A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library Jan 2019

A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The purpose of this bibliography is to record in one place the substantial body of scholarship produced by the current faculty at the Catholic University, Columbus School of Law. From its humble beginnings under the tutelage of founding Dean William Callyhan Robinson, through its adolescent period when, like so many other American law schools, it was trying to define its pedagogical niche, to its eventual merger with the Columbus University Law School in 1954, the law school at Catholic University has always retained a scholarly and remarkably productive faculty. The sheer quantity of writing, the breadth of research and the ...


Essentials Of A Publication Agreement, Stephen Wolfson, Mariann Burright Dec 2018

Essentials Of A Publication Agreement, Stephen Wolfson, Mariann Burright

Presentations

This session will focus on authors' rights and publishing contracts. When academic publishers agree to publish academic works, they require the authors to sign agreements before doing so. In the past, these “agreements” – contracts, by another name – often have contained provisions that primarily benefit the publishers, including assigning intellectual property rights in the works to the publishers and limiting authors’ abilities to use their works after transferring their rights. Faculty authors often ask librarians for their guidance on how to read and negotiate publication agreements. As such, this session will discuss common provisions found in publishing contracts to help clarify ...


Foreword, Matthew Diller Dec 2018

Foreword, Matthew Diller

Fordham Law Review

In 2012 our colleague Robert J. Kaczorowski published Fordham University School of Law: A History. As we read Bob’s book, discussed it, and thought about it, we realized emphatically that it not only synthesized the history of Fordham Law School in a superbly illuminating way, but that it is one of the best books to date on the history of twentieth-century legal education in America. It compellingly tells the story of American legal education through the lens of an urban law school founded to expand access to the legal profession for groups that had been shut out of the ...


History And Harvard Law School, Bruce A. Kimball, Daniel R. Coquillette Dec 2018

History And Harvard Law School, Bruce A. Kimball, Daniel R. Coquillette

Fordham Law Review

In their seminal article, Alfred Konefsky and John Henry Schlegel saw institutional histories of law schools as the graveyard of academic reputations. So why write institutional histories? Due to the leadership of Robert Kaczorowski and William Nelson, and the generosity of Fordham University School of Law and New York University School of Law, an important conference took place between July 2 and July 4, 2018, at New York University’s Villa La Pietra outside of Florence. The purpose was to encourage good institutional history and to define its value. We had recently published the first volume of a new history ...


Essay: Developing Appropriate Standards For Achieving Diversity In Faculty Appointments, Guido Calabresi Dec 2018

Essay: Developing Appropriate Standards For Achieving Diversity In Faculty Appointments, Guido Calabresi

Fordham Law Review

I am writing today to talk about diversity within law school faculties. And when I say “diversity,” I mean all sorts of diversities, not just the ones that most of those who address the issue tend to focus on. I have, for many years, been thinking about the different types of diversities that seem crucial to a law school, and the appropriate ways of achieving them. Part I lists the categories of diversity that I think are important to considering diversity within law school faculties. It then indicates a problem that inheres with this list. Part II suggests how different ...


Women In The Legal Academy: A Brief History Of Feminist Legal Theory, Robin West Dec 2018

Women In The Legal Academy: A Brief History Of Feminist Legal Theory, Robin West

Fordham Law Review

Women’s entry into the legal academy in significant numbers—first as students, then as faculty—was a 1970s and 1980s phenomenon. During those decades, women in law schools struggled: first, for admission and inclusion as individual students on a formally equal footing with male students; then for parity in their numbers in classes and on faculties; and, eventually, for some measure of substantive equality across various parameters, including their performance and evaluation both in and in front of the classroom, as well as in the quality of their experiences as students and faculty members and in the benefits to ...


Second Mode Inclusion Claims In The Law Schools, Kenneth W. Mack Dec 2018

Second Mode Inclusion Claims In The Law Schools, Kenneth W. Mack

Fordham Law Review

During the past half-decade, law school student demands for changes in legal education to address issues of diversity and inclusion have both proliferated and grown insistent. Although the demands are somewhat varied, they have sometimes stretched far beyond the admission and hiring of more students and faculty from minority groups. Students have advocated for basic changes in the way that law schools operate in order to make them more inclusive of groups that have been historically marginalized within these institutions.


Subsidiarity And Federalism: The Relationship Between Law Schools And Their Universities, John Sexton Dec 2018

Subsidiarity And Federalism: The Relationship Between Law Schools And Their Universities, John Sexton

Fordham Law Review

In his book on the history of Fordham University School of Law, Bob Kaczorowski does not take an explicit position on how decision-making authority on matters ranging from resource utilization to curriculum development should be allocated between a law school and its university. Rather, he offers in detail a story and extensive evidence that tends to reflect and support the view traditionally taken by the American Bar Association (ABA), the vast majority of law faculty, and most law school deans on the subject: listen, you folks over there at the university—we know what we are doing, so just leave ...


