According to my cable guide, Court TV even has its very own channel where people can watch legal trivia around the clock. If we include fictional crime and law shows, the genre covers well over half of my television channels. The Dragnet and Perry Mason of my childhood have given way to a crowded field.

Others, like Judith Butler (1990), argue that the dichotomization of sex into male and female is itself a sociolegal creation. Pointing to a continuum of anatomical traits and body types, Butler contends that law and culture impose the male / female duality on that continuum and in the process naturalize it.

Adopting Weber’s model of increasing rationalization in modern society, Dezalay and Garth argue that the charisma and elite credentials of the “grand old men” who traditionally made up this transnational arbitration club continue to provide it with an aura of genteel legitimacy, but that its actual operation has been rendered highly technocratic and rational.
