Educating Lawyers For The Global Economy: National Challenges, Carole Silver

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This essay addresses the challenge of educating law students to work in an increasingly global context. For students enrolled in United States law school, insight into the ways in which globalization matters can be drawn from the structural approaches to globalization of US-based law firms. These firms pursue their international practices by integrating lawyers educated and licensed in the firm’s home country (the US) and in the host jurisdictions in which the firm has offices. As a result, the success of the firm in its international practice depends upon the ability of its lawyers to develop strong and effective ...

A Brief Reflection On The Stages Of The Clinical Year: Group Process With Existentialist Roots, Richard J. Wilson 2010 American University Washington College of Law

A Brief Reflection On The Stages Of The Clinical Year: Group Process With Existentialist Roots, Richard J. Wilson

Working Papers

This short article focuses on "units," or stages of group process, part of my shared experience in law teaching and in adult education at St. Mark’s Church, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. The article explores the context of the functional education program of church teaching and its common elements with clinical law teaching. The unit structure from church teaching translates well, I conclude, into the structure of clinical legal education.


Clinical Legal Education In Dutch Legal Culture: Clashes Of Tradition, Tolerance, And Progress In Global Law's Capital, Richard J. Wilson 2010 American University Washington College of Law

Clinical Legal Education In Dutch Legal Culture: Clashes Of Tradition, Tolerance, And Progress In Global Law's Capital, Richard J. Wilson

Working Papers

This paper examines the current context of legal education within Dutch legal culture as a case study focusing on the growing role of clinical legal education in the Netherlands, a progressive country in Western Europe, where traditional legal education has held sway for centuries. The Dutch experience with clinical legal education, though limited, is expanding even as the traditional apprenticeship phase of law training there is undergoing major reform, responsive to the growth of "big law." These reforms are largely attributable to a history of innovation and openness in Dutch legal culture, one dimension of which is the general acknowledgment ...

The Evolution Of J.D. Programs--Is Non-Traditional Becoming More Traditional?: The Keynote Address Of The Southwestern Law Review Conference, David E. Van Zandt 2010 Northwestern University School of Law

The Evolution Of J.D. Programs--Is Non-Traditional Becoming More Traditional?: The Keynote Address Of The Southwestern Law Review Conference, David E. Van Zandt

Faculty Working Papers

Dean David Van Zandt presented the keynote address at the 2009 Southwestern Law Review symposium, "The Evolution of J.D. Programs: Is Non-Traditional Becoming MoreTraditional?" The best legal education must focus on preparing students for 21st-Century legal careers. Law schools need to know about the external market that they serve; they must continuously look for the best methods of teaching the skills this market will demand; and they must focus on outcomes. This means focusing on the competencies a law student has once he or she graduates from law school. Northwestern University School of Law recently completed a major strategic ...

The Accidental Clinician And The Experienced Director: A Conversation On The Value Of Externships, Marjorie A. Silver, Mary Jo Eyster 2010 Touro Law Center

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

Scholarly Works

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 ...

The Journey Toward Excellence In Clinical Legal Education: Developing, Utilizing And Evaluating Methodologies For Determining And Assessing The Effectiveness Of Student Learning Outcomes, Ann Marie Cavazos 2010 Florida A & M University College of Law

The Journey Toward Excellence In Clinical Legal Education: Developing, Utilizing And Evaluating Methodologies For Determining And Assessing The Effectiveness Of Student Learning Outcomes, Ann Marie Cavazos

Journal Publications

This Article proposes pedagogy and methodology for the assessment of student learning outcomes in a Model Clinic Program, intended to accomplish the clinic's goal of preparing students for the practice of law. The Clinic Model emphasizes apprenticeship methodology and assessment pedagogy to ensure that students are learning and developing the legal skill sets that they are expected to learn. In this Article, the Author will depict the Clinic Model in the present tense to illustrate a working, not just a theoretical, model.


The Pedagogy Of "Yes We Can": Teaching Reformative Legal Justice In The Age Of Obama, LeRoy Pernell 2010 Florida A&M University College of Law

The Pedagogy Of "Yes We Can": Teaching Reformative Legal Justice In The Age Of Obama, Leroy Pernell

Journal Publications

These brief comments, delivered as part of the 5th Annual Fred Gray Sr. Civil Rights Symposium, Faulkner University, Thomas Goode Jones School of Law October 21, 2009, do not challenge whether law schools and the profession sufficiently make the case for public service and commitment to societal good; admittedly most existing standards and curricula do. Rather, these comments address the opportunity for legal education to tap, and expand on, a heightened psychological and emotional commitment that might be engendered in law students following the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States.


Enhancing Law Student Learning - The Nurturing Teacher, Nikki Bromberger 2010 University of Western Sydney

Enhancing Law Student Learning - The Nurturing Teacher, Nikki Bromberger

Legal Education Review

This article considers whether the techniques and philosophy of a ‘Nurturing’ teacher can be justified in the law school context. In doing this, the article explores two interrelated issues. The first is the effect of students’ emotions on their ability to learn effectively. The second is the role of the teacher in being aware of and harnessing these emotions in order to create the optimal classroom environment for effective learning. The article argues that the techniques and philosophies of a Nurturing teacher appropriately take account of the emotional aspect of student learning, and are therefore appropriate to law school teaching.
