The Review hails the entrance of the T.C. Williams School of Law into its second century of educative endeavor, and commends to its readership the awareness of the need for socio-legal interaction. That the law constitutes a significant regulator of interpersonal behavior is unquestionable. It is to be hoped, however, that our three interdisciplinary articles will help alleviate such jurisprudential myopia as might tend to overestimate the effectiveness of the law as an instrument of social control in the eyes of its disciples. In our changing society, the methodology and knowledge attributable to the social sciences must necessarily play an increasingly important role in the adjudication of controversies. A persistent demand for greater interdisciplinary understanding and cooperation can result in a more effective body of procedural law, and a more responsive corpus of substantive principle. We heartily endorse these objectives as laudable.
