Incorporating Social Justice Into The Law School Curriculum With A Hybrid Doctrinal/Writing Course, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 221 (2017), Rosa Castello

The John Marshall Law Review

Educating future lawyers is about more than just teaching them substantive law. We are preparing professionals who will go out into our world and shape and affect it in deep and impacting ways. They will make law, enforce law, determine policy, defend people, advocate, and influence lives and businesses. Therefore, any thorough law school education should teach social justice and encourage students to become more engaged in activism. One way to incorporate social justice into the law school curriculum is to offer specific courses focused on social justice. However, administrators may be concerned about demand for such classes or ability ...


Beyond The ‘Resiliency’ And ‘Grit’ Narrative In Legal Education: Race, Class, And Gender Considerations, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 271 (2017), Christian Sundquist Jan 2017

Beyond The ‘Resiliency’ And ‘Grit’ Narrative In Legal Education: Race, Class, And Gender Considerations, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 271 (2017), Christian Sundquist

The John Marshall Law Review

Our country has a long and troubling history of adopting such post-oppression “distancing moves” in order to discount the effect that systemic bias has on inequality, including disparate legal outcomes, by focusing solely on personal responsibility and ...


Who’S Gonna Take The Weight: Using Legal Storytelling To Ignite A New Generation Of Social Engineers, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 231 (2017), Camille Lamar Campbell Jan 2017

Who’S Gonna Take The Weight: Using Legal Storytelling To Ignite A New Generation Of Social Engineers, 50 J. Marshall L. Rev. 231 (2017), Camille Lamar Campbell

The John Marshall Law Review

So I ask the rhetorical question: “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight?” to mobilize law professors—the people responsible for shaping students’ professional identities—to use storytelling techniques to overcome the corrosive effects of stereotypes and implicit biases on controversial clients’ access to legal services and on the lawyer’s professional identity as a social engineer. This article precedes in two parts. Part II explores traditional client selection models and endorses a Houstonian approach to client selection, one that acknowledges the challenges of representing controversial clients within a framework that also acknowledges the social justice consequences of denying representation to ...
