1. Law and Social Sciences

29. Association of American Law Schools. Program and Reports of Committees, 1963.

Includes a report on the work of the Joint Committee on Political Science and International Law of the American Political Science Association and the Association of American Law Schools. The Committee, composed of five lawyers and five political scientists, expressed the hope that financial support could be found to permit legal and behavioral scholars to engage in joint research "to provide a basis for evaluating Professor Grundstein's thesis that administrative law has much to learn from behavioral science." The report quotes extensively from the Grundstein article (infra, no. 38). A partial dissent by Kenneth Culp Davis was subsequently expanded into an article (infra, no. 34) published as a commentary to the Grundstein article.

30. Barkun, Michael. "Bringing the Insights of Behavioral Science to International Rules." 18 Western Reserve Law Review (1967), 1639-1660.

A part of a symposium that looks at international legal developments since the founding of Western Reserve's School of Law in 1892 and makes some projections to 1992, this article examines the development of the behavioral sciences and their relevance to the needs of international law in the contemporary and future world that differs from the world in which international law developed. The need for a breakdown of barriers between disciplines and development of interdisciplinary syntheses is stressed in terms of relevance to the contemporary and future requirements for international order.

31. Boulding, Kenneth E. The Impact of the Social Sciences. New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press, 1966, pp. vi, 117.

Exploration of the effects of modern social science on such areas as international relations, ethics, and law.

32. Colliard, C.A. "Science juridique et science politique." Revue de l'enseignement superieur (No. 4, 1965), 37-46.

Dealing with the relations between law and political science, the author sees the two tendencies of political science, the one toward observation and analysis and the other toward systemization and synthesis, as leading legal scholars to a better appreciation of their own discipline through attention to methodology and to efforts to synthesize.

33. Cowan, Thomas A. "What Law Can Do for Social Science." In William M. Evan (ed.), Law and Sociology. New York: Free Press, 1962, pp. 91-123.

Provocative discussion of the research potential of a blend of legal and social science approaches that invites the social scientist to venture into the law as the nearest thing to an orderly system of value judgments.

34. Davis, Kenneth Culp. "Behavioral Science and Administrative Law." 17 Journal of Legal Education (1965), 137-154.

A professor of law, who states (p. 137) that he requested the publication of an article by Nathan Grundstein (infra, no. 38) "and have committed myself to write this commentary on it, because law professors should be informed about both the claims and the accomplishments of behavioral science," finds the Grundstein article to be empty and some of its conclusions to be unsound. The author is disturbed about those aspects of behavioral science that are "pretending to use the methods of natural science where they are clearly a misfit" (p. 154). Reviewing (pp. 138-147) a few behavioral works, chiefly efforts to evaluate accomplishments of behavioral science, he finds nothing useful for administrative law research.

35. de Grazia, Alfred. "Law and Behavior: A Unified Approach to Their Study." 3 Prod (1960), 3-7.

A theoretical framework for relating verifiable human behavior with the law.

36. Delos, Joseph Thomas. Le probleme de civilisation — la nation. 2 vols. Montreal: Editions de l'Arbre, 1944.

A seldom mentioned theoretical treatise by a teacher of international law. Volume I attempts a sociological analysis of the nation and volume II deals with nationalism and legal order. The ideas bear the imprint of World War II and the French collapse of 1940, but are suggestive both of potential approaches to problems of international law and of potential bridges between more traditional scholarship and the newer social science scholarship that was to come to the fore in the next decade.

36-A. Dror, Yehezkel. "Law as a Tool of Directed Social Change: A Framework for Policy-Making." 13 American Behavioral Scientist (1970), 553-559.

Part of a special issue on "Law and Social Change" edited by Stuart S. Nagel, this article, based on the Lasswell-McDougal approach, argues for the study of law as an instrument of directed social change by going beyond both jurisprudence and the social sciences to employ the policy sciences and policy analysis, the latter regarded as an extension of systems analysis.

37. "Frontiers of Legal Research." Coordinated by Charles L. Ruttenberg. 7 American Behavioral Scientist (December 1963). Entire issue, pp. 55.

Papers on law and the social sciences, covering, among others, the following topics: researches in the sociology of law; scientific method and the judicial process; a primer of psychological theories holding implications for legal work; innovators in the study of the legal process; an annotated bibliography of recent innovative studies in the law.

38. Grundstein, Nathan D. "Administrative Law and the Behavioral and Management Sciences." 17 Journal of Legal Education (1965), 121-136.

This article by a political scientist examines possible uses of behavioral methodologies in a field that in the past has been dominated by practitioner-oriented problems. The author sees decision and organization theory as offering, in respect to concerns within the traditional scope of administrative law research, a better methodology and a richer set of conceptual schema than have so far been applied. Experimental control of regulatory processes through simulation, particularly simulation dealing with a relatively high order of organization complexity and with decision problems that are not trivial, is viewed as a means whereby more rigorous conceptualization may be compelled and whereby the conceptual may displace the priority of the operational in the research orientation of administrative law. For full exploitation of potential contributions of the behavioral sciences, administrative law would, in the author's opinion, have to shift from an essentially procedure- or process-oriented approach to a predominantly outcome or decision-consequences approach. At the same time, because the technology relevant to management of regulatory organizations is now a primary concern, an area exists in which management science is more relevant than behavioralism, particularly since the latter does not share the professional responsibility for the character and quality of regulatory agencies that is carried by law-based research.
