András Jakab: Seven Role Models of Legal Scholars. Nr. 2010/1.
In the following article I will develop seven ideal-typical role models for (or caricatures of) legal scholars: the Oracle Scientist, the Prophet, the Law Reformer, the Humble Clerk, the Wise Pragmatist, the Self-Reflective, and the Media Star. Ten features will be used to characterize the ideal for each model: primary audience, ideal function, perverted form, influence on the law, prestige, measure of success, time scale, use of non-legal (moral or social/economic) arguments, precondition of existence, typical countries, and famous lawyers (representing themselves or at least proposing to other legal scholars to follow that specific role model).
