Gideon’S Legacy: Taking Pedagogical Inspiration From The Briefs That Made History, Elizabeth Berenguer Megale

Elizabeth Berenguer

The purpose of this article is to provide guidelines for studying a master brief, like the petitioner brief filed in Gideon v. Wainwright, as a demonstration of advanced techniques in legal reasoning and persuasion. Specific lessons are offered on how to use the briefs as an illustration to teach persuasive writing. Section II below gives a brief history and explanation of rhetoric and other persuasive tools. Note the emphasis on the word "brief' in the previous sentence, as this article is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis of rhetoric, storytelling techniques, or any other persuasive or literary tool. Rather ...

Ube-Shopping: An Unintended Consequence Of Portability?, Suzanne Darrow Kleinhaus

Suzanne Darrow Kleinhaus

Preparing for the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) may require more than just learning the law; it also means learning in which jurisdiction you should take it. While there is not much that is new about the UBE’s individual components – the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE), the Multistate Performance Test (MPT) and the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) – what is new is that where you take the UBE may make the difference between passing and failing. This is possible because of the convergence of bar exam test practices of “portability,” “relative grading,” and “scaling” of scores. By adopting the UBE, jurisdictions agree ...

The Accidental Clinician And The Experienced Director: A Conversation On The Value Of Externships, Marjorie A. Silver 2016 Touro Law Center

The Accidental Clinician And The Experienced Director: A Conversation On The Value Of Externships, Marjorie A. Silver

Marjorie A. Silver

In the summer of 2010, Mary Jo Eyster and Marjorie Silver conversed, via email, about the ways in which externship programs add unique value to the student’s education, separate and apart from their cost-effectiveness as compared to the in-house clinic. The result is this paper, a dialogue between a stand-up teacher who chose to teach the externship seminar and a seasoned clinician.

Mary Jo and Marjorie agree that the well-designed, well-executed program should drive the design, teaching and administration of externships and their accompanying seminars. They share the goals that each of them privilege in the programs they have ...

Experience-Based Teaching Methods In Legal Counseling, Robert T. Grismer, Thomas L. Shaffer 2016 Selected Works

Experience-Based Teaching Methods In Legal Counseling, Robert T. Grismer, Thomas L. Shaffer

Thomas L. Shaffer

Lawyers spend more time in their offices, in person-to-person encounters counseling troubled individuals, than in any other single area. The alternative to this is litigation, an expensive, inefficient, disfunctional process. Lawyers are counselors, in the most Sartrean sense of the word; whether they intend to be or not. Legal educators like Harrop Freeman and Andrew S. Watson, and legal psychologists such as Robert S. Redmount, have pointed out the inevitability of legal counseling in practice, and the lack of adequate preparation we give our students for their lives as counselors.
