and judgment.

"Those who are unfamiliar or untutored in narrative and rhetoric will find the contributions accessible and provocative. Those who are more experienced will enjoy sorting out the disagreements among the contributors and acquire a clearer sense of what is at stake here". -- Ira L. Strauber, The Law and Politics Book Review

"Law's Stories offers an unusually rich perspective on the developing scholarship of narrative and rhetoric in the law ... The book succeeds in bringing to the forefront of 'law as literature' studies a very crucial aspect of investigation and will undoubtedly become one of the touchstones of law and literature scholarship". -- Wendy Chon, New York Law Journal

"Indispensable to anyone interested in legal reasoning". -- Choice

"Well edited and highly readable". -- Judge Richard A. Posner, University of Chicago Law Review

"Each contribution is impressively individualistic, and the grateful reader can hardly avoid being drawn into strong-minded, largely unresolvable, controversy". -- Thomas Morawetz, Connecticut Law Review
