Finding Lost & Found: Designer’S Notes From The Process Of Creating A Jewish Game For Learning, Owen Gottlieb 2017 Rochester Institute of Technology

Finding Lost & Found: Designer’S Notes From The Process Of Creating A Jewish Game For Learning, Owen Gottlieb

Articles

This article provides context for and examines aspects of the design process of a game for learning. Lost & Found (2017a, 2017b) is a tabletop-to-mobile game series designed to teach medieval religious legal systems, beginning with Moses Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah (1180), a cornerstone work of Jewish legal rabbinic literature. Through design narratives, the article demonstrates the complex design decisions faced by the team as they balance the needs of player engagement with learning goals. In the process the designers confront challenges in developing winstates and in working with complex resource management. The article provides insight into the pathways the team found ...

Building Community, Still Thirsty For Justice: Supporting Community Development Efforts In Baltimore, Renee Hatcher, Jaime Alison Lee 2017 University of Baltimore School of Law

Building Community, Still Thirsty For Justice: Supporting Community Development Efforts In Baltimore, Renee Hatcher, Jaime Alison Lee

Renee Hatcher

Baltimore is a city of many challenges, but it possesses true communitybased strength. The city’s residents and community organizations are its greatest assets. This article highlights some of the community’s work and how the Community Development Clinic at the University of Baltimore School of Law (CDC) supports this work through its experiential learning curriculum. The challenges facing Baltimore’s communities (systemic disinvestment, structural racism, vacant buildings, unemployment, and the criminalization of poverty, to name a few) existed long before the national media coverage and uprising surrounding the death of Freddie Gray, an unarmed Black man who suffered a ...


The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade 2017 University of Sydney

The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade

John Wade

Legal educators have often developed courses with the purported goal of teaching students to “think like lawyers.” Yet little is known about the ways various classes of lawyers think or behave. This paper offers some insights through anecdotal observations of the behaviour of family lawyers in Sydney. It must be conceded, however, that even beginning to demystify lawyerly behaviour does little to resolve current debates about the goals and methods of legal education.

More Of The Same: Elitism And Exclusion At The Aals Annual Meeting, David E. Steinberg 2017 University of Maine School of Law

More Of The Same: Elitism And Exclusion At The Aals Annual Meeting, David E. Steinberg

Maine Law Review

At the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) meetings and in materials published by the Association, probably no one word appears more frequently than “diversity.” For example, the theme of the 2000 AALS Annual Meeting was A Recommitment to Diversity. In a 1986 essay titled Collegial Diversity, AALS President Susan Westerberg Prager wrote: “The different perspectives of our colleagues can illuminate other areas of research to give us new classroom direction.” And, in a 1996 statement on diversity adopted by the AALS Executive Committee, the committee stated that an objective of diversity was “to create an educational community—and ultimately ...


Artificial Intelligence: Application Today And Implications Tomorrow, Sean Semmler, Zeeve Rose 2017 Duke Law

Artificial Intelligence: Application Today And Implications Tomorrow, Sean Semmler, Zeeve Rose

Duke Law & Technology Review

This paper analyzes the applications of artificial intelligence to the legal industry, specifically in the fields of legal research and contract drafting. First, it will look at the implications of artificial intelligence (A.I.) for the current practice of law. Second, it will delve into the future implications of A.I. on law firms and the possible regulatory challenges that come with A.I. The proliferation of A.I. in the legal sphere will give laymen (clients) access to the information and services traditionally provided exclusively by attorneys. With an increase in access to these services will come a change ...


Ethics, Law Firms, And Legal Education, Milton C. Regan Jr. 2017 University of Maine School of Law

Ethics, Law Firms, And Legal Education, Milton C. Regan Jr.

Maine Law Review

A rash of recent corporate scandals has once again put professional ethics in the spotlight. It's hard to pick up the Wall Street Journal each day and not read that authorities have launched a new investigation or that additional indictments are imminent. Stories of financial fraud and outright looting have galvanized the public and shaken the economy. What ethical lessons can we draw from these events? Two explanations seem especially prominent. The first is a story of individuals without an adequate moral compass. Some people's greed and ambition were unchecked by any internal ethical constraints. For such deviants ...

