    I read your article on Yale's new Ph.D. in Law program and found it fascinating. I always thought of the J.D. as a doctoral degree. Yale's curriculum says the two are not equivalent. I see the practice of law, mediation, serving on the bench, and so on as being invested in research and writing but this new program says otherwise.

    Do you have any other interviews that relate to this viewpoint or contradict it?
