Introduction To American Association Of Law Schools Symposium: Bringing Values And Perspectives Back Into The Law School Classroom: Practical Ideas For Teachers, Catharine P. Wells Jan 1995

Introduction To American Association Of Law Schools Symposium: Bringing Values And Perspectives Back Into The Law School Classroom: Practical Ideas For Teachers, Catharine P. Wells

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

From the introduction:

The following papers were given in 1994 at a panel sponsored by the Teaching Methods Section at the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS). The papers are loosely organized around two particular claims. The first claim is that law school has a substantial socializing effect on the students who attend. The second claim is that it is desirable for law school teachers to adopt practical strategies for countering this effect and for challenging prevailing law school values. Both of these claims are controversial. For example, there are some who suggest that law school ...


Pragmatism, Feminism, And The Problem Of Bad Coherence, Catharine P. Wells Jan 1995

Pragmatism, Feminism, And The Problem Of Bad Coherence, Catharine P. Wells

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

In this Article, Professor Wells reviews Professor Margaret Jane Radin’s book, Reinterpreting Property. Professor Wells considers Radin’s work a rich repository of original insight, lucid analysis, and sharp debate and particularly appreciates the substantive introduction to the book, which analyses Radin’s ten-year project on property law in terms of the insights and methodological commitments of philosophical pragmatism. Professor Wells explores the contribution of Radin’s pragmatism to ongoing questions about the role of law in achieving social transformation and organizes her comments around the nature of Radin’s pragmatism, its connection to her feminism and what Radin ...


Facing A Time Of Counter-Revolution: The Kepone Incident And A Review Of First Principles, Zygmunt J.B. Plater Jan 1995

Facing A Time Of Counter-Revolution: The Kepone Incident And A Review Of First Principles, Zygmunt J.B. Plater

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The Kepone contamination episode of 1966-75 was a milestone that focused an entire nation’s attention on environmental hazards and our need to do better in recognizing and avoiding them. We have learned a great deal from that unfortunate story. The evolution of American environmental law since the Kepone debacle has repeatedly used the incident as a touchstone in identifying environmental pollution’s causes, effects, and potential solutions. This essay offers four propositions, about two things that have changed, and two things that have not, in the years since Kepone, taking account of where we are, and seeking some points ...

An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers Jan 1995

An Essay On Horseless Carriages And Paperless Negotiable Instruments: Some Lessons From The Article 8 Revision, James S. Rogers

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

As practices change, so too must the language and concepts that define and describe them. That is the lesson to be drawn from the past few decades’ work on the commercial law of investment securities. Article 8 is the first article of the Uniform Commercial Code to reach a third generation. There is the original version, the 1978 version, and now the 1994 version. The original version was based on the traditional system in which buyers and sellers effected transfer of securities by physical delivery of certificates. The 1978 version added new provisions dealing with “uncertificated securities.” Then the 1994 ...


Redefining The Transracial Adoption Controversy, Ruth-Arlene W. Howe Jan 1995

Redefining The Transracial Adoption Controversy, Ruth-Arlene W. Howe

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Transracial adoption is a highly sensitive topic, evoking intense debate between those who consider transracial placements positive for children and society, and those who consider them injurious to Black children and the Black community. The author explores this debate while asserting that the key to successful living as a minority person in a discriminating, denigrating society is to have positive affiliations with others like oneself. Thus, to promote and protect a child’s “best interests,” race is an important factor to be considered when evaluating the appropriateness of prospective adoptive parents. The Essay considers whose interests would actually be served ...
