Llewellyn’s Code As a Reflection of Legal Consciousness

Curtis Nyquist

Article PDF:

This essay attempts to capture legal consciousness at mid-twentieth century through an analysis of the 1957 draft of Articles 1 and 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.). The 1957 draft was primarily the work of Karl Llewellyn, the foremost legal realist, who for more than thirty years had critiqued CLT and the progressives. The Code is Llewellyn’s most important work in contract and the Code has been enormously important at the level of rules and also as a precursor of contemporary legal consciousness.
