The Quandary Of Serving Multiple Masters: An Institutional Exploratory Analysis Of Publishing In Business Law, Robert S. Rubin, John R. Olson, Laura Hartman, James A. Belohlav Dec 2004

The Quandary Of Serving Multiple Masters: An Institutional Exploratory Analysis Of Publishing In Business Law, Robert S. Rubin, John R. Olson, Laura Hartman, James A. Belohlav

ExpressO

Notwithstanding published articles on the nature and quality of research and scholarship in practically every other business discipline, to date there has been little systematic evaluation of relevant journals in the business law discipline. This deficiency is due, in part, to the fact that business law may still be described as a developing discipline. Thus, the focus of this article is on delineating the nature of research and scholarship within the business law discipline. Specifically, the publishing practices of business law faculty from academic institutions that were members of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the ...


Ethics In Externships: Confidentiality, Conflicts, And Competence Issues In The Field And In The Classroom, Alexis Anderson, Arlene Kanter, Cindy R. Slane Oct 2004

Ethics In Externships: Confidentiality, Conflicts, And Competence Issues In The Field And In The Classroom, Alexis Anderson, Arlene Kanter, Cindy R. Slane

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Law school faculty engaged in externship teaching have long recognized that the tripartite nature of externship practice, which joins law students, field supervisors, and faculty supervisors in the common enterprise of providing students with opportunities to observe, participate in, and reflect on the work that lawyers do in various practice settings, gives rise to ethical issues that are in some ways distinct from the ethical issues commonly encountered in in-house clinical settings. This article explores the challenges facing each of the externship players with respect to a number of such issues, all clustering around three central professional obligations lawyers owe ...

The Silent Llc Revolution-- The Social Cost Of Academic Neglect, Howard M. Friedman Sep 2004

The Silent Llc Revolution-- The Social Cost Of Academic Neglect, Howard M. Friedman

ExpressO

The law of Business Associations usually develops slowly. The business forms that were dominant until the end of the 20th century have been in existence for centuries. However, as the new data set examined in detail in this article demonstrates, in the last decade a revolution has taken place. Contrary to conclusions reached in leading articles published as recently as 2000, limited liability companies have now become the business form of choice for small firms in a majority of the states. This article details the ways in which teaching materials and legal scholarship have largely neglected the recent sea change ...

Logic, Language And Legal Science: Are We Lagging Behind?, James S. Mcquade Jun 2004

Logic, Language And Legal Science: Are We Lagging Behind?, James S. Mcquade

ExpressO

The central theme of this article is that modern notions of logic, deriving from computer logics and also from the language and logic movement in philosophy, provide a sound basis for legal science and hence for legal writing, law practice and legal education. Scepticism about legal formalism largely derives from the fact that the term logic is still taken to mean the syllogistic logic of Aristotle. Modern notions of logic, generally referred to as formalism or formal studies, view knowledge in general and science in particular in terms of game theory, applying word, number letter and iconic games to data ...


Law School Enters The Matrix: Teaching Critical Legal Studies, Jerry L. Anderson Jun 2004

Law School Enters The Matrix: Teaching Critical Legal Studies, Jerry L. Anderson

Jerry L. Anderson

Critical legal theory should be more widely taught as a useful way of analyzing the law. Recent critiques of CLS do not diminish its usefulness as a tool for teaching critical thinking. Many professors, however, find it difficult to convey the essential concept of CLS in a way students can grasp. This article suggests that the popular movie "The Matrix" may provide a method of explaining critical theory to students.

In The Beginning Was The Law… An Intellectual Odyssey, Patrick Mcauslan Mar 2004

In The Beginning Was The Law… An Intellectual Odyssey, Patrick Mcauslan

The Practice of Law and Development: Socio-Legal Approaches

Is there such a distinctive phenomenon in practice as "law and development?" Isn’t all law directed towards some kind of development in the sense that new law – judicial decisions, legislation, administrative directives – change the existing law and so is a development from that existing law and in changing the existing law, change, in howsoever slight a degree, the economy and society of which the law is a part. Law and Development did not start in the 1960s when American legal scholars discovered the developing world nor did it end in the 1970s when, starved of funds to pursue their ...


Using Our Brains: What Cognitive Science Teaches About Teaching Law Students To Be Ethical, Professionally Responsible Lawyers, Alan M. Lerner Mar 2004

Using Our Brains: What Cognitive Science Teaches About Teaching Law Students To Be Ethical, Professionally Responsible Lawyers, Alan M. Lerner

ExpressO

Throughout our lives, below the level of our consciousness, each of us develops powerful values, intuitions, expectations, and needs that powerfully affect both our perceptions and our judgments. Placed in situations in which we feel threatened, or which implicate our values, our brains, relying on those implicitly learned, emotionally weighted, memories, can "downshift," to primitive, self-protective problem solving techniques - fight or flight. Because these processes operate below the radar of our consciousness, we react without reflection or the opportunity for interdiction. Thus, it may be that automatic, “emotional” reaction, rather than thoughtful, reasoned analysis leads to our responses to stressful ...

"The Purer Fountains": Bacon And Legal Education, Daniel R. Coquillette Mar 2004

"The Purer Fountains": Bacon And Legal Education, Daniel R. Coquillette

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Today, the classical underpinnings of American legal education are under intense critical review. The dominant pedagogy, the case book and the Socratic method, were established by Christopher Columbus Langdell (1806-1906) at Harvard Law School more than a century ago. Together with Langdell's first year curriculum, which was exclusively focused on Anglo-American common law doctrine, and his emphasis on a competitive, anonymous graded meritocracy, this system still exercises an incredible grip on elite American law schools. But Langdell's 19th Century model has now been challenged by many rivals, including critical legal studies, law and economics empiricism, global curriculums, and ...

A New Image In The Looking Glass: Faculty Mentoring, Invitational Rhetoric, And The Second-Class Status Of Women In U.S. Academia, Carlo A. Pedrioli Jan 2004

A New Image In The Looking Glass: Faculty Mentoring, Invitational Rhetoric, And The Second-Class Status Of Women In U.S. Academia, Carlo A. Pedrioli

Carlo A. Pedrioli

This article maintains that because Title VII alone does not have the ability to further the progress women have made in academic hiring, retention, and promotion, looking to remedies in addition to Title VII will be advantageous in helping to improve the status of women in U.S. academia. The article suggests as an additional remedy the implementation of faculty mentoring opportunities for junior female faculty members. A key way of initiating and furthering such mentoring opportunities is a type of discourse called invitational rhetoric, which is “an invitation to understanding as a means to create...relationship[s] rooted in ...
