Klare

Karl Klare is a legal theorist prominent in the field of Critical Legal Studies (CLS). While involved in the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1960s, Klare earned a bachelor's degree from Columbia University ('67) and a Master's degree from Yale University ('68). Klare graduated from Harvard Law School in 1975. In addition to serving as the Matthews Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Law at Northeastern University School of Law, Klare has taught at the University of British Columbia, the University of Michigan, the University of Toronto, and other institutions. Klare was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1983, and has produced scholarship, planned conferences, and developed curriculum in the field of Critical Legal Studies.

The Karl Klare Papers document Klare's work in the Critical Legal Studies (CLS) movement. The papers include correspondence and planning materials for CLS conferences, publications and readings assembled for CLS conferences, as well as class readings and syllabi. Readings and publications represent the bulk of this collection. Among the correspondence are a folder of materials memorializing postmodern feminist legal theorist Mary Joe Frug, and planning materials for the U.S./Poland Conference on Rights, Legality, and Democratization.
