A Bibliography Of Faculty Scholarship, Law Library May 2021

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 ...


Strengthening The International Clinical Scholarly Community: Opportunities For The Clinical Law Review And Beyond, Leah Wortham Jan 2019

Strengthening The International Clinical Scholarly Community: Opportunities For The Clinical Law Review And Beyond, Leah Wortham

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

In its first 25 years, the Clinical Law Review (CLR) provided a ground-breaking foundation to build a scholarly field inspired and informed by clinical work and to legitimate that scholarship within the academy. The CLR broadened the window for clinicians to put their work in a wider context of other clinicians' experience, and with that context and comparison, to build theory from this common body of endeavor.

As Part I describes, 12 of the CLR's 404 works in its 25-year history include voices from outside the United States. While some countries' clinical education history is as old, or older ...


Lawyering Outside Lawsuits: Incorporating Negotiations, Settlements, And Mediations Into The Legal Writing Curriculum, Olivia Farrar, A.G. Harmon Jan 2010

Lawyering Outside Lawsuits: Incorporating Negotiations, Settlements, And Mediations Into The Legal Writing Curriculum, Olivia Farrar, A.G. Harmon

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

Legal education is built around a core irony: almost no human disputes are resolved via trials, and yet we dedicate years to teaching law students how to resolve disputes via litigation. To remedy this incongruity between legal education and the reality of lawyering, the two of us have begun integrating negotiations, settlements, and mediation into our 1L legal writing curriculum. This article describes why and how we have introduced our students to these non-litigation skill sets, starting to train them in what we believe may be their most powerful dispute resolution skills when they enter the legal world.

Reflections On The Nature Of Legal Scholarship In The Post-Realist Era, Marin Roger Scordato Jan 2008

Reflections On The Nature Of Legal Scholarship In The Post-Realist Era, Marin Roger Scordato

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This article presents a tightly organized and closely reasoned analysis of legal scholarship in the current post-realist era. Secure and well-defined within the formalist legal world of the nineteenth century, the practice of legal scholarship has been profoundly affected by the realist revolution of the early twentieth century and the instrumentalist view of law that now prevails in the twenty-first century. In response, legal scholars have been forced to dramatically alter the focus, the materials and the basic methods of their study. The practice of legal scholarship is currently occupied in a prolonged struggle to adapt to these changes and ...

The 50th Anniversary Of The Catholic University Law Review, Ralph J. Rohner Jan 2001

The 50th Anniversary Of The Catholic University Law Review, Ralph J. Rohner

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This is an essay, not a history, on the first fifty years of the Catholic University Law Review. When an enterprise survives that long, it is cause for acknowledgment and celebration. This seems especially appropriate for the Law Review when we consider that it is managed by amateurs, relies on volunteer labor, and changes leadership every year; yet, it has grown and matured into a respectable scholarly journal. There is reason to wonder from where the Law Review has come, what it has accomplished, and how and where it is going. There is reason, too, to reminisce over half a ...

Of Painters, Sculptors, Quill Pens And Microscopes: Teaching Legal Writers In The Electronic Age, Lucia A. Silecchia Jan 1997

Of Painters, Sculptors, Quill Pens And Microscopes: Teaching Legal Writers In The Electronic Age, Lucia A. Silecchia

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

No longer do lawyers write most of their work “by hand.” Instead, most legal writing is now done on word processors. This has the potential to change the way lawyers write in a fundamental way. Because word processors make it easier to write more than was possible “by hand” modern legal writers are more akin to sculptors than painters. Such writers must create finely-tuned written products from the large quantities of material that can now be inputted into a document and then edited and whittled away to create a finished product.

This Article examines how the arrival of the electronic ...


The Use Of Journals In Legal Education: A Tool For Reflection, J.P. "Sandy" Ogilvy Jan 1996

The Use Of Journals In Legal Education: A Tool For Reflection, J.P. "Sandy" Ogilvy

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This Article demonstrates that the journal is a pedagogical tool worthy of more explicit attention by both clinical law teachers and non-clinical faculty alike. It introduces some of the literature on critical thinking and learning theory that supports the assignment of journals as an important tool in legal education; it provides a starting point for articulating pedagogical goals that can be met through journal assignments; and it alerts the first-time user to the challenges inherent in the use of journals in legal education.


Legal Skills Training In The First Year Of Law School: Research? Writing? Analysis? Or More?, Lucia A. Silecchia Jan 1996

Legal Skills Training In The First Year Of Law School: Research? Writing? Analysis? Or More?, Lucia A. Silecchia

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

This Article will explore the issues that arise as more and more law schools face important definitional questions: To what extent should first year programs focus on providing in-depth research and writing training? To what extent should those programs adopt a more holistic curriculum that exposes students to a range of skills beyond research and writing?

The Article will begin with a description of what is actually done in first year programs at American law schools. This information was gathered in a Spring 1995 survey of law school research and writing programs, to which representatives of 111 schools responded. It ...

Legal Theory And Linguistic Reality: A Critical Examination Of Modern Legal Scholarship, Marin Roger Scordato Jan 1989

Legal Theory And Linguistic Reality: A Critical Examination Of Modern Legal Scholarship, Marin Roger Scordato

Scholarly Articles and Other Contributions

To establish a starting point for the analysis, I begin by identifying and discussing the possible functions served by scholarship in a legal environment defined by the classic jurisprudence of natural law. I then consider the intellectual challenge posed to natural law jurisprudence by the modern Legal Realist movement and the consequences of that challenge for legal scholarship in particular. Lastly, I attempt to characterize the mainstream of current legal scholarship as a series of variations on two very basic intellectual responses to the modern Realist critique of established legal process and traditional legal scholarship.
