Law School & The Web Of Group Affiliation: Socializing, Socialization, And Social Network Site Use Among Law Students, 27 J. Marshall J. Computer & Info. L. 325 (2010), Eric M. Fink 2010 John Marshall Law School

Law School & The Web Of Group Affiliation: Socializing, Socialization, And Social Network Site Use Among Law Students, 27 J. Marshall J. Computer & Info. L. 325 (2010), Eric M. Fink

The John Marshall Journal of Information Technology & Privacy Law

Online social network sites (“SNS”) have emerged as a significant socio-technical phenomenon in the past several years. Scholars from various disciplines have examined these sites to develop a better understanding of their social significance and implications from a variety of perspectives. Within the burgeoning field of SNS studies, one strand of work focuses on the place of SNSs in students’ educational experiences and the potential pedagogical applications of SNSs. However, the SNS phenomenon generally, and its educational/pedagogical significance in particular, have received scant attention from legal scholars. This article examines the place of SNSs within the contemporary law school ...


Lawyering And Learning In Problem-Solving Courts, Paul Holland 2010 Seattle University

Lawyering And Learning In Problem-Solving Courts, Paul Holland

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

In this Article, Paul Holland presents a deft and provocative analysis of the role of problem-solving courts in providing an alternative, team-based approach to dispute resolution that both provides therapeutic justice and deeply refocuses legal advocacy. Largely an innovation of the twentieth century, problem-solving courts are not without their critics, especially in the academy and among clinicians, but Holland provides a different perspective that presents a strong case for the role of the academy—in the form of clinicians—to teach law students how to lawyer in a context that values social aspects of criminal activity and rehabilitation. Unlike critics ...


Assisting Indigent Families In Conflict: A Pro Bono Test Drive For A Family Alternative Dispute Resolution (Adr) Clinic, Kimberly C. Emery 2010 University of Virginia

Assisting Indigent Families In Conflict: A Pro Bono Test Drive For A Family Alternative Dispute Resolution (Adr) Clinic, Kimberly C. Emery

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

In this Essay, Emery provides a case study of the formation of a robust, interdisciplinary mediation and collaborative law clinic for families who cannot afford to purchase dispute resolution. The clinic evolved out of a pro bono project for students into an academic clinic that serves to both provide access to justice and teach students important lessons regarding justice and client autonomy. This program provides a great deal of context, preparation, and training for the students, modeling high levels of professionalism and knowledge about the social justice issues surrounding poverty, domestic violence, and access to justice. The coupling of meditation ...


Lawyering At The Intersection Of Mediation And Community Economic Development: Interweaving Inclusive Legal Problem Solving Skills In The Training Of Effective Lawyers, Beryl Blaustone, Carmen Huertas-Noble 2010 CUNY School of Law

Lawyering At The Intersection Of Mediation And Community Economic Development: Interweaving Inclusive Legal Problem Solving Skills In The Training Of Effective Lawyers, Beryl Blaustone, Carmen Huertas-Noble

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

In this Essay, Beryl Blaustone and Carmen Huertas-Noble insightfully explore the intersections between community economic development (CED) legal practice and mediation. They suggest that CED lawyers and mediators frequently engage in parallel roles and employ similar skill sets to foster creative problem solving, empower clients and client communities, and advance the interests of all the parties. In their view, both CED lawyers and mediators should engage in what the authors call "inclusive problem-solving," an overlapping skill set that includes metacognitive self-awareness; robust information gathering and focusing with clients; and reframing positions, framing issues,and generating options that maximize the group ...


Why No Clinic Is An Island: The Merits And Challenges Of Integrating Clinical Insights Across The Law Curriculum, Jeff Giddings 2010 Griffith Law School

Why No Clinic Is An Island: The Merits And Challenges Of Integrating Clinical Insights Across The Law Curriculum, Jeff Giddings

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

In this Essay, Giddings presents a case study of the attempts to integrate clinical legal education throughout the curriculum in Australia. This study is both comprehensive and instructive. It illustrates familiar challenges to teaching a broad range of professionalism and lessons regarding justice while bringing real life problems and clients into the academy. It is also instructive regarding successful and unsustainable strategies. One of the main contributions of this Article is its objectivity. Giddings notes that much of the clinical pedagogical scholarship is about the authors’ own programs and lacks a certain sense of distance and skepticism. He thus provides ...

The Potential Contribution Of Adr To An Integrated Curriculum: Preparing Law Students For Real World Lawyering, John M. Lande, Jean R. Sternlight 2010 University of Missouri School of Law

The Potential Contribution Of Adr To An Integrated Curriculum: Preparing Law Students For Real World Lawyering, John M. Lande, Jean R. Sternlight

Faculty Publications

This Article briefly reviews the long history of critiques of legal education that highlight the failure to adequately prepare students for what they will and should do as attorneys. It takes a sober look at the hurdles reformers face when trying to make significant curricular changes and proposes a modest menu of reforms that interested faculty and law schools can largely achieve without investing substantial additional resources.This Article emphasizes the special contributions that alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can provide to legal education more generally. ADR instruction is an important corrective to a curriculum that routinely conveys the erroneous implication ...

Lrw Program Design: A Manifesto For The Future, Eric Easton

All Faculty Scholarship

All of us have, at one time or another, had occasion to consider, or reconsider, our program model. The trigger may have been a new dean; the prospect of a sabbatical inspection; a budget crisis or financial windfall; a faculty champion or saboteur; some-thing we learned at a Legal Writing Institute (LWI) or Association of Legal Writing Directors conference; or merely the cycle of bureaucratic reorganization. Those reconsiderations have led to a great diversity of Legal Research and Writing (LRW) program models: two-, three-, four-, and all-semester programs; adjunct-, contract-, and tenure-track staffing; and directors, co-directors, and no directors. Reconsiderations ...

Goals And Objectives Of Law Schools In Their Primary Role Of Educating Students: South Africa-The University Of Cape Town School Of Law Experience, Chuma Himonga 2010 Penn State Law

Goals And Objectives Of Law Schools In Their Primary Role Of Educating Students: South Africa-The University Of Cape Town School Of Law Experience, Chuma Himonga

Penn State International Law Review

This paper examines the goals of law schools in their primary role of educating students, and the implications of the changing conditions in the legal and business world for these goals. Hereafter, unless otherwise indicated, "school(s)" will be used instead of "faculty(ies)". I would argue that there is no uniformity among law schools with regard to the purposes for which they educate students. The definition of a school's goals and objectives is influenced by factors peculiar to its own circumstances. Furthermore, the goals of a law school are potentially dynamic. They may change from time to time ...
