Taking The Bar Early: Making Law Students ‘Practice Ready’, Jason Forcier Feb 2013

Taking The Bar Early: Making Law Students ‘Practice Ready’, Jason Forcier

Jason Forcier

The beginning of 2013 brings with it a number of rule changes by the Supreme Court of Arizona. Notable is the change to Rule 34, Application for Admission. The rule change is the result of an initiative from the deans of each of the three law schools: Phoenix School of Law, University of Arizona, and Arizona State University. The experimental change, set to expire at the end of 2015, allows law students to take the February bar exam during their final semester, so long as students meet certain qualifications and are within 120 days of graduation. This change effectively allows ...

Making “Practice Ready” Practice Ready: Arizona’S Attempt To Streamline The Final Process For Admission To The Bar, Jason Forcier

Jason Forcier

Beginning with the first of the year, 2013 brings with it a number of rule changes from the Supreme Court of Arizona. Most notably is the change to Rule 34, Application for Admission. The rule change is the result of an initiative from each of the deans of Arizona’s three law schools: Phoenix School of Law, University of Arizona, and Arizona State University. The new change will provide many beneficial results: it will allow students to start transitioning from the theory of law to the practice of law; lead to a fundamental change in the structure of the current ...

On The Future Of Integration Between Skills And Ethics Teaching: Clinical Legal Education In The Year 2010, James E. Moliterno Jan 2013

On The Future Of Integration Between Skills And Ethics Teaching: Clinical Legal Education In The Year 2010, James E. Moliterno

James E. Moliterno

Twelve years ago Anthony G. Amsterdam looked into the 21st century for a description of clinical legal education. With the decided advantage of being that much closer to the turn of the century, I think I will take a similar stab. This essay is less a contradiction of Amsterdam's predictions than it is a supplement with the advantages of the passage of time. I will adopt his 21st-century perspective and look at clinical legal education from the vantage point of the year 2010.

The Federal Government Lawyer's Duty To Breach Confidentiality, James E. Moliterno Jan 2013

The Federal Government Lawyer's Duty To Breach Confidentiality, James E. Moliterno

James E. Moliterno

The lawyer's duty of confidentiality springs from the lawyer-client relationship and its parameters are determined by the nature of that relationship. The federal government lawyer's client is like no other. The uniqueness of representing the United States calls for a unique approach to the duty of confidentiality. Unlike the private individual client, the government as a client does not speak with a single, unmistakable voice. Unlike the private entity client, the federal government has a paramount interest in the public good, including the public's right to know about government (the entity's conduct), especially its misconduct. The ...

It’S All About The People: Hierarchy, Networks, And Teaching Assistants In A Civil Procedure Classroom Community, Jennifer E. Spreng Dec 2012

It’S All About The People: Hierarchy, Networks, And Teaching Assistants In A Civil Procedure Classroom Community, Jennifer E. Spreng

Jennifer E Spreng

This article provides a blueprint for a “civic community in a law school classroom” that would better prepare many students for what is likely to be their professional future based on natural social hierarchy and network dynamics. It uses experiences from the author's own teaching career to illustrate hierarchy and network dynamics and how to use them to enrich the pedagogical and social experience of a first year course. It also roots those experiences in principles from social psychology, organizational behavior, transformative leadership and all levels of education literature.

Modern law school classrooms fall into two categories: the "polar ...
