On Not Throwing Out The Baby: Planning The Future Of Legal Information, Robert C. Berring Mar 1995

On Not Throwing Out The Baby: Planning The Future Of Legal Information, Robert C. Berring

Faculty Scholarship

Legal information is undergoing a radical transformation. New information systems and formats appear regularly, and multinational conglomerates are becoming key players in the marketplace. In the midst of these developments, individuals and interest groups advocate fundamental changes to the way legal information is currently distributed and cited. One proposal, predicated on the notion that the law is a public good, is that the government should compile and distribute legal information to the public at low cost. According to this rationale, the government should replace private publishers as the primary distributor of legal information. Other commentators suggest modifying the citation system ...


Ballad Of A Thin Man: Sociolegal Studies In A Time Of Postmodern Crisis, Jonathan Simon Jan 1995

Ballad Of A Thin Man: Sociolegal Studies In A Time Of Postmodern Crisis, Jonathan Simon

Faculty Scholarship

This article comments on a speech by Boaventura de Sousa Santos which was addressed to the Law and Society Association during its Annual Meeting on June 3, 1995 in Toronto, Canada, about the metaphors of a new conception of law. According to Santos, what is taking place, as of 1995, is simultaneously a crisis of subjectivity and government. The project of emancipation, Santos suggests, has collapsed into regulation.

In the frontier, the baroque, and the South, Santos finds emancipatory possibilities. He ...

Is The Radical Critique Of Merit Anti-Semitic, Daniel A. Farber, Suzanna Sherry Jan 1995

Is The Radical Critique Of Merit Anti-Semitic, Daniel A. Farber, Suzanna Sherry

Faculty Scholarship

Conventional concepts of merit are under attack by some Critical Legal Scholars, Critical Race Theorists, and radical feminists. These critics contend that "merit" is only a social construct designed to maintain the power of dominant groups. This Article challenges the reductionist view that merit has no meaning except as a tool for those in power to perpetuate the existing social order. The authors observe that certain traditionally oppressed groups, most notably Jews and Asian Americans, are disproportionately represented in some desirable economic and educational positions. They have in that sense "succeeded" beyond the supposedly dominant majority. The economic and educational ...
