Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave 2017 Golden Gate University School of Law

Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave

Golden Gate University Law Review

An over 115-year San Francisco institution devoted to opening legal education and the profession to people of diverse backgrounds and experiences, Golden Gate University School of Law (GGU Law) has been a cornerstone of the Bay Area legal community. GGU Law’s mission, graduates, and academic leaders have played an integral role to the fabric of the San Francisco Bay Area legal community and that has shaped a progressive use of the law that seeks to protect the rights of those who otherwise lack a strong political or legal voice. These contributions continue to reverberate throughout California and beyond. This ...

The Role Of Religiously Affiliated Law Schools In The Renewal Of American Democracy, Bruce Ledewitz 2017 University of Massachusetts School of Law

The Role Of Religiously Affiliated Law Schools In The Renewal Of American Democracy, Bruce Ledewitz

University of Massachusetts Law Review

American Democracy has broken down. This crisis was on dramatic display in the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Americans are resentful, distrustful and pessimistic. We find it easy to blame “the other side” for the deadlock, mendacity and irresponsibility in American public life. By virtue of their public role, American law schools have an obligation to address the breakdown in order to understand and try to ameliorate it. That task is currently unfulfilled by law schools individually and collectively. They are distracted by marketing and pedagogy. Religious law schools, which retain the traits of normative discourse, mission, Truth and tragic limit to ...

Finding The Theory And Method For The Pedagogy Of Teaching Legal Research: A Response To Callister's "Time To Blossom", Paul Jerome McLaughlin Jr. 2017 Florida A&M University College of Law

Finding The Theory And Method For The Pedagogy Of Teaching Legal Research: A Response To Callister's "Time To Blossom", Paul Jerome Mclaughlin Jr.

Library Faculty Publications

In his article “Time to Blossom,” Callister invites legal research experts to begin a discussion as to what theory and methodology would be most effective for teaching legal research. This article suggests that utilizing a tailored form of systems theory in conjunction with active learning methods would allow legal educators not only to teach students in an effective and understandable manner but also to adapt their teaching methods to correspond to changes in the legal research field.


Examining The Role Of Law Of War Training In International Criminal Accountability, Laurie R. Blank 2017 International Humanitarian Law Clinic, Emory University School of Law

Examining The Role Of Law Of War Training In International Criminal Accountability, Laurie R. Blank

Utah Law Review

Training and dissemination of the fundamental rules and principles of law of armed conflict (LOAC) is the first step in any process to ensure lawful military operations. A soldier, a military unit, an entire military must know the rules and parameters for appropriate, lawful and effective action during armed conflict. In the same manner, accountability for violations of LOAC — whether individual criminal accountability or state responsibility — is an equally essential tool for enforcing the law. Exploring the intersection between these two endpoints of the spectrum of LOAC implementation highlights how training and accountability can actually work together to maximize each ...

A Novel Tool For Teaching Property: Starting With The Questions, Tim Iglesias 2017 University of San Francisco, School of Law

A Novel Tool For Teaching Property: Starting With The Questions, Tim Iglesias

Tim Iglesias

For most Property Law professors teaching Property Law is both a joy and a challenge. We are convinced of the importance of the subject for law practice and society at large, but we face numerous challenges in the classroom. Our pedagogical objectives vary, but most of us want to teach some doctrine, some policy and some theory. Engaging fruitfully in policy and theoretical debates requires some grasp of doctrine, but many of the doctrines are complex and not intuitive. This essay offers Property Law professors a new tool that will help them teach doctrine more efficiently so that they can ...

The Future Of Legal Education: Three Visions And A Prediction, Harry W. Arthurs 2017 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

The Future Of Legal Education: Three Visions And A Prediction, Harry W. Arthurs

Harry Arthurs

In this article, the author examines three visions of the future of law schools. The first vision is that they should focus on producing "practice ready lawyers" to meet the immediate needs of today's legal profession. The second is that law schools should focus on training "tomorrow's lawyers, "graduates who are able to adapt to a rapidly-changing world. The third insists that law schools are knowledge communities whose many functions include, but are not limited to, providing students with a large and liberal understanding of law that will prepare them for a variety of legal and non-legal careers ...

Counting Outsiders: A Critical Exploration Of Outsider Course Enrollment In Canadian Legal Education, Natasha Bakht, Kim Brooks, Gillian Calder, Jennifer Koshan, Sonia Lawrence, Carissima Mathen, Debra Parkes 2017 Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia

Counting Outsiders: A Critical Exploration Of Outsider Course Enrollment In Canadian Legal Education, Natasha Bakht, Kim Brooks, Gillian Calder, Jennifer Koshan, Sonia Lawrence, Carissima Mathen, Debra Parkes

Sonia Lawrence

In response to anecdotal concerns that student enrollment in "outsider" courses, and in particular feminist courses, is on the decline in Canadian law schools, the authors explore patterns of course enrollment at seven Canadian law schools. Articulating a definition of "outsider" that describes those who are members of groups historically lacking power in society, or traditionally outside the realms of fashioning, teaching, and adjudicating the law, the authors document the results of quantitative and qualitative surveys conducted at their respective schools to argue that outsider pedagogy remains a critical component of legal education. The article situates the numerical survey results ...
