Learning Intentionally And The Metacognitive Task, Patti Alleva, Jennifer A. Gundlach 2016 Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University

Learning Intentionally And The Metacognitive Task, Patti Alleva, Jennifer A. Gundlach

Hofstra Law Faculty Scholarship

[T]his article begins by suggesting why civil procedure doctrine is so challenging to teach and learn, noting how the symposium pieces help to tackle those challenges. Then, we join the growing number of law professors who advocate that learning how to learn deserves greater attention in the law school curriculum, given the importance of learning to law students and lawyers alike. In particular, to round out the teaching approaches of our authors, we suggest that law schools should do more to demonstrate respect for the process of learning as an end in itself.13 We especially extol the use ...


Perspectives - Emmy Award-Winning Producer And Director Thomas Kaufman, James Hagy, Colin Pearce 2016 New York Law School

Perspectives - Emmy Award-Winning Producer And Director Thomas Kaufman, James Hagy, Colin Pearce

Rooftops Project

What makes an effective message when asking for donations to a capital project using video and streaming media? Professor James Hagy and Rooftops Team member Colin Pearce asked Emmy Award-winning producer and director Tom Kaufman after screening his remarkable two-minute video for the Playtime Project, the goal of which was to fund construction of a children’s playground for a large homeless shelter in a converted, former general hospital in the District of Columbia.


The Spirit Of Law Librarianship: Legal Education Reform In Iraq, Kimberli Morris Kelmor 2016 Penn State Dickinson School of Law

The Spirit Of Law Librarianship: Legal Education Reform In Iraq, Kimberli Morris Kelmor

Kimberli Kelmor

Morris talks about her changing perspectives on her experiences while working in Iraq with the International Human Rights Law Institute from February 2004 to Jan 1, 2006. The contract was initially proposed as a three-year plan to help Iraqi law schools overcome the effects of more than twenty years of economic, physical, and intellectual isolation. The complete project included a program for clinical legal education, curriculum reform, rule of law, and library and educational technology. Accomplishing this in three geographically dispersed schools was a logical plan, but a very ambitious one. As the security situation and travel restrictions worsened, and ...

Homer Simpson Meets The Rule Against Perpetuities: The Controversial Use Of Pop-Culture In Legal Writing Pedagogy, Louis N. Schulze Jr.

Louis N. Schulze, Jr

Imagine that you have returned to your first year of law school. In your legal writing course, you are required to finish the year with an extensive brief analyzing a legal problem. After months in your doctrinal courses dealing with mind-bending legal issues such as liquidated damages, substantive due process, felony murder, personal jurisdiction, and shifting executory interests, you are ready to sink your teeth into a challenging legal writing assignment. You want to show your stuff and prove that your writing is law review caliber. Your assignment starts as follows: Greenacre is a parcel of land bounded on three ...


The Uneasy Case For The Retirement Of Douglas Kahn, Jeffrey H. Kahn 2016 Florida State University

The Uneasy Case For The Retirement Of Douglas Kahn, Jeffrey H. Kahn

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

In the fall semester of 1964, a young Douglas Kahn joined the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School. During the spring semester of 2016, he will teach his final course as a full-time faculty member. For the interim fifty two years, he has been a fixture of the Michigan law school community. As a tax professor, former student, and his son, I am pleased and honored to write this introduction for an edition of the Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review honoring Professor Kahn’s tenure at the University of Michigan.


Doug Kahn: The Pied Piper Of Tax Law, Barrie Lawson Loeks, Burt P. Rosen 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Doug Kahn: The Pied Piper Of Tax Law, Barrie Lawson Loeks, Burt P. Rosen

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

Doug Kahn’s love of tax law appears to be contagious. His wife was a tax lawyer, his son is now a tax law professor, and even his daughter in law is a tax lawyer. Doug may have caught the “tax disease” from his elder brother, who was also a leading tax lawyer. In politics, we have the Kennedys, the Bushes, and the Clintons; in the world of tax law, we have the Kahn family dynasty. One can only assume that the discussions around the family Thanksgiving table sliced and diced tax regulations and policies right along with the turkey ...


A Note, Robert T. Pelinka Jr. 2016 University of Michigan Law School

A Note, Robert T. Pelinka Jr.

