A Theory-Practice Spiral: The Ethics Of Feminism And Clinical Education, Phyllis Goldfarb Jun 1990

A Theory-Practice Spiral: The Ethics Of Feminism And Clinical Education, Phyllis Goldfarb

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Should law school classes cultivate professional skills or should they advance a broad intellectual agenda? This Article examines the relationship between theory and practice from the standpoint of two movements within law’s academy: clinical education and feminist jurisprudence. Although the former is often thought of as a practical movement and the latter a theoretical movement, the Author’s intention is to demonstrate the fundamental methodological similarity of the two movements, and hence, the problematic nature of the theory-practice label. This Article also examines the ethical impulse that sparks clinical education and feminism, suggesting that each movement’s perceptions of ...

Keynote Essay: A Modern Political Tribalism In Natural Resources Management, Zygmunt J.B. Plater Jan 1990

Keynote Essay: A Modern Political Tribalism In Natural Resources Management, Zygmunt J.B. Plater

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

The first law of ecology holds that everything is connected to everything else. This conference addresses the challenges and dilemmas of resource management policy on America’s public lands, but it seems useful both for the purposes of the conference and in broader terms to note how resource management is connected to larger questions of global integrity and human governance. This essay explores a troubling fact of modern political life: As the problems of managing the economy and ecology of this nation become ever more complex, subtly-interrelated, pressured and demanding, our processes of legal and political governance might be expected ...

Joining Hands And Smarts: Teaching Manual Legal Research Through Collaborative Learning Groups, Thomas Michael Mcdonnell Jan 1990

Joining Hands And Smarts: Teaching Manual Legal Research Through Collaborative Learning Groups, Thomas Michael Mcdonnell

Pace Law Faculty Publications

My hypothesis was that a group of law students who research a problem together will learn legal research better than students who work individually. I further hypothesized that if the group research could be undertaken during class time under the direct supervision of the instructor and the teaching assistant, the students would be less intimidated by manual research tools and would be better prepared to work on their own. The following three-step method was employed: (1) the students read about the tool; (2) the instructor discussed the tool in class; and (3) immediately following the discussion, students went to the ...

The Work Of A Cuny Law Student: Simulation And The Experiential Learning Process, Vanessa Merton Jan 1990

The Work Of A Cuny Law Student: Simulation And The Experiential Learning Process, Vanessa Merton

Pace Law Faculty Publications

The work you do as part of a simulation is selectively, but not exactly, the same as what you would do as a lawyer confronted with a comparable problem. By drastically shortening the time frame of the actual process, the simulation allows you to experience the consequences of your choices relatively quickly. In a simulation, you are asked to assume certain roles, and to engage in a variety of tasks, some in-role and some out-of-role (except for the ubiquitous role of "law student").


The Goals And Missions Of Law Schools, Larry Barnett, W. Van Alstyne, Joseph Julin Dec 1989

The Goals And Missions Of Law Schools, Larry Barnett, W. Van Alstyne, Joseph Julin

Larry D Barnett

This provocative study explores the reasons for the public perception of "too many lawyers" and the failure of current legal education to meet present needs for competent legal services at an affordable cost. The principal reason for that failure, the authors argue, lies in the unquestioning acceptance of a Prestige Model created almost a century ago. The success of that model, largely unaltered to this day, has acted as a constraint on curriculum modification geared to the realities of today's society. The explosions of knowledge, population and government regulation in recent decades require recognition of the need for substantial ...
