Diversity In Law Schools: Where Are We Headed In The Twenty-First Century, Jon L. Mills Oct 2001

Diversity In Law Schools: Where Are We Headed In The Twenty-First Century, Jon L. Mills

UF Law Faculty Publications

While we had historically recruited a large number of minority candidates to campus, because of the departures of our minority faculty, we needed to evaluate both our ability to recruit and our ability to retain minority faculty. Discriminatory hiring based on race is forbidden by law. The University of Florida is an equal opportunity employer. As a practical and legal matter, and in contrast to our current student admissions policy, we can consider race in employment decisions only to remedy past discrimination and only if narrowly tailored to serve a compelling state interest. First, it is important to understand the ...


Teaching Torts Without Insurance: A Second-Best Solution, David A. Fischer, Robert H. Jerry Ii Jul 2001

Teaching Torts Without Insurance: A Second-Best Solution, David A. Fischer, Robert H. Jerry Ii

UF Law Faculty Publications

Teachers, scholars and practitioners have long appreciated the symbiotic relationship of torts and insurance. The authors examine how the study of torts is enriched when insurance concepts play a role in students' analysis. The discussion is divided into two parts. Part I offers a "macro" perspective on the connections between tort and insurance, summarizing the principal issues in play when the purposes of tort law are analyzed against the backdrop of first-party and third-party insurance compensation mechanisms. Part II provides a "micro" perspective on tort-insurance connections, taking a sample of discrete tort law principles, representative of those discussed in a ...


Still Not Behaving Like Gentlemen, Ann Bartow Apr 2001

Still Not Behaving Like Gentlemen, Ann Bartow

Ann Bartow

The author reflects upon the genesis of a law school project with Lani Guinier that ultimately resulted in the publication of a law review article entitled Becoming Gentlemen: Women's Experiences at One Ivy League Law School, and later a book, Becoming Gentlemen: Women, Law School, and Institutional Change. I discuss an apparent dearth of positive, substantive changes in legal education over the past eleven years, noting that women apparently continue to receive lower grades and fewer honors related to grades in top law schools. I also consider reactions to Becoming Gentlemen, and observe that to the extent it got ...

Making Lawyers Good People: Possibility Or Pipedream?, Subha Dhanaraj Jan 2001

Making Lawyers Good People: Possibility Or Pipedream?, Subha Dhanaraj

Fordham Urban Law Journal

This Comment first outlines general conceptions of morality and moral development according to the widely accepted model promulgated by Professor Lawrence Kohlberg, and enunciates the importance of moral theory in the context of legal education. Next, it analyzes competing views of moral development and challenges some general concerns about the value of moral education in law schools. It then proposes the incorporation of moral teaching in the law school curriculum to remedy the disjunction between persona convictions and legal analysis stemming from the Langdellian method of legal training. Finally, it discusses the challenges to incorporating moral education into legal training ...

The Past And Future Of Canadian Generalist Law Journals, Bruce Ryder Jan 2001

The Past And Future Of Canadian Generalist Law Journals, Bruce Ryder

Articles & Book Chapters

The author reviews the history and evolution of Canadian university-based generalist journals. The growth in the number of these journals grew steadily from the late 1940s to the early 1970s, and then stopped abruptly. The driving force behind the establishment of these journals were local and pedagogical: they were adjuncts of students' legal education. By the late 1960s and early 1970s, most generalist journals had outgrown their original mission. They became significant venues for the publication of legal scholarship and reformulated their aims and procedures to set high scholarly standards. All of the existing university-based generalist law journals now have ...

Legal Scholarship As A Vocation, David Luban Jan 2001

Legal Scholarship As A Vocation, David Luban

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

Law professors occupy a twin role as scholars and (most of them, at any rate) as lawyers. Deborah Rhode has pointed out, in her contribution to this symposium, that the lawyer role of the professor carries with it some frequently overlooked obligations, specifically the obligation to perform pro bono service. I agree with her, and have ventured similar arguments myself. Here I will address the more purely theoretical side of the legal scholar's vocation. The text I will take for my sermon is the famous speech on the scholar's role that Max Weber delivered to a student audience ...


Torts Teaching: From Basic Training To Legal-Process Theory: Dominick Vetri, "Tort Law And Practice", Joseph A. Page Jan 2001

Torts Teaching: From Basic Training To Legal-Process Theory: Dominick Vetri, "Tort Law And Practice", Joseph A. Page

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

It was in the course of my meanderings through the torts-casebook landscape that I came upon Professor Dominick Vetri's entry in the field. The quality that first attracted me was the way it fashioned a user-friendly introduction to the study of law, to the uniqueness of the common law, and to the centrality of process. The book demonstrated an unusual sensitivity to the bewilderment of beginners and made a special effort to anticipate their needs and concerns. Yet what made Vetri's approach particularly intriguing was that it managed to play not only to nervous neophytes, but also to ...

American Lawyers And International Competence, Charlotte Ku, Christopher J. Borgen

Faculty Publications

Just over ten years ago, Germans tore down a wall that divided their country and the whole of Europe. Stepping through the hole in the Berlin Wall, they took the first steps towards the reunification of West and East Germany and the end of the Cold War. Today another wall is being torn down—that between purely domestic law and international law. Companies are engaged in international trade at ever increasing rates. Environmental degradation has proved to be a global problem that cannot be solved with uncoordinated local measures. Individuals worldwide are pressing their governments for the recognition of a ...

Reading The Law In The Office Of Calvin Fletcher: The Apprenticeship System And The Practice Of Law In Frontier Indiana, A. Christopher Bryant

Faculty Articles and Other Publications

The university law school is a relatively recent innovation, not just in Nevada but throughout much of the United States as well. In this inaugural issue of the Nevada Law Journal, which marks the establishment in 1998 of the Boyd School of Law, the first state-supported and the only existing law school in Nevada, it is fitting that we examine the methods of legal education and entry to the practice of law that preceded the rise of legal education within the university.

Until the latter part of the nineteenth century, the apprenticeship system constituted the dominant mode of preparation for ...
