The process of paralegalizing the American legal academy is now complete. It was inevitable. A course in Contracts does not a complete lawyer make. The curricular marginalization of two of the other critical enforceable private relationships, namely Agency and Trust, began in earnest in the law schools in the 1960s. In Loring and Rounds: A Trustee’s Handbook § 8.25 (2012) [Wolters Kluwer]), Charles E. Rounds, Jr. elaborates. [The main focus of the Handbook, which was first published in 1898, however, is not legal education but the rights, duties and obligations of trustees and their beneficiaries. The 2012 edition, due out in December of 2011, will be a fully-integrated, flexible-covered bound volume of well over 1500 pages. It replaces the Handbook’s bulky ring binder platform, a recent innovation that contemplated yearly supplementation. The Handbook’s aforementioned § 8.25 is reprinted below in its entirety.
