In the clinical literature, one of the most oft-quoted of non-lawyers has been Donald A. Sch6n, a professor at MIT's School of Architecture and Planning who did a highly original investigation into how professionals of all kinds think and educate. In this journal' and in others and even overseas, he has been cited almost routinely. Most of these are passing references, although sometimes a significant part of an article's direction appears to have been influenced by Sch6n's thinking. So many law school teachers have been Sch6n fans for so long that for the 1992 annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, he was invited to speak on building pedagogical bridges between theory and practice.
