Law is social control, and law devised without direct reference to the facts of life of the people controlled is not likely to be successfully administered. This is especially true in the modern world where social conditions are being changed with kaleidoscopic rapidity, while laws are changing slowly if at all. If all the professions using science have so changed man's environment, why does it not make sense to give the scientific method a improve law and government? The means of accomplishing this have been discussed at length elsewhere and need not be repeated here; but the impact of these facts upon legal education need to be briefly mentioned.