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

I find it quite meaningful that heartwarming reflections about Douglas Kahn come very naturally to me. Perhaps that, in and of itself, says something about this incredible man. For context, my time in physical proximity to Professor Kahn came during my years as a student-athlete at the University of Michigan, where I graduated from the Ross School of Business, and the Law School. I was also a member of The Michigan Wolverines Basketball Team, where I participated in three NCAA Final Fours, and earned an NCAA Championship Title. I mention these things, not to tout my own accomplishments, but rather ...


Doug Kahn - A Personal Appreciation, Patricia D. White 2016 University of Miami School of Law

Doug Kahn - A Personal Appreciation, Patricia D. White

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

Doug Kahn has a booming laugh and an infectious enthusiasm for his subject. I am one of the legions of students who were infected by the tax bug—thanks to Doug. It is appropriate that, on the occasion of his retirement, some of us who were most infected reflect on Doug’s influence in our lives. In my case this is easy. I owe the basic contours of my career to Doug. I graduated from Michigan Law in 1974. Times were different then. I graduated never having had a female instructor. There were no women on the faculty. Only thirteen ...


What We Talk About When We Talk About Tax Complexity, Andrea Monroe 2016 Temple University

What We Talk About When We Talk About Tax Complexity, Andrea Monroe

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

I learned most of what I know about being a lawyer, a teacher, and a scholar from Professor Douglas Kahn. For four months in the spring of 1997, Doug mesmerized and terrified me in the class that I feared would be my academic downfall—Partnership Taxation. In the years that followed, Doug has been a mentor and friend, encouraging and supporting me at every stage of my professional career. And my experience is not unique: Doug has inspired generations of law students in just the same way. There is no adequate way to thank Doug for everything he has given ...


A Grateful Testimonial To Doug Kahn, Terrence G. Perris 2016 University of Michigan Law School

A Grateful Testimonial To Doug Kahn, Terrence G. Perris

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

It is difficult for me to accept the reality that Doug Kahn is about to retire after a triumphant fifty-two year tenure as a professor at the University of Michigan Law School. For much of the nearly forty-seven years of my association with the Law School, first as a student and then as an alumnus, Doug has practically symbolized the Law School for me, as he went from being a revered teacher, to a valued mentor, to a dear friend, to a colleague and co-author, and, dare I say, to virtually a member of the family. But I am only ...


Doug Kahn: Class Master, Dennis E. Ross 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Doug Kahn: Class Master, Dennis E. Ross

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

Doug has always been a bit of a departure from the professorial norm. Teaching for Doug was no accommodation to the job, no activity collateral to his true ambition, but rather an openly genuine attempt to engage his students and pull them into a subject that he obviously loved. His evident joy when in front of a class closed any distance with his students, no small feat considering the subject matter. Tax is forbidding territory for many, and Doug was justifiably known for his refusal to dumb the material down. Thus, much of his class may have been there reluctantly ...


Where Does One Begin To Describe A Professor Who Literally Changed Your Life?, Kelli Turner 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Where Does One Begin To Describe A Professor Who Literally Changed Your Life?, Kelli Turner

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

A bit of background to set the stage, if you’ll indulge me. Growing up in West Bloomfield, Michigan, I was never overly ambitious, nor did I have any lofty academic goals. In particular, I never had any desire to go to law school or, for that matter, to become a lawyer. I come from a family of trial attorneys and it never interested me much. I was a numbers person and didn’t enjoy a lot of deep reading and essay writing (somewhat ironic as I’m writing this for a law journal). But when I started in public ...

Achieving Better Outcomes For Chinese Law Students Studying Overseas, Yulan Xiang 2016 University of Foshan

Achieving Better Outcomes For Chinese Law Students Studying Overseas, Yulan Xiang

Owen Dixon Society eJournal

The internationalization of tertiary education has resulted in an influx of Chinese students studying in Australia. This movement brings invaluable advantages to Chinese law students studying overseas as well as challenges to host universities and their teaching staff. Much of these relate to social, cultural and educational differences, which have not been adequately acknowledged by the current teaching methodologies of host university law schools.

This article discusses the main difficulties experienced by Chinese law students and the main efforts that have been made to help them overcome their difficulties. Although efforts to improve the situation have been made by host ...