The Importance Of Scholarship To Law School Excellence, William E. Nelson Dec 2018

The Importance Of Scholarship To Law School Excellence, William E. Nelson

Fordham Law Review

As we have learned from Dan Coquillette, Bob Kaczorowski, and John Sexton, access to substantial funding is undoubtedly a prerequisite for a law school to enjoy excellence. Funding, that is, is a necessary, but not sufficient condition for excellence. Something else—intellectual vision—is also required.


Fordham University School Of Law: A Case Study Of Legal Education In Twentieth-Century America, Robert J. Kaczorowski Dec 2018

Fordham University School Of Law: A Case Study Of Legal Education In Twentieth-Century America, Robert J. Kaczorowski

Fordham Law Review

This paper focuses on three themes that shaped legal education in twentieth-century America and roughly organizes the topics of this conference. These themes emerged when I was researching and writing the history of Fordham University School of Law. Consequently, I will discuss Fordham’s history as a case study focused on the following themes: 1. The importance of university relations and funding to enhancing the quality of a law school; 2. The importance of scholarship and the changing nature of scholarship in legal education; and 3. The importance of diversity and the changing nature of diversity in legal education.

Dean's Desk: Iu Maurer Programs Supporting Careers In Cybersecurity, Austen L. Parrish Nov 2018

Dean's Desk: Iu Maurer Programs Supporting Careers In Cybersecurity, Austen L. Parrish

Austen Parrish (2014-)

A recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report estimated a near 30 percent growth in coming years for information security professionals, far outpacing most other job types. While Indiana University has long recognized the importance of data security and privacy, multiple new initiatives are ensuring that the next generation of chief information security officers, systems analysts, privacy professionals and others will come from our law school.

One of the ways the law school is leading the way is through the university’s new master of science in cybersecurity risk management. That degree program combines the resources of three of IU’s ...

Law Students’ Experiences In An Experiential Law And Research Program In Australia, Nicky Mcwilliam, Tracey Yeung, Annabelle Green Nov 2018

Law Students’ Experiences In An Experiential Law And Research Program In Australia, Nicky Mcwilliam, Tracey Yeung, Annabelle Green

Legal Education Review

This paper details a small study of the experiences of 28 undergraduate and postgraduate law students who participated in a student-based research team program. The program employed an interdisciplinary approach to cooperative learning strategies, with students working together in a shared learning experience on a practice-based research project at the Faculty of Law, University of Technology Sydney. Within the framework of a research area related to alternative dispute resolution practices in the legal system, students experienced real-life reference points for learning the law, and were offered a chance to apply relevant legal theory. Whilst the overwhelmingly positive findings must be ...


Do (Underperforming) Students Benefit From A Flipped Lecture? Evidence From Business Students Studying Company Law, Félix E. Mezzanotte Nov 2018

Do (Underperforming) Students Benefit From A Flipped Lecture? Evidence From Business Students Studying Company Law, Félix E. Mezzanotte

Legal Education Review

In a company law course, the face-to-face lecture was flipped with the purpose of improving the lecture experience of students and their preparedness to engage in deep-learning seminar activities after the lecture. The flipped lecture consisted of a bundle of three tasks: a set of three pre-recorded videos narrating the lecture slides, an online graded quiz, and an oral feedback session on the quiz’s solutions. The students completed the first two tasks outside class but the third task in class. Data from a student survey and course grades were used to evaluate the performance of the flipped lecture compared ...


(Re)Introducing A Closed Book Exam In Law, Cathy S. Sherry, Leon Terrill, Julian Laurens Nov 2018

(Re)Introducing A Closed Book Exam In Law, Cathy S. Sherry, Leon Terrill, Julian Laurens

Legal Education Review

In the past half century there has been a move towards open book examinations in many tertiary institutions. However, the body of research on open book and more traditional closed book exams is diverse and even contradictory in its findings. Law-specific research is almost non-existent. This article discusses the findings of an empirical research project on the introduction of a closed book exam in the compulsory subject Land Law, in an institution that has only used open book exams. The closed book exam and subsequent research were motivated by concerns about the way in which contemporary students do open book ...

Law By Non-Lawyers: The Limit To Limited License Legal Technicians Increasing Access To Justice, Rebecca M. Donaldson Oct 2018

Law By Non-Lawyers: The Limit To Limited License Legal Technicians Increasing Access To Justice, Rebecca M. Donaldson

Seattle University Law Review

For the first time in the American legal profession, non-lawyers can openly, independently, ethically, and legally engage in activities recognized by bar associations as the practice of law. In 2012, the Washington Supreme Court passed Admission and Practice Rule 28 (APR 28), establishing the profession’s first paraprofessional licensing scheme that allows non-lawyers to give legal advice. The process authorizes qualified non-lawyers to provide legal advice without the supervision of a lawyer. Washington’s Supreme Court intends for Limited License Legal Technicians, or “LLLTs” as they are known, to increase access to justice by responding to the unmet civil legal ...
