The Lawyering Process: An Example Of Metacognition At Its Best, John M.A. Dipippa, Martha M. Peters Oct 2003

The Lawyering Process: An Example Of Metacognition At Its Best, John M.A. Dipippa, Martha M. Peters

Faculty Scholarship

This article celebrates the 25th anniversary of the publication of Gary Bellow and Bea Moulton's The Lawyering Process by looking at the work from personal and theoretical perspectives. From the personal perspective, the authors discuss how The Lawyering Process influenced them as teachers and scholars. From the theoretical perspective, the authors show how the book modeled various metacognitive processes. Combining the personal with the theoretical, the article shows how The Lawyering Process challenged lawyers to be-come aware of their own thinking by demonstrating how it challenged the authors to do so.


Enron, Watergate And The Regulation Of The Legal Profession, Arnold Rochvarg Oct 2003

Enron, Watergate And The Regulation Of The Legal Profession, Arnold Rochvarg

All Faculty Scholarship

The most famous scandal of the twentieth century was the Watergate scandal, which most notably led to the resignation of Richard Nixon as President of the United States. The significance of Watergate, however, extends further than the resignation of Nixon. Because Watergate involved so many lawyers, it had a great impact on the regulation of the legal profession. Although the twenty-first century has just started, the strongest contender for this century's most famous scandal is the Enron scandal. Although the Enron scandal is identified mostly with misconduct by accountants and corporate officials, it too involved lawyers and has impacted ...

Reflections On Ranganathan’S Five Laws Of Library Science, Richard Leiter Jul 2003

Reflections On Ranganathan’S Five Laws Of Library Science, Richard Leiter

The Marvin and Virginia Schmid Law Library

This article is adapted from a column that I wrote for Legal Assistant Today in 1996. The column’s audience was legal assistants, some of whom, I discovered over my seven years as a columnist for the publication, had responsibility for managing law firm libraries or library resources in addition to their other duties. So from time to time my column drifted into advice about managing libraries. This particular column came about at a time when I was mentoring some younger librarians and discovered to my surprise that they did not know of Ranganathan’s Five Laws of Library Science ...


Busting The Professional Trust: A Comment On William Simon’S Ladd Lecture, W. Bradley Wendel Jul 2003

Busting The Professional Trust: A Comment On William Simon’S Ladd Lecture, W. Bradley Wendel

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

It is truly an honor to be asked to Comment on the work of William Simon, one of the scholars who has done the most to contribute to the reputation of legal ethics as a field with intellectual rigor and depth, as well as one with significant implications for legal theory generally. The power of his critical faculties is unmatched: the platitudes offered by the organized bar in defense of the dominant view of legal ethics lie in tatters after the sustained assault in the first three chapters of The Practice of Justice. In fact, it can be difficult to ...

What Is A Reasonable Attorney Fee? An Empirical Study Of Class Action Settlements, Theodore Eisenberg, Geoffrey P. Miller Jul 2003

What Is A Reasonable Attorney Fee? An Empirical Study Of Class Action Settlements, Theodore Eisenberg, Geoffrey P. Miller

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

Determining an appropriate fee is a difficult task facing trial court judges in class action litigation. But courts rarely rely on empirical research to assess a fee’s reasonableness, due, at least in part, to the relative paucity of available information. Existing empirical studies of attorney fees in class action cases are limited in scope, and generally do not control for important variables. To help fill this gap, we analyzed data from all state and federal class actions with reported fee decisions from 1993 to 2002 in which the fee and class recovery could be determined with reasonable confidence.

We ...

Remembering Harry Pratter (1917-2002), Samuel Born, Joseph Hays, Sarah Riodan, George P. Smith Ii

Harry Pratter (1976-1977 Acting)

At this year's annual Alumni Weekend, colleagues, family, friends, and former students of the inimitable Professor Harry Pratter, who died in March 2002, gathered to share their recollections of his life and career.

Pratter, who was born in the Ukraine and emigrated to the United States as a child, began teaching at the Law School in 1950, after earning his JD from the University of Chicago. He taught many different subjects, including Commercial Law, Negotiable Instruments, Conflicts of Law, Contracts, Torts, and Family Law. But more fundamentally, "he taught life," according to Professor Fred Aman, longtime dean of the ...

A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel Apr 2003

A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel

Lauren Robel (2002 Acting; 2003-2011)

The paths that led the current first-year class, the Class of 2005, to the School of Law are as varied as the paths they - like you - will follow after graduation. Students come to law from other professions, from the study of many other disciplines, from communities across the country and around the world - both communities based on proximihJ and those based on affinity. While the study of law presents new vocabularies, skills, and ideas, that study does not require leaving scholarly, professional, and personal histories at the door. Quite the contrary - what makes law a particularly powerful and humane force ...

Gender Bias: Continuing Challenges And Opportunities, Rebecca Korzec Apr 2003

Gender Bias: Continuing Challenges And Opportunities, Rebecca Korzec

All Faculty Scholarship

In 1873 the U.S. Supreme Court denied Myra Bradwell the right to practice law, holding "the paramount destiny and mission of women are to fulfill the noble and benign office of wife and mother." Now, just slightly more a century later, two women sit on the Supreme Court, and almost half of all law students and law school faculty are women.
