Law Student Motivation, Satisfaction, And Well-Being: The Value Of A Leadership And Professional Development Curriculum, Doug Blaze Jul 2019

Law Student Motivation, Satisfaction, And Well-Being: The Value Of A Leadership And Professional Development Curriculum, Doug Blaze

College of Law Faculty Scholarship

Many law students experience a significant decline in their sense of well-being during law school, particularly during the first year. Research grounded in self-determination theory establishes that the traditional law school curriculum can undermine a student’s psychological need for a sense of competence, autonomy, and relatedness. As a result, student motivation, satisfaction, and well-being all suffer. The research, however, also suggests that an educational environment can be intentionally designed and implemented to provide support for a student’s fundamental psychological needs. Leadership and professional development courses and extra-curricular programming are uniquely positioned to provide that support. If designed and ...

Gendered Lived Experiences In Urban Cape Town: Urban Infrastructure As Equal Opportunity, Social Justice, And Crime Prevention, Becky Jacobs Jan 2017

Gendered Lived Experiences In Urban Cape Town: Urban Infrastructure As Equal Opportunity, Social Justice, And Crime Prevention, Becky Jacobs

College of Law Faculty Scholarship

The body of 19-year-old Sinoxolo Mafevuka was found in a communal toilet in the Cape Town, South African urban township of Khayelitsha. Sinoxolo had been viciously raped, strangled to death, and her body discarded, with her head under the toilet seat and her genitals displayed openly. Tragically, while Sinoxolo’s murder is a particularly brutal example, using a neighborhood toilet in many informal settlements is an incredibly dangerous activity, and there are estimates that 10.5 million South Africans do not have ready access to toilets. “Women, children and men of all ages are frequently robbed, raped, assaulted and murdered ...

A Perplexing Paradox: 'De-Statification' Of 'Investor-State' Dispute Settlement?, Becky Jacobs Jan 2015

A Perplexing Paradox: 'De-Statification' Of 'Investor-State' Dispute Settlement?, Becky Jacobs

College of Law Faculty Scholarship

This Essay considers the perplexingly paradoxical demand that states be virtually removed from investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS). It also briefly considers the various critiques of, and possible reforms or adjustments to, existing ISDS systems, particularly those related to the right of state parties to pursue legitimate public policy objectives, such as the protection of public health, safety, the environment or public morals; social or consumer protection; or the promotion and protection of cultural diversity. Also considered are data and details of the involvement of African states in ISDS. The apparent “diversity deficit” pertaining to the participation of African nationals as ...


Cultivating Purposeful Curiosity In A Clinical Setting: Extrapolating From Case To Social Justice, Becky Jacobs Jan 2015

Cultivating Purposeful Curiosity In A Clinical Setting: Extrapolating From Case To Social Justice, Becky Jacobs

College of Law Faculty Scholarship

Curiosity is an essential component of intellectual development. Not surprisingly, recent data indicate that curious students perform better academically than those who do not exhibit this personality trait. Thus, law professors should harness and nurture this characteristic in our students to improve their learning experiences. This essay considers a three-step pedagogical approach to curiosity as it relates to developing lawyering skills and social justice awareness and to the expansion of access to justice.
