Holmes' Failure, Louise Weinberg Dec 1997

Holmes' Failure, Louise Weinberg

Michigan Law Review

I have just set down the March 1997 Harvard Law Review, with its centennial celebration of Oliver Wendell Holmes' The Path of the Law. The Path of the Law is a grand thing, in my view Holmes' best thing. But just the same, I find myself surprised that on this occasion none of its celebrants raised what has always seemed to me a weakness of the piece, and of Holmes' much earlier book, The Common Law. This is a weakness that is at once a reflection and a forecast of the failure of its author. Writers today do seem to …

Dedication To Professor Ralph W. Johnson, David H. Getches Oct 1997

Dedication To Professor Ralph W. Johnson, David H. Getches

Articles

This Indian law symposium issue of the Washington Law Review was inspired by the work of Professor Ralph W. Johnson, whose teaching and personal commitment to the field have motivated hundreds, if not thousands, of law students. The decision of the Editorial Board to dedicate the symposium to him might have been made by as many as thirty classes that have passed through the University of Washington School of Law. Those students have been introduced to and moved by Professor Johnson's elucidation of a field that is at once intellectually challenging and morally significant. Johnson's alumni have spread over the …


Law And The Wisconsin Idea, Erika Lietzan, Paul D. Carrington Sep 1997

Law And The Wisconsin Idea, Erika Lietzan, Paul D. Carrington

Faculty Publications

We recall a summer of contentment when American law was suffused with optimism, a season ending a long winter of despair and disorder. For the first fifteen years of this century, many (and perhaps most) American lawyers were filled with confidence that America had healed the wounds of civil war and was healing those of class struggle. We could, and we would, overcome all obstacles to peace and prosperity, not only for our people but for all mankind. This, it was widely believed, would be our century. As early as 1879 Daniel Coit Gilman, the premier educator of his time, …

Gandhi: The Spirituality And Politics Of Suffering, Charles R. Disalvo Apr 1997

Gandhi: The Spirituality And Politics Of Suffering, Charles R. Disalvo

Law Faculty Scholarship

This Article examines the 1982 film Gandhi. Although it took factual liberties with Gandhi's life, Professor DiSalvo concludes that it accurately conveyed Gandhi's dedication to self-suffering and philosophy of non-violence. The Article analyzes excerpts from the film which illustrate Gandhi's five fundamental beliefs on the spirituality and politics of suffering. Those beliefs are in suffering as a weapon, as empowerment, as self-interest, as propaganda, and as reconciliation. The film Gandhi also masterfully introduced millions to Gandhi's life, message, and legacy.

The Theory And Practice Of Being Trina: A Remembrance Of Trina Grillo, Catharine P. Wells Jan 1997

The Theory And Practice Of Being Trina: A Remembrance Of Trina Grillo, Catharine P. Wells

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

From the introduction:

The first thing I noticed about Trina was the depth of her empiricism. Her speech was not littered with platitudes, stereotypes, and received opinions. Although well versed in standard forms of academic debate, she was not overly dependent on this part of her intellectual repertoire. She just didn't think that way. She had a manner of speaking that made even complicated thoughts easily comprehensible. She spoke softly and slowly; she never postured or gave reasons "for the sake of argument." Instead, she shared her observations, posed some thoughtful questions, and quietly offered her own insights and analysis. …

Old Fashioned Postmodernism And The Legal Theories Of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Catharine P. Wells Jan 1997

Old Fashioned Postmodernism And The Legal Theories Of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Catharine P. Wells

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

From the introduction:

Whether Holmes was the greatest American jurist is a question for debate. What needs no debate is the fact that Holmes is the most published, the most discussed, the most praised and the most criticized judge in American history. In view of this fact, one might well doubt the need for yet another paper on Holmes. The sheer number of studies, discussions, collections and biographies raises question as to whether we have not already said enough. Is there any point-besides the obvious pleasure of a good symposium-to more discussion of Holmes and his effect on American law? …


The Courtroom As Classroom: Independence, Imagination And Ideology In The Work Of Jack Weinstein, Stephen B. Burbank Jan 1997

The Courtroom As Classroom: Independence, Imagination And Ideology In The Work Of Jack Weinstein, Stephen B. Burbank

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Carey Law

This Article explores influences that have shaped Judge Weinstein's judicial behavior. The author argues that Weinstein's conception of the judicial role has been influenced in significant respects by his career as a law professor. Tracing continuities and discontinuities between the roles of a professor and a trial judge, the author concludes that Judge Weinstein manifests both the desire for intellectual autonomy and the consequent lack of regard for institutional accountability that are characteristic of the former role. The Article then seeks to evaluate the judge-centered approach to judicial independence it imputes to Judge Weinstein. The author contends that the desire …
