A nasty thought. Stories are important to law because lawyers, being
trained as advocates, are likely to be better at story telling than
social scientists. Because of their training, most social scientists
are better than lawyers at gathering and assessing the reliability of
more generalized data. Thus, the greater the role of stories in
making policy (constitutional or otherwise), the greater the role of
legal training and lawyers.
