Making Effective Use Of Practitioners' Briefs In The Law School Curriculum, Anna Hemingway Dec 2009

Making Effective Use Of Practitioners' Briefs In The Law School Curriculum, Anna Hemingway

Anna P. Hemingway

This article explains how practitioners’ briefs filed in cases law students are currently studying can be used in the classroom to enhance legal education. It provides pedagogical reasons, such as increased student interest and richer appreciation of the legal process, for why these documents should become part of the law school curriculum. It discusses the goals Roy Stuckey proposed for legal education in Best Practices for Lawyers and argues that by uniting theory with practice, the use of practitioners’ briefs would help law schools attain those goals. The article provides different ways that practitioners’ briefs can be used in the ...


The Past, Presence, And Future Of Legal Writing Scholarship: Rhetoric, Voice, And Community, Linda L. Berger Dec 2009

In this Article, we map the contours of a third generation of legal writing scholarship—one that integrates the elements of our professional lives and engages more effectively with our professional communities. The core ...

Ivo Teixeira Gico Jr.

Este artigo trata dos objetivos e utilidades da hermenêutica, seja para tomada de decisões, seja para a compreensão do que é Direito. É por meio da hermenêutica que juristas de toda sorte acreditam extrair sentido e conteúdo das normas jurídicas de modo científico, quando, na verdade, a utilizam para fundamentar sua decisão pré-concebida.

Theory And Practice In Legal Education: An Essay On Clinical Legal Education, Mark Spiegel Jan 1987

Theory And Practice In Legal Education: An Essay On Clinical Legal Education, Mark Spiegel

The author posits that stating the question this way obscures the choices already made, as most types of legal education have elements of both theory and practice. However, how the terms “theory” and “practice” are defined strongly influences how various aspects of legal education are perceived. Therefore, the way we view clinical education depends as much upon the viewpoint ...
