Using A Civil Procedure Exam Question To Teach Persuasion, Sophie M. Sparrow Dec 2001

Using A Civil Procedure Exam Question To Teach Persuasion, Sophie M. Sparrow

Law Faculty Scholarship

Studies show that learners master new material more effectively when it builds upon what they already know. By revisiting assignments from a previous semester, students can focus their efforts on persuading, rather than learning new doctrine or facts. Turning a predictive discussion into a persuasive argument demonstrates that making an argument requires the same rigorous thinking as predicting a result. One way to do this is to assign students to write an argument based on their fall Civil Procedure exam.

John Wilkes And The Enlightenment, Stephen Carruthers Nov 2001

John Wilkes And The Enlightenment, Stephen Carruthers

Masters

Based on the absence of a substantial political philosophy and a scandalous reputation, modern assessments of John Wilkes have tended to marginalise his role in the development of radical political ideas in England in the 1760s and 1770s. This evaluation is reassessed in the context of an analysis of Wilkes’s collaboration with Charles Churchill on the North Briton and his political writings of the period, in particular his Introduction to the History of England (1768). Furthermore, Wilkes enjoyed extensive and prolonged contact with the leading continental philosophers of the period, and in particular d’Holbach, Diderot, Suard, Helvétius, and ...

Quality Of Life As Defined By Chinese Americans With Disabilities: Implications For Rehabilitation Services, Nan Zhang Hampton, Vickie Chang Aug 2001

Quality Of Life As Defined By Chinese Americans With Disabilities: Implications For Rehabilitation Services, Nan Zhang Hampton, Vickie Chang

Institute for Asian American Studies Publications

We hypothesized that Chinese Americans with disabilities may remain culturally attached to their ancestors' homeland and this cultural attachment may have influences on the concept of Quality of Life (QOL). That is, QOL may be perceived, by Chinese Americans with disabilities, not only as an individual's satisfaction with his or her life, but also the person's fulfillment of his or her responsibilities to his or her family and community. Of course, this hypothesis needs to be examined. Such an investigation may provide rehabilitation counselors with insights into the meaning of QOL from the viewpoint of Chinese Americans with ...

The Multiplicity Of Steady-State Solutions Arising From Microwave Heating. I. Infinite Biot Number And Small Penetration Depth, Mark Nelson, G C. Wake, X D. Chen, E Balakrishnan Jan 2001

The Multiplicity Of Steady-State Solutions Arising From Microwave Heating. I. Infinite Biot Number And Small Penetration Depth, Mark Nelson, G C. Wake, X D. Chen, E Balakrishnan

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Microwave heating of porous solid materials has received considerable attention in recent years because of its widespread use in industry. In this study, the microwave power absorption term is modelled as the product of an exponential temperature function with a function that decays exponentially with distance. The latter describes the penetration of the material by the microwaves. We investigate the phenomena of multiplicity in class A geometries, paying particular attention to how the penetration function effects the behaviour of the system. We explain why the phase-plane techniques which have been used in the case when the penetration term is constant ...

The Hidden Whiteness Of Australian Law: A Case Study, Janet Ransley, Elena Marchetti Jan 2001

The Hidden Whiteness Of Australian Law: A Case Study, Janet Ransley, Elena Marchetti

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Indigenous people face procedural barriers in bringing actions in the Australian legal system, such as the need to frame their claims within Western cultural constructs of individual actions and economic loss, and to transform their stories into the written evidence privileged by courts. But an even greater barrier is the hidden Whiteness of Australian courts, which places Indigenous people as the 'Other' who must either change their claims to conform with 'our' requirements, or be rejected. The case study explored in this article shows how this Whiteness exhibits itself in procedural requirements; in its racialising of Indigenous people, their claims ...
