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 2018 University of Maine School of Law

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 ...

According To The Dean: Public Service And Public Service Loan Forgiveness: A Commitment To Our State And Our Nation, Austen Parrish 2018 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

According To The Dean: Public Service And Public Service Loan Forgiveness: A Commitment To Our State And Our Nation, Austen Parrish

Austen Parrish (2014-)

A student loan bill proposed by Congress is troublesome for those who worry about encouraging our best and brightest to commit to state and national service. Among other provisions, the bill – known as the PROSPER Act – would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program. The repeal apparently will do little for the federal budget, but the predictions are it will adversely affect government, the military and public-interest organizations that have relied on the program for attracting and retaining talent.

Hidden among the partisan rhetoric are issues of real importance to the state – and compelling stories about good people doing ...

The Public Defender's Pin: Untangling Free Speech Regulation In The Courtroom, Michael Kagan 2018 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

The Public Defender's Pin: Untangling Free Speech Regulation In The Courtroom, Michael Kagan

Northwestern University Law Review

Recent disputes in Ohio and Nevada about whether lawyers should be allowed to wear “Black Lives Matter” pins in open court expose a fault line in First Amendment law. Lower courts have generally been unsympathetic to lawyers who display political symbols in court. But it would go too far suggest that free speech has no relevance in courtrooms. This Essay argues for a way to strike a balance.

The Future Of Federal Law Clerk Hiring, Aaron L. Nielson 2018 Selected Works

The Future Of Federal Law Clerk Hiring, Aaron L. Nielson

Aaron L. Nielson

The market for federal law clerks has been upended. Beginning in 2003, the Federal Judges Law Clerk Hiring Plan was implemented to regulate clerkship hiring. According to the Plan, a judge could not interview or hire a potential law clerk before the beginning of the applicant’s third year of law school. The Plan, however, never worked well, constantly got worse, and has now officially collapsed. Across the country, clerkship hiring once again regularly occurs during the second year of law school. This Article addresses the rise and inevitable fall of the Plan. In particular, it submits that the Plan ...

Competing Liabilities: Responding To Evidence Of Child Abuse That Surface During The Attorney-Client Relationship, Alison Beyea 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Competing Liabilities: Responding To Evidence Of Child Abuse That Surface During The Attorney-Client Relationship, Alison Beyea

Maine Law Review

Kevin Adams, a practicing attorney in Maine, represents John Brown in a dispute with Brown's landlord. Brown is facing eviction as a result of his inability to pay the rent. Over the course of the representation, Adams has come to believe that Brown is abusing his son. Brown--who is working two jobs but still cannot pay his rent--has told Adams of the incredible pressure he is facing. Brown has admitted that the pressure is getting to him and that he feels bad that he has been “taking it out on the kid.” Brown also told Adams that he had ...

Valedictory, David D. Gregory 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Valedictory, David D. Gregory

Maine Law Review

Since 1998, David was asked by successive graduating classes to speak at their commencement exercises. The valedictory address he delivered on each of those occasions was pure David—brief, seemingly simple, and filled with much wisdom and lots of good cheer. It seemed to many of us at the Law School to be the perfect tribute to David and all he taught us.