Blended Learning In The Law Classroom: Design, Implementation And Evaluation Of An Intervention In The First Year Curriculum Design, Melissa Castan, Ross Hyams 2017 Monash University

Blended Learning In The Law Classroom: Design, Implementation And Evaluation Of An Intervention In The First Year Curriculum Design, Melissa Castan, Ross Hyams

Legal Education Review

When a university-mandated ‘Better Teaching Better Learning’ agenda targeted at unit enhancement coincided with a whole of curriculum review, law lecturers teaching first year law units at Monash University piloted a ‘semi-flipped’ series of short videos, supported by online and in-class activities, in order to incorporate blended learning design in key foundation units. This paper examines the key issues in the design, and implementation and evaluation of the ‘semi-flipped’ experience, highlighting lessons learnt, in terms of technical support, pedagogical issues and assessment considerations. In particular, the utility in seeking to evaluate students’ learning outcomes, engagement with reading materials and in-class ...


Student Perspectives On Talking About Sexual Assault In Australian Law Classes, Anna Belgiorno-Nettis 2017 Bond University

Student Perspectives On Talking About Sexual Assault In Australian Law Classes, Anna Belgiorno-Nettis

Legal Education Review

Much of the academic literature on how to talk about sexual assault in law classrooms is written by lecturers, however it is often in reaction to student viewpoints. This paper responds to lecturer approaches by representing student perspectives on talking about sexual assault in Australian law classes, and how student experiences might inform teaching methods. I suggest that the student anecdotes that are recounted in the paper highlight two aims in teaching sexual assault law beyond a learning outcome involving knowledge of substantive law. The first is to acknowledge the perspective of students that have experienced sexual assault, and the ...

Active Learning In Law By Flipping The Classroom: An Enquiry Into Effectiveness And Engagement, Kylie Burns, Mary Keyes, Therese Wilson, Joanne Stagg-Taylor, Kate Van Doore 2017 Griffith University

Active Learning In Law By Flipping The Classroom: An Enquiry Into Effectiveness And Engagement, Kylie Burns, Mary Keyes, Therese Wilson, Joanne Stagg-Taylor, Kate Van Doore

Legal Education Review

Extract:

Legal educators are increasingly encouraged, if not directed, to apply technological innovations in course design and delivery. The use of blended learning, in which courses are delivered in a combination of face-to-face settings and online, has become almost ubiquitous. Blended learning is often associated with active learning, in that a combination of face-to-face and online activities are particularly suitable to facilitate students’ active engagement in learning. Recently, there has been a great deal of interest in a particular type of blended learning which is known as ‘flipped’ learning.

The presenting question for the 2012 Symposium was how can engaged scholarship enhance teaching to prepare students for the legal profession and help to solve the critical problems of the day.12 The event employed a format designed to discover new ways of thinking about engaged scholarship. Each participant was asked to draft and submit in advance brief reflections on this question. At the Symposium, each professor attended seven breakout sessions held throughout the day. At each of these sessions, one participant presented to a small group of professors for ten minutes on her reflections, pinpointing issues, challenges, and themes ...


Irlafarc! Surveying The Language Of Legal Writing, Terrill Pollman, Judith M. Stinson 2017 University of Maine School of Law

Irlafarc! Surveying The Language Of Legal Writing, Terrill Pollman, Judith M. Stinson

Maine Law Review

Language, like law, is a living thing. It grows and changes. It both reflects and shapes the communities that use it. The language of the community of legal writing professors demonstrates this process. Legal writing professors, who stand at the heart of an emerging discipline in the legal academy, are creating new terms, or neologisms, as they struggle to articulate principles of legal analysis, organizational paradigms conventional to legal writing, and other legal writing concepts. This new vocabulary can be both beneficial and detrimental. It can be beneficial because it expands the substance of an emerging discipline. It also can ...
