Legal Education In China Today, R. St. J. Macdonald Nov 1980

Legal Education In China Today, R. St. J. Macdonald

Dalhousie Law Journal

Two developmerits in China since the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976 are of particular interest to the legal profession in Canada: the revival of legal education and the reform of the legal system. Legal education in China today has entered its most exciting period since the founding of the People's Republic in 1949. During the academic year 1980-81, China's four institutes of political science and law, and law faculties at eight universities and colleges, enrolled over 2,000 new students in four more law institutes and faculties than in 1965, the year before the Cultural Revolution. The present enrollment …


What Makes A Law School Great?, Willis L. M. Reese Nov 1980

What Makes A Law School Great?, Willis L. M. Reese

Dalhousie Law Journal

Of course I have no idea what makes a law school great. I have never really thought about it. There is no reason why a fellow in my lowly position should think about it. You can't arrive at my age and still be reasonably healthy if you do think about it. So I don't know. Dean Ronald Macdonald said "why don't you say something about what makes a law school great?" My reaction was to shudder. I did think about if for about ten minutes on Saturday and I have come up with the most obvious thoughts, all of which …


What Makes A Law School Great?, John Willis Nov 1980

What Makes A Law School Great?, John Willis

Dalhousie Law Journal

Coming, as I do, third in the line of those who have been asked to comment on the light-hearted wit and wisdom that Willis Reese let loose on this subject in his off-the-cuff remarks to a small group of teachers and students at Dalhousie Law School, I cannot add much to what has already been said. So, trying as hard as I can to avoid the pompous solemnity that almost inevitably goes along with any written pronouncement on topics as serious as those with which he dealt, I shall make three general comments on Willis Reese's main theme and two …


Law Schools And Other Reformatories, Norval Morris Nov 1980

Law Schools And Other Reformatories, Norval Morris

Dalhousie Law Journal

It is, of course, a great and undeserved honor for me to be offering this year's Horace E. Read Memorial Lecture. The slightest acquaintance with Dean Read's career reveals the range and quality of his contributions to the law, to the institutions of society and to legal education. It is a great pleasure to be playing a role in these annual memorial celebrations. His life is a model of service and scholarship to all who wish to live the life of the law at its higher levels and refutes those who see our profession as narrow or intellectually confined. Nevertheless, …


Canadian Law Schools: In Search Of Excellence, Leon E. Trakman Nov 1980

Canadian Law Schools: In Search Of Excellence, Leon E. Trakman

Dalhousie Law Journal

What makes a law school sound? credible? even excellent? Surely many things: leadership potential, good faculty and good students, a solid public image and communication. Greatness comes from knowing our own strengths and weaknesses, our institutional purposes. In short, achievement flows from how we evaluate ourself and how others evaluate us.' A law school must seek to satisfy many goals. Ideally, every legal institution should strive to excel as a facility of learning, as a bastion of intellectual fervor, as an instrument satisfying community needs. Yet each of these goals are themselves variable in kind. Teaching expertise in one legal …


What Makes A Law School Great?, Maxwell Cohen Nov 1980

What Makes A Law School Great?, Maxwell Cohen

Dalhousie Law Journal

It is very humbling to try and match the amusing candor and informed wisdom of Professor Willis Reese, and so I will try to use his anecdotal insights only as a launching pad for my long repressed ambivalence about law schools and legal education. On the whole, Professor Reese comes down on the side of student brains as against the prepared onslaught of the faculty. Nothing can harm the good student and very little can be expected to help him since he often is abler than the teacher and even more often, believes it. Despite Professor Reese's affluent infrastructure - …


What Makes A Law School Great?, P. B. Carter Nov 1980

What Makes A Law School Great?, P. B. Carter

Dalhousie Law Journal

For reasons which I find totally elusive Dean Ronald Macdonald has invited me to comment upon Professor Willis Reese's reaction to the conundrum: What makes a Law School great? Professor Reese unconvincingly prefaces his remarks with a protestation that he has "no idea", and he equally unconvincingly punctuates those remarks repeatedly with the phrase "I don't know". Anybody who is acquainted with Professor Reese or his work will neither be surprised by, nor pay the slightest attention to, this display of genuine modesty. It is, however, to the question "What makes a Law School great?", not "What makes Professor Reese …


Le Centenaire De La Facult De Droit De I'Universit De Montréal, Louise Thisdale Nov 1980

Le Centenaire De La Facult De Droit De I'Universit De Montréal, Louise Thisdale

Dalhousie Law Journal

L'annee 1978 marquait le centi~me anniversaire de la fondation de la facult6 de droit de l'Universit6 de Montreal. Pour plus d'exactitude, il faudrait preciser qu'il s'agit plutet du centenaire de la faculte de droit seulement puisqu'en 1878, l'Universite de Montreal n'existait pas encore; ' cette epoque elle fut inaugurée comme Succursale de l'Universite Laval 'a Montreal. Et ce n'est qu'en 1920 qu'elle fut constituee en corporation sous le nom d'Universite de Montreal.


Universitd De Moncton's Common Law School: A Unique Experience, Pierre Patenaude Nov 1980

Universitd De Moncton's Common Law School: A Unique Experience, Pierre Patenaude

Dalhousie Law Journal

At their founding, the nine predominantly anglophone provinces of Canada adopted the English legal system patterning their legal institutions upon those of Britain and accepting English public and private law as it then existed. Quebec, on the other hand, modelled its legal system on that of France and most of the private law of Quebec is of French origin. As a result of this historical divergence, French language legal education in Canada, which has hitherto existed only in Quebec, has trained civilian lawyers who are unable to practise in other Canadian provinces. The result of the situation has been that …


"If I Were Dean. .. ", Moffatt Hancock Nov 1980

"If I Were Dean. .. ", Moffatt Hancock

Dalhousie Law Journal

"It is the crowning glory of this law school that it has kindled in many hearts an inextinguishable fire." Mr. Justice Holmes' Willis Reese's droll, colloquial, and slightly tongue-in-cheek remarks about what makes a law school "great" recall the success achieved by the law teachers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in establishing what came to be the exclusive system of legal education in the United States and building up those famous law schools that are its oldest exemplars. As late as 1890 the vast majority of law students were trained by a haphazard combination of clerking in …
