A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library 2016 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

The purpose of this bibliography is to record in one place the substantial body of scholarship produced by the current faculty at the Catholic University, Columbus School of Law. From its humble beginnings under the tutelage of founding Dean William Callyhan Robinson, through its adolescent period when, like so many other American law schools, it was trying to define its pedagogical niche, to its eventual merger with the Columbus University Law School in 1954, the law school at Catholic University has always retained a scholarly and remarkably productive faculty. The sheer quantity of writing, the breadth of research and the ...


Legal Writing, Therapeutic Jurisprudence, And Professionalism, Shelley Kierstead 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

Legal Writing, Therapeutic Jurisprudence, And Professionalism, Shelley Kierstead

Shelley M. Kierstead

“Professionalism as a personal characteristic is revealed in an attitude and approach to an occupation that is commonly characterized by intelligence, integrity, maturity, and thoughtfulness.”

“Words are the principal tool of lawyers and judges, whether we like it or not.”

The quotes above refer to two quintessential aspects of lawyers’ work. First, as members of a self-regulated profession, we must aspire to a level of professionalism that is characterized by intelligence, maturity, and thoughtfulness. Second, regardless of the tasks we undertake, words are critically important to lawyers. Not only must we be able to conduct comprehensive and coherent legal analysis ...

Introduction - Reading Modern Law: Critical Methodologies And Sovereign Formations, Sundhya Pahuja, Ruth Buchanan, Stewart J. Motha 2016 Melbourne Law School

Introduction - Reading Modern Law: Critical Methodologies And Sovereign Formations, Sundhya Pahuja, Ruth Buchanan, Stewart J. Motha

Ruth Buchanan

Reading Modern Law identifies and elaborates upon key critical methodologies for reading and writing about law in modernity. The force of law rests on determinate and localizable authorizations, as well as an expansive capacity to encompass what has not been pre-figured by an order of rules. The key question this dynamic of law raises is how legal forms might be deployed to confront and disrupt injustice. The urgency of this question must not eclipse the care its complexity demands. This book offers a critical methodology for addressing the many challenges thrown up by that question, whilst testifying to its complexity ...

Historical Headnotes: A Case Study Of A Research Problem, Amelia Landenberger 2016 University of Kentucky College of Law

Historical Headnotes: A Case Study Of A Research Problem, Amelia Landenberger

Amelia Landenberger

This article began as a case study of a legal research problem: how to properly attribute a note that was printed in the margins of a historical case reporter. The article guides the reader through various methods of investigating ambiguities in historical legal texts, including comparing the electronic and print versions of the text, contacting editors at Westlaw and Lexis, conducting research in contemporary newspapers, and researching the author of the document. The article also addresses the importance of early court reporters and court reporting generally. It concludes with a reminder to carefully consider sources of information and the reporters ...

Inmate Legal Information Requests Analysis: Empirical Data To Inform Library Purchases In Correctional Institutions, Kimberli Morris Kelmor 2016 Penn State Law

Inmate Legal Information Requests Analysis: Empirical Data To Inform Library Purchases In Correctional Institutions, Kimberli Morris Kelmor

Kimberli Kelmor

The introduction of legal content to Google Scholar made United States case law and law journal articles accessible to an unprecedented extent. With case law freely available and accurate bibliographic information for articles, could Google Scholar be accurate and complete enough for correctional institutions to forgo purchasing either print publications or fee-based services for these materials? This article empirically assesses whether Google Scholar can reliably answer the questions of inmates in a correctional facility, the Baltimore City Detention Center. As a comparison, the same questions are tested in Westlaw Correctional, a subscription database marketed to correctional institutions.

The Uneasy Case For The Retirement Of Douglas Kahn, Jeffrey H. Kahn 2016 Florida State University

The Uneasy Case For The Retirement Of Douglas Kahn, Jeffrey H. Kahn

Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review

In the fall semester of 1964, a young Douglas Kahn joined the faculty of the University of Michigan Law School. During the spring semester of 2016, he will teach his final course as a full-time faculty member. For the interim fifty two years, he has been a fixture of the Michigan law school community. As a tax professor, former student, and his son, I am pleased and honored to write this introduction for an edition of the Michigan Business & Entrepreneurial Law Review honoring Professor Kahn’s tenure at the University of Michigan.
