Festschrift For Michelle Simon, Harriet R. Feldman 2015 Pace University

Festschrift For Michelle Simon, Harriet R. Feldman

Pace Law Review

While Interim Provost, one of the outstanding ideas Michelle came to me with was to establish the Pace Community Law Practice. The practice would have a dual mission, to employ and continue to build the skills of a select group of graduates and to provide quality, affordable legal services to individuals in need. In view of the employment situation overall and specifically as it affected those new to the profession of law, I thought this was a great idea. I quickly gave my endorsement to move forward. This has become a respectable operation and one that has great merit for ...


Festschrift For Dean Simon, Leslie Garfield, Audrey Rogers 2015 Pace University School of Law

Festschrift For Dean Simon, Leslie Garfield, Audrey Rogers

Pace Law Review

We write together about our dear friend Michelle Simon because of her enormous contribution to our professional and personal lives. Working with someone who becomes more than a colleague, but a friend as well, is a special gift. Michelle not only paved our path, she became a trail blazer in legal education. The professional trajectory of Michelle Simon speaks volumes to her talent, tenacity, and consensus building skills.


A Triumphant Day In Pace Law School’S History: Justice Sonia Sotomayor’S November 12, 2012 Visit To Our Campus, Emily Gold Waldman 2015 Pace University School of Law

A Triumphant Day In Pace Law School’S History: Justice Sonia Sotomayor’S November 12, 2012 Visit To Our Campus, Emily Gold Waldman

Pace Law Review

“Read through and then we can discuss. Don’t forward to anyone,” stated a March 2012 e-mail from Dean Emeritus Michelle Simon to me. The e-mail’s subject line was unremarkable – “FW: Your Pace Visit” – but its actual subject was anything but: Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor had officially agreed to visit Pace Law School. It was time for intensive planning to begin. The fruition of that planning – Justice Sotomayor’s full-day visit to our campus on November 12, 2012, the first-ever visit of a Supreme Court Justice to Pace Law School – was a wonderful highlight of Michelle’s ...


A Dean For All Seasons, Steven H. Goldberg 2015 Pace University School of Law

A Dean For All Seasons, Steven H. Goldberg

Pace Law Review

The average tenure of a law school dean in the United States is three years, in large part because the task is both eclectic and difficult. Michelle Simon, the longest tenured Dean at our law school, was able to surpass that average because she was a dean for all seasons: Leadership and care of faculty; attention to student concerns; financial acumen; curricular relevance; keeping the day-to-day operation of a multi-faceted institution on track; maintaining a close but arms-length relationship with the university; and managing external relations on all fronts.

Festschrift For Dean Simon, Jay C. Carlisle

Pace Law Review

Others in the Festschrift will list Dean Simon’s many decanal accomplishments and initiatives, and I join them in their praise. I understand and accept the principle that law school faculty should be primarily engaged in teaching and scholarship, but I will always remember Dean Simon’s commitment to encouraging and supporting faculty involvement in outreach activities that benefit legal reform, the bench and bar, and the citizens of our community and state. I hope her successors will continue her outreach work and wish my old friend and valued colleague Dean Michelle Simon many more years of professional success and ...


Franz Kafka’S “Before The Law”: A Parable, Geoffrey L. Brackett 2015 Marist College

Franz Kafka’S “Before The Law”: A Parable, Geoffrey L. Brackett

Pace Law Review

Despite Francis Bacon’s cautionary note, I have always been a fan of parables, and perhaps the most poignant one to speak for perils of the legal profession is Franz Kafka’s “Vor dem Gesetz” (“Before the Law”), one of the relatively few works to be published in his lifetime. It was seen first in the almanac Vom Jüngsten Tag: Ein Almanach Neuer Dichtung in December 1915 before it was included in his novel Der Prozess (The Trial), which was unpublished in his lifetime. He wrote it at one sitting on December 13, 1914, and in fewer than 650 words ...

Putting The Plug In The Jug: The Malady Of Alcoholism And Substance Addiction In The Legal Profession And A Proposal For Reform, Alexander O. Rovzar 2015 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Putting The Plug In The Jug: The Malady Of Alcoholism And Substance Addiction In The Legal Profession And A Proposal For Reform, Alexander O. Rovzar

University of Massachusetts Law Review

To members of the legal profession, and many of those familiar with it, the high rate of chemical dependency among practitioners is not a secret. Moreover, there is a strong correlation between chemically dependent attorneys and ethical violations across the nation. Over the past thirty years, the legal profession has generally dealt with the alarming amount of professional misconduct rooted in an attorney’s alcoholism or substance addiction by imposing discipline. With the exception of some state-led movements toward rehabilitating the addicted attorney, little has been done on the national level to address chemical dependency among practicing attorneys. Drawing from ...


Toward A Writing-Centered Legal Education, Adam Lamparello 2015 Indiana Tech Law School

Toward A Writing-Centered Legal Education, Adam Lamparello

Adam Lamparello

The future of legal education should bridge the divide between learning and practicing the law. This requires three things. First, tuition should bear some reasonable relationship to graduates’ employment outcomes. Perhaps Harvard is justified in charging $50,000 in tuition, but a fourth-tier law school is not. Second, no school should resist infusing more practical skills training into the curriculum. This does not mean that law schools should focus on adding clinics and externships to the curriculum. The focus should be on developing critical thinkers and persuasive writers that can solve real-world legal problems. Third, law schools should be transparent ...

Friends Of Justice: Does Social Media Impact The Public Perception Of The Justice System?, Nicola A. Boothe-Perry 2015 Florida A&M University College of Law

Friends Of Justice: Does Social Media Impact The Public Perception Of The Justice System?, Nicola A. Boothe-Perry

Pace Law Review

This article will demonstrate how the unregulated use of social media by participants in the justice system (judges, attorneys and jurors specifically) affects the public perception and subsequently the integrity of our justice system. The article will provide a holistic review of social media use by judges, attorneys and jurors, and demonstrate why their use of social media should be harnessed in a manner to ensure compliance with ethical rules and reduce potential negative effects to the social contract between law and society.

Social media is like a culvert. It catches pictures, novelties, personal profiles, gossip, news, unfiltered opinions, and ...
