Using “Live” Assignments For Formative Assessment, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck 2022 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

Using “Live” Assignments For Formative Assessment, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

At the Teaching the Teachers Conference a few weeks ago, I gave a demonstration of a formative assessment style we’ve been using at my institution for the past year and a half: a live assignment, AKA the Research Practicum. The presentation was virtual; COVID struck, of course, and I couldn’t get on a plane and fly to Portland. Fortunately, the nature of this assessment lends itself beautifully to a pivot to virtual because it is already entirely virtual. The Research Practicum uses Zoom or some other video conferencing platform and asks students to research while sharing their screen as their …

It’s mid-May which, in the law school world, means finals, grading, graduation and the impending summer. As the spring semester winds to a close, I’ve been finding myself staring at a mostly blank – beautifully, thankfully blank – summer calendar and wondering: how will I fill my time?

Using The “Scholarship As Conversation” Frame To Explain The Importance Of Inclusive Citation, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

It’s been nearly two years since the largest civil rights movement – the protests stemming from the murder of George Floyd by a police officer – swept the United States. That means it has also been nearly two years since law schools across the country released statements and created taskforces and enacted initiatives to inject principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into the school halls.


On The Academic Librarian Pay Disparity, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck 2022 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

On The Academic Librarian Pay Disparity, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

Last month, I posted to this blog the results of my study comparing the salaries of tenure-track law professors and law librarians who teach required, credit-bearing classes. The reaction was overwhelming; clearly, the proof that law librarians were underpaid – something many librarians had assumed for many years – hit a chord within the profession. Librarians across the country contacted me publicly and privately to express their shock (or lack thereof), their frustration, their personal anecdotes about being underpaid and struggling to make ends meet. Eventually, this culminated in an event hosted by the AALL Research Crits Caucus on Monday, …

Academic Law Librarians Are Paid 47% Less Than Their Faculty Counterparts, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

In December Joe Fore, the co-director of the Legal Writing program at the University of Virginia School of Law, posted to Twitter a thread comparing tenure track and legal writing salaries. In comparing four public schools, he discovered that the average starting salary for a tenure track professor was $173,000 while the average salary for all legal writing faculty was $111,000. A few academic law librarians saw the tweet and replied that someone should do the same for law librarians, too.
