The Rhetoric Of Catharsis And Change: Law School Autobiography As A Nonfiction Law And Literature Subgenre, Carlo A. Pedrioli 2010 Barry University

The Rhetoric Of Catharsis And Change: Law School Autobiography As A Nonfiction Law And Literature Subgenre, Carlo A. Pedrioli

Faculty Scholarship

To date, little scholarship, if any, has addressed the autobiographies of law students, which have appeared in law review articles and books since at least the late 1970s. This shortcoming of law and literature scholarship in the nonfiction genre of autobiography is problematic. In the interest of understanding diverse perspectives in the legal community, legal scholars with autobiographical interests ought to give attention to the autobiographies of different individuals in this community, including the law students who will be the future members of the profession. Also, this shortcoming leaves a gap in the narrative discourse of the law since lawyers ...

Henry T. King, Jr., At Case, And On The Nuremberg Case, John Q. Barrett 2010 St. John's University - New York

Henry T. King, Jr., At Case, And On The Nuremberg Case, John Q. Barrett

Faculty Publications

Prof. Barrett reflects on his “teacher, colleague and friend for the past eight years,” Henry T. King, Jr. Through work at conferences, with the Robert H. Jackson Center and in many private discussions, Henry King became Prof. Barrett’s "Nuremberg colleague" in the academic and historical senses of that phrase. Henry also hoped and assumed that his friends at Case Western would, after his death, do right by his memory and convene a memorial event. Henry directed Prof. Barrett to attend on this occasion to speak about him and Case Western, and about him and Nuremberg.

Michael R. Kain: The Mayor Of Dupont Circle, Drucilla S. Ramey 2010 Golden Gate University School of Law

Michael R. Kain: The Mayor Of Dupont Circle, Drucilla S. Ramey

Publications

In many ways Michael R. Kain represents the quintessential Golden Gate Law success story. By dint of a unique, yet peculiarly Golden Gateian constellation of qualities, he has become at once a leading real estate macher and a champion of iconic neighborhood preservation in a tough company town - Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. These qualities include instinctive business acumen, rock-hard determination, smarts, love of adventure, and perhaps most important, a gift for forming and enriching relationships with people from widely different walks of life. He might also add that a little bit of luck never hurts.

The Filaments Of The Vicarious, Jospeh Vining

Articles

Forty years is the unit of work in focus here. You have or will have units of forty years of your own, a unit of work like this. I hope what you are doing for me is also for you and your work and your encourage-ment about the decades behind you or to come. I can best respond to your generosity with a look back at the course of this effort of mine and its internal and external connections over time, to illustrate and help us keep in mind the way we mutually influence each other in our thought and ...


In Memoriam: David P. Leonard, Richard D. Friedman 2010 University of Michigan Law School

In Memoriam: David P. Leonard, Richard D. Friedman

Articles

In all significant respects but longevity, David Leonard was - and I am confident that he believed himself to be - a lucky man. Saddened as I am that our association was cut so terribly short, I feel lucky that we had it for as long as we did. And I am sure that his family, his students, his colleagues, and those in the wider legal world who were graced not only by his wisdom but also by his essential goodness, feel the same way.


Robinson Everett: The Citizen Lawyer Ideal Lives On, David F. Levi 2010 Duke Law School

Robinson Everett: The Citizen Lawyer Ideal Lives On, David F. Levi

Faculty Scholarship

In this tribute to Professor Robinson O. Everett, Dean David Levi questions the view that the citizen-lawyer or lawyer-statesmen models are in decline. Tracing Professor Everett’s varied career, accomplishments, and commitments to individuals and institutions; Levi contends that Everett combined the lawyer's traditional focus on the individual with an overall dedication to the larger community. Everett was not just a model citizen; he was a lawyer-citizen. Levi contends that the survival of the lawyer-citizen and lawyer-statesmen models is a matter of choice and character. Nothing in the current structure of the legal economy places these models out of ...


What's Love Got To Do With It?: Contemporary Lessons On Lawyerly Advocacy From The Preacher Martin Luther King, Jr., Deborah J. Cantrell 2010 University of Colorado Law School

What's Love Got To Do With It?: Contemporary Lessons On Lawyerly Advocacy From The Preacher Martin Luther King, Jr., Deborah J. Cantrell

Articles

Lawyers have long been inspired by the advocacy work of Martin Luther King, Jr. From his work on the Montgomery bus boycott, to lunch counter sit-ins, to his March on Washington, Dr. King demonstrated skilled advocacy that resulted in important legal advancements. While lawyers give primacy to Dr. King as an advocate, Dr. King gave primacy to his work as a preacher. This article challenges the legal profession to consider the ways in which Dr. King, the preacher, may be as inspirational and instructive as Dr. King, the civil rights icon. Just as Dr. King's religious values were not ...


Can Compassionate Practice Also Be Good Legal Practice?: Answers From The Lives Of Buddhist Lawyers, Deborah J. Cantrell 2010 University of Colorado Law School

Can Compassionate Practice Also Be Good Legal Practice?: Answers From The Lives Of Buddhist Lawyers, Deborah J. Cantrell

Articles

What does it mean to say that one is a "good lawyer" in the United States? The dominant view is that a lawyer is a zealous advocate owing loyalty to, and taking direction from, the client. The lawyer is singularly focused and hyper-rationality is prized. This article challenges that narrative. Using the real lives of a group of lawyers across the United States, this article offers rich and nuanced descriptive data about the possibilities of "good lawyering" through compassion, equanimity, and an expanded notion of honesty. This article contributes importantly to the debate about what it means to be a ...


The Last Indian Raid In Kansas: Context, Colonialism, And Philip P. Frickey's Contributions To American Indian Law, Sarah Krakoff 2010 University of Colorado Law School

The Last Indian Raid In Kansas: Context, Colonialism, And Philip P. Frickey's Contributions To American Indian Law, Sarah Krakoff

Articles

To many, American Indian law is a remote and anomalous area of the law. To others, including Professor Phil Frickey, themes in American Indian law are central to our identity as a nation, and lessons from the field inform broader understandings of the competencies and limitations of the federal judiciary. One of Professor Frickey’s recurring scholarly arguments is that the federal courts are most within their areas of institutional competence when they approach contemporary Indian law questions as structural disputes between sovereigns, rather than as individual conflicts amenable to the application of mainstream public law values. An event described ...

Prosser's Privacy Law: A Mixed Legacy, Neil Richards, Daniel Solove 2009 Washington University in St Louis

Prosser's Privacy Law: A Mixed Legacy, Neil Richards, Daniel Solove

Neil M Richards

This article examines the complex ways in which William Prosser shaped the development of the American law of tort privacy. Although Prosser certainly gave tort privacy an order and legitimacy that it had previously lacked, he also stunted its development in ways that limited its ability to adapt to the problems of the Information Age. His skepticism about privacy, as well as his view that tort privacy lacked conceptual coherence, led him to categorize the law into a set of four narrow categories and strip it of any guiding concept to shape its future development. Prosser’s legacy for tort ...
