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.

Legal Knowledge For Our Times: Rethinking Legal Knowledge And Legal Education, Ruth Buchanan, Marilyn MacCrimmon, Wes Pue 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

Legal Knowledge For Our Times: Rethinking Legal Knowledge And Legal Education, Ruth Buchanan, Marilyn Maccrimmon, Wes Pue

Ruth Buchanan

The essays gathered for this symposium reflect a number of overlapping concerns about contemporary legal knowledge and education.

Though they are considerably diverse in focus and subject-matter, ranging from admissions to films to "marketing" of law faculties, each of these articles addresses aspects of legal education, the construction of legal knowledge and the character of what Ian Duncanson calls "the law discipline." Educational practice, knowledge and disciplinarity are thoroughly inter-related. The contributors to this volume are all acutely aware that, as educators and researchers, we both:

participate in the construction of legal knowledge (for the readers of learned journals, for ...

Channeling The River: Using Positive Psychology To Prevent Cultural Helplessness, As Applied To African-American Law Students, Dwayne Allen Thomas 2016 University of Pennsylvania

Channeling The River: Using Positive Psychology To Prevent Cultural Helplessness, As Applied To African-American Law Students, Dwayne Allen Thomas

Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects

Helplessness deficits are characterized by an organism’s failure to escape escapable situations after exposure to aversive stimuli. It has recently been learned that helplessness is the mammalian default protective response, and that it is subdued as mammals learn to control their environment. Human helplessness responses are mediated by our ability to think; explanations for adverse stimuli that tend toward the individual’s inability to control a stimulus can cause a person to exhibit helplessness deficits. This paper proposes a theory of cultural helplessness, positing that information and beliefs spread through cultural transmission can provide individuals with automatic explanations, which ...

The Changing Market For Criminal Law Casebooks, Jens David Ohlin 2016 Cornell Law School

The Changing Market For Criminal Law Casebooks, Jens David Ohlin

Jens David Ohlin

In the following Review, I analyze the leading criminal law casebooks on the market and describe the ways in which they do — and do not — respond to the needs of criminal law teachers. At least part of the issue is the changing nature of law teaching — what actually happens in the classroom has changed in the last three decades. Moreover, there may be less uniformity in classroom practice than in the past; in other words, what works in one law school might not work in another, due in part to the changing profile of law students, as well as the ...

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 ...
