The Incredible Shrinking Law School, Phillip J. Closius

All Faculty Scholarship

The University of Toledo College of Law faculty and administration performed a task that may be unprecedented in modern American legal education. During a series of luncheon meetings we focused on the topic of enrollment--what size student body should we have given the realities of our market and the pedagogical goals we wish to achieve. We analyzed this issue without either an extensive reliance on our revenue stream or the risk of losing resources if we admitted fewer students. Since we administer both a full- and part-time (mainly evening) program, we also discussed our obligation to serve our metropolitan community ...

The "Darden Dilemma": Should African Americans Prosecute Crimes?, Kenneth B. Nunn Apr 2000

The "Darden Dilemma": Should African Americans Prosecute Crimes?, Kenneth B. Nunn

UF Law Faculty Publications

Christopher Darden (prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson trial) has come to epitomize the burdens that African American prosecutors face as they perform their professional tasks. Moreover, the "Darden Dilemma" has become a generic term for the anguish that these prosecutors endure as they negotiate between competing allegiances to the African American community and the State. Much has been written about the sense of isolation that African American prosecutors feel when confronting the conflict between their roles as prosecutors and their obligations to the African American community. This article argues that African Americans should not prosecute crimes in the current ...

Representing The Poor And Homeless: A Community-Based Approach, Robert A. Solomon Jan 2000

Representing The Poor And Homeless: A Community-Based Approach, Robert A. Solomon

Faculty Scholarship Series

Several years ago, at a conference on representing the homeless, advocates
were discussing developing suitable housing for single homeless people.
Several people argued against single room occupancy (SRO) units without
bathrooms and cooking facilities. The question was posed as one of human
dignity; our clients should not be subjected to the lowest possible form of
housing. I was fully persuaded by the argument, but for one problem. In New
Haven, Connecticut, in seeking to redevelop Connecticut's largest SRO, we
had interviewed 150 of the 218 occupants. Our clients, a large majority, told
us that they did not want bathrooms ...
