Application and Enforcement of Law; 7. Analysis of General Juristic Conceptions. Pound "was a leader of the group which regarded law as social engineering, the means of reconciling men's interest with the minimum of heat and friction, a view which came to be widely accepted under the name of sociological jurisprudence" (Walker). Some theorists believe that his work may have inspired Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal program. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 973.
