A decade-old work of fiction by Humanistic Studies Prof. Rebecca Meacham appearing in the current issue of a professional journal with “Legal Studies” in the title? Well, yes. The title story from her 2004 short story collection, Let’s Do, has been reprinted in Volume 37, no 1 of The Legal Studies Forum. The journal from the American Legal Studies Association promotes “humanistic, critical, and trans-disciplinary approaches to legal studies.” The story “Let’s Do” features a failed lawyer and an exceptionally bad interview at a law firm, among other things.
