From Indictment To Information -- Implications Of The Shift, George H. Dession Dec 1932

From Indictment To Information -- Implications Of The Shift, George H. Dession

Faculty Scholarship Series

RECALLING Bentham's assertion that the grand jury had been per-forming no useful function since the beginning of modern prosecu-tion, and remarking the unanimity of modern expert studies to the same effect, the Report on Prosecution by the National Commission on Law Observance and Enforcement concludes:

"that under modern conditions the grand jury is seldom better than a rubber stamp of the prosecuting attorney and has ceased to perform or be needed for the function for which it was established and for which it was retained throughout the centuries; that .... an unnecessary work burden upon the administration of justice .... should ...

Changing Objectives In Legal Education, Roscoe B. Turner Jan 1931

Changing Objectives In Legal Education, Roscoe B. Turner

Faculty Scholarship Series

IT may be said without much question that there is more activity
in the law school world today than there has been at any time
within the last generation or two. Things are in a state of flux
-the culmination of a long period of suggestion and countersuggestion
with little change. The addition of new courses to
the curriculum, the general re-arrangement of existing courses
to admit various types of non-legal materials, new approaches in
legal thought, new ideas concerning teaching methods, the advent
of fact research, and a dawning awareness of the existence
of other social sciences than law ...

The Path Of Law School Development, Leon Green Jan 1926

The Path Of Law School Development, Leon Green

Faculty Scholarship Series

Legal education is taking on new meaning. Law schools are
entering upon a new development. The classical American law
school, represented by three or four well known schools after which
all the better schools are patterned, has clung rather tenaciously to a
twin-function program of training technically fit young lawyers and
promoting scholarly legal research. That it has succeeded in both
undertakings is attested sufficiently by the present leadership at the
bar and by the fact that the law books which have commanded the
greatest respect and influenced the development of the law most profoundly,
with rare exceptions, have been ...

A New Development In Legal Education, Charles M. Hepburn

Articles by Maurer Faculty

The inauguration of the American Institute of Law promises a very important advance into new fields of legal education. The movement was started some months ago by the American Law Book Company. Encouraged be the success of its Cyclopedia of Law and Procedure, which is largely the work of law school teachers, the American Law Book Company has taken the initiative in moving for the establishment of a high grade institution for legal education in its widest relations, to be organized be, and conducted under, the control of law school men and active practitioners interested in the cause of legal ...


Systems In Legal Education, John Wurts Jan 1907

Systems In Legal Education, John Wurts

Faculty Scholarship Series

Until recent years there was but one system of teaching law in the schools. It was the good old system employed in all the professions of introducing the student to text-books of recognized authority and compelling him to commit their contents to memory, under the guidance of an instructor. As shown by Professor Theodore W. Dwight, "it was the method advocated in the Roman law of introducting students to their first knowledge of that remarkable system of jurisprudence." In the earlier days, the work of the instructor was limited to ascertaining that the student had properly memorized the text and ...

Address Of The President Of The Association Of American Law Schools, Henry Wade Rogers

Faculty Scholarship Series

As the Association of American Law Schools was organized in 1900, we are assembled at the sixth annual meeting. The Constitution requires this body to meet annually at the time and place fixed for the annual meeting of the American Bar Association. That Association finds its convenience served by holding its meetings the last of August. A more inconvenient time than this for university teachers could hardly be selected. Organizations composed of those connected with universities are accustomed almost without exception to hold their meetings in December. Then, too, the Bar Association may sometimes find its own advantages promoted by ...

Legal Education In The United States, Henry Wade Rogers

Faculty Scholarship Series

In Mr. O'Brien's interesting Life of Lord Russell, which has recently appeared, the writer speaks of the latter's great interest in the subject of legal education, and of his unsuccessful efforts to reform the system as it exists in England. He quotes from an address which Lord Russell delivered on the subject, and adds: "But nothing came of his address, and the question of 'legal education' still belongs to the future."

Address Of Henry Wade Rogers, Ll.D., Henry Wade Rogers

Faculty Scholarship Series

Gentlemen : The American Bar Association is to be congratulated on the organization of a Section of Legal Education. For the Association, as declared in its constitution, seeks, among other objects, " to advance the science of jurisprudence * * * and uphold the honor of the profession of the law among the members of the American Bar." There is no way by which these ends can so certainly be attained as by a thorough training in the science of jurisprudence of those who are to become members of the profession, and by inculcating in their minds high ideals of the honor and the ethics ...
