On Legal Scholarship: Questions For Judge Harry T. Edwards, Ronald K.L. Collins 2016 University of Washington School of Law

On Legal Scholarship: Questions For Judge Harry T. Edwards, Ronald K.L. Collins

Articles

The life of Judge Harry T. Edwards is one very much steeped in writing. His passion dates back at least to his years at Uniondale High School when he was the editor of the school newspaper. In the legal realm, that passion traces back to 1964 and his days on the Michigan Law Review when he published two student Notes. In the half-century since then, Judge Edwards has authored six books and more than 90 scholarly articles or essays. As a lawyer, educator, administrator, arbitrator, and now jurist, Harry Edwards has put his ideas into print concerning an array of ...

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., And The American Civil War, Catharine P. Wells 2015 Boston College Law School

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., And The American Civil War, Catharine P. Wells

Catharine P. Wells

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. spent three terrible years fighting in the Civil War. By any standard his experience was horrific. He was wounded three times, suffered a nearly fatal bout of dysentery, and endured the deaths of many of his closest friends. Without doubt, it was the most affecting period of his life. Unfortunately, however, the accounts of Holmes’ wartime experience have been notably superficial. Part of the problem has been the fact that, until recently, the chief source of information about these years was Holmes’ own diary and letters. The difficulty with these as a source has been twofold ...

Helping A Lawyer To Understand What It Means To Think Like An Architect, Kevin Emerson Collins 2015 Washington University School of Law

Helping A Lawyer To Understand What It Means To Think Like An Architect, Kevin Emerson Collins

Michigan Technology Law Review

Professor Radin unquestionably influenced legal academia through her ideas, arguments, and scholarship. With that said, my tribute is decidedly personal. To me, Professor Radin was the mentor and role model that I sorely needed when I was figuring out what being a legal academic could mean for me.


Asking The Nearest Hippie, Shubha Ghosh 2015 University of Wisconsin Law School

Asking The Nearest Hippie, Shubha Ghosh

Michigan Technology Law Review

It is an honor to be asked to contribute to this Symposium in honor of Margaret Jane Radin. It is particularly exciting to be able to engage with her scholarship during the summer of 2015 (the time this essay was written) when so many compelling legal issues are coming to a head: same sex marriage and the recognition of dignity as a constitutional value, pragmatic treatment of controversial regulation such as the Affordable Care Act, the death penalty under scrutiny as two justices unequivocally reaffirm its unconstitutionality, voting rights protections roll back, police brutality against African-American citizens as a daily ...

Contracts, Persons And Property: A Tribute To Margaret Jane Radin, Ruth L. Okediji

Michigan Technology Law Review

In 2011, the United States was only just beginning to emerge from what some claimed to be the most significant economic crisis since the Great Depression. The devastation wrought by unregulated subprime mortgages unfolded as a political, legal, financial and social tragedy. Millions of homeowners had purchased homes for amounts they most certainly could not afford, with terms and conditions written on documents they even more certainly had never read. Many of those most severely affected were, as one might expect, racial minorities and underrepresented groups, but plenty of other members of society were also caught in the intricately woven ...

Peggy Radin, Mentor Extraordinaire, R. Anthony Reese

Michigan Technology Law Review

I write to celebrate Peggy Radin’s contributions to the legal academy in her role as a mentor. I know that others will speak to her significant scholarly achievements and important contributions across several fields. I want to pay tribute to the substantial time and energy that Peggy has devoted over the course of her career to mentoring students and young academics. I was extremely fortunate to have had a handful of mentors who helped me become a law professor. (I am also extremely fortunate that some of those mentors became generous senior colleagues who occasionally continue to help me ...


Book Review: To Set The Record Straight By Judge John J. Sirica, Richard L. Aynes 2015 The University of Akron

Book Review: To Set The Record Straight By Judge John J. Sirica, Richard L. Aynes

Akron Law Review

One of the recent and more worthy accounts is that presented by Washington D.C. District Court Judge John Sirica in his To Set the Record Straight. Judge Sirica's sixteen chapters generally cover five topics: 1) a prologue outlining his early experiences and how he attained his position of federal district judge; 2) the first Watergate break-in trial; 3) Judge Sirica's attempt to "break" the silence of the cover-up following the initial proceeding; 4) the controversy over the production of the Presidential tapes; and, 5) the ultimate trials of Nixon administration officials for conspiracy to obstruct justice.

A Tribute To The Honorable Oscar A. Hunsicker, William P. Kannel, William H. Victor, Robert D. Moss, Richard L. Aynes 2015 The University of Akron

A Tribute To The Honorable Oscar A. Hunsicker, William P. Kannel, William H. Victor, Robert D. Moss, Richard L. Aynes

Akron Law Review

Judge Hunsicker was elected to the Juvenile Court bench in 1930. He was a pioneer in the changing of Juvenile Courts and was primarily responsible for much of a lasting philosophy and many lasting procedures of our present day Juvenile Court. He served in that court until 1946 when he was elevated to the Ninth District Court of Appeals. His record as an outstanding Jurist is common knowledge.
