He was a professor of law at Yale for 41 years and was one of the leading proponents of the "legal realism" approach, railing against overly abstract and theoretical legal arguments. He was a harsh critic of the legal profession; his articles include "Goodbye to Law Reviews," published in the 1936 Virginia Law Review, and the 1939 tract "Woe Unto You, Lawyers."
