The Case For A Flat-Earth Law School, Erik M. Jensen Feb 2006

The Case For A Flat-Earth Law School, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This essay suggests - usually politely - that the American legal academy has been overdoing its push for globalization, and, as a result, education in the basics has suffered. That's a pity because law school graduates need to know the basics to be successful not only in Smalltown USA, but also on a world stage.


Death By Bluebook, Erik M. Jensen Feb 2006

Death By Bluebook, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This review considers a novel about life (and death) on the University of Chicago Law Review, where editors and associates seem to do little but have sex, connive to get ahead, have sex, kill (with Gunther's con law casebook, no less), and have sex. The reviewer, who didn't attend the U of C law school, believes it all.


Tough On Scholarship, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2006

Tough On Scholarship, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

This series of three articles (that's why it's a trilogy, duh-h-h) chronicles the legal-academic career of one S. Breckinridge Tushingham ("Breck" for short). As the trilogy unfolds, Breck works his way up (or maybe it's down) from his first academic position to an established professorship to dean of the South Soybean (Soso) State University law school. In the process of recording his professional history, and thus memorializing it for the ages, Breck provides (probably defamatory) insights into the American legal academy.


Using Graphics To Teach Evidence, Kevin C. Mcmunigal Jan 2006

Using Graphics To Teach Evidence, Kevin C. Mcmunigal

Faculty Publications

As an Assistant United States Attorney in the general crimes unit of a metropolitan United States Attorney's Office, I regularly tried a variety of cases ranging from bank robberies and drug offenses to white collar crimes. Regardless of the type of crime, I frequently found various types of graphics useful in presenting the case. Examples included a chart providing a point by point comparison of modus operandi in two armed bank robberies and a map of the scene of a controlled purchase of cocaine showing the locations and movements of multiple defendants, an informant, and federal agents. Such graphics ...

Reflections On Editing A Journal For Law Teachers, Erik M. Jensen Jan 2002

Reflections On Editing A Journal For Law Teachers, Erik M. Jensen

Faculty Publications

One should hesitate to draw grand conclusions based on personal experience, but I won't. What I'll do in this essay is discuss some of the decidedly unscientific lessons about American legal education, or at least about the scholarship dealing with American legal education, that I've drawn from my editorial experience: About American legal education's provincialism, about the limited interest in writing on pedagogical subjects, about quality of writing, and about the politicization of the legal academy.

Managing Internal Administrative Change, Joseph A. Custer

Faculty Publications

Mr. Custer considers the impact of already instituted internal administrative change on library staff and how best to deal with it. He approaches the topic by describing what his own library did when faced with significant internal administrative restructuring.


Responding To The Value Imperative: Learning To Create Value In The Resolution Of Disputes, Kenneth Margolis Jan 1998

Responding To The Value Imperative: Learning To Create Value In The Resolution Of Disputes, Kenneth Margolis

Faculty Publications

This article discusses another topic for clinical teachers to consider adding to their teaching agendas. In this paper, I identify the "value imperative" implicit in the attorney-client relationship and suggest that a perception by the client of high value in the relationship is necessary for its success. Briefly, I describe value in legal services as the client's perception of the ratio of benefits received from legal representation to the sacrifices necessary to obtain those benefits. The more the ratio favors benefits over sacrifices, the greater the value perceived by the client. I present a model describing value in legal ...
