Effectiveness Of The Socratic Method: A Comparative Analysis Of The Historical And Modern Invocations Of An Eduational Method, Amanda J. Grondin 2018 University of South Carolina

Effectiveness Of The Socratic Method: A Comparative Analysis Of The Historical And Modern Invocations Of An Eduational Method, Amanda J. Grondin

Senior Theses

This senior thesis evaluates the Socratic method by comparing its original form, used by Socrates with students such as Meno, to its modern invocations in institutions such as law or medical school. In order to gauge the actual efficacy of the Socratic method in teaching logicality, which is the primary goal of Socratic dialogues, a pilot study was run. The results and implications of this study are embedded in the central portion of the thesis. The study found a statistically significant correlation between the amount of Socratic instruction a student had and that student's performance on a syllogistic reasoning ...

The Rise Of Artificial Intelligence In The Legal Field: Where We Are And Where We Are Going, Sergio David Becerra

The Journal of Business, Entrepreneurship & the Law

The twenty-first century has brought significant technological advancement that permeates all aspects of our lives. The legal field, though slow in the adaption of this technology, is beginning to pick up the pace. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is used now to perform legal work once completed solely by legal practitioners. This Comment outlines what AI is and reviews the current use of AI in the legal field. It also identifies AI products and developments that are in place. Finally, it argues that lawyers will always be needed in the practice of law, despite the continued growth of AI.

Twitter And The #So-Calledjudge, Elizabeth Thornburg 2018 Southern Methodist University

Twitter And The #So-Calledjudge, Elizabeth Thornburg

SMU Law Review

Two-hundred-eighty characters may be insufficient to deliver a treatise on the judiciary, but it is more than enough to deliver criticism of the third branch of government. Today, these tweeted critiques sometimes come not from the general public but from the President himself. Attacks such as these come at a challenging time for court systems. We live in a highly politicized, polarized society. This polarization is reflected in attitudes toward the courts, particularly the federal courts. Unfortunately, public doubts about the court system come at a time when public understanding of the structure of government, and especially the court system ...


Keeping Pace With Technology-Driven Profession, Jodi Nafzger 2018 Concordia University School of Law

Keeping Pace With Technology-Driven Profession, Jodi Nafzger

Jodi Nafzger

With the increasing use of E-discovery and paperless judicial systems, members of the legal profession must consider new methods for managing the overwhelming volume of information and be competent with the emerging technologies at the center of modern law practice. It is also increasingly clear that law schools must teach the technology of law practice. The ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct call for law school curriculum which familiarizes aspiring lawyers with important technology tools. With practical skills training in the use of effective technology tools, the next generation of lawyers can bring an enhanced mastery of business and technology ...

Building The Whole Lawyer: Preparing Students For Entry-Level Success, Courtney Brooks, Jeff White, Nicole Killoran, Beth Locker

Externships (X) Conferences

What competencies best assure entry level success for new legal professionals? Survey feedback from more than 24,000 hiring professionals offers solid guidance. The survey was conducted by Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers, an initiative of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System and published in 2016 as Foundations for Practice: The Whole Lawyer and The Character Quotient (FFP). The authors found “characteristics (such as integrity and trustworthiness, conscientiousness, and common sense) as well as professional competencies (such as listening attentively, speaking and writing, and arriving on time), were far more important in brand new lawyers than legal ...


Report Of The Maine Commission On Gender, Justice, And The Courts, Maine Commission on Gender, Justice, and the Courts 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Report Of The Maine Commission On Gender, Justice, And The Courts, Maine Commission On Gender, Justice, And The Courts

Maine Law Review

The Commission on Gender, Justice, and the Courts was established by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court in January 1993, pursuant to a resolution adopted by the Conference of Chief Justices in 1988 urging the creation of task forces to study gender bias and minority concerns within court systems. In recent years, forty-one states, the District of Columbia, and two federal circuits have established task forces on gender bias in the courts as part of a continuing effort to achieve equality for women and men in American society. These jurisdictions recognized that access to a neutral and unbiased court is essential ...

A Matter Of Interpretation: Federal Courts And The Law, Charles R. Priest 2018 University of Maine School of Law

A Matter Of Interpretation: Federal Courts And The Law, Charles R. Priest

Maine Law Review

Justice Scalia's engaging essay, “Common-Law Courts in a Civil-Law System: The Role of United States Federal Courts in Interpreting the Constitution and Laws,” and the four comments it provokes, should provide lawyers, judges, and other lawmakers with an interesting evening. Instead of presenting a theoretical view of the role of the federal courts in interpretation, Justice Scalia sketches out a case for “textualism.” “Textualism” is one of several currently contending methods of interpreting statutes and the United States Constitution, and is currently popular among federal judges who see their role as restricting government's powers to those expressly stated ...


To Be The Change: Finding Higher Ground In The Law, Paula A. Franzese 2018 University of Maine School of Law

To Be The Change: Finding Higher Ground In The Law, Paula A. Franzese

Maine Law Review

The law is the cornerstone of our society, one of the pillars of civilization, the very “witness … of our moral life.” In the words of former Chief Justice Earl Warren, “[t]he greatest issue before the world today is law.” He continued: “But throughout history, and never more than in our own day, the great question has been whether that law was to be compatible with the basic instinct of all human beings for freedom, for opportunity, for dignity and for peace.” At a time when the challenge to realize this essential congruity has never been more pronounced, the soul ...

Then And Now: A Perspective, Caroline D. Glassman

Maine Law Review

I am very pleased to have been asked to speak to you tonight for it gives me, in the first instance, an opportunity to compare the status of women in the law when I entered law school with that in more current times. I do this without fear of contradiction for I can safely vouch for the fact that there is no other person present here tonight who was a woman law student 50 or so years ago.


Keeping Students Awake: Feminist Theory And Legal Education, Martha Minow 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Keeping Students Awake: Feminist Theory And Legal Education, Martha Minow

Maine Law Review

I am not exactly sure why, but when I turned to think about legal education for today's conference, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein came to mind. It was not because of my own nightmares that my chosen profession as law professor involves turning ordinary people into monsters, although that's a thought we can explore perhaps over drinks. It was because of this comment Shelley makes in the book: “If the study to which you apply yourself has a tendency to weaken your affections, and to destroy your taste for those simple pleasures in which no alloy can possibly mix ...
