Faculty Publications

Project CLEAR-Computers in Legal Education: Assistance with Research-applies computer techniques to teaching and advising students about legal research. "Hypertext" is a software technique appropriate both for creating information structures that users can browse through, and for creating question-and-answer decision trees that provide specific advice to users. These two hypertext techniques have been put together in Project CLEAR's Paper Choice, a computer program that provides knowledge and gives advice to law students about legal research.


Scholarship Amok: Excesses In The Pursuit Of Truth And Tenure, Kenneth Lasson Feb 1990

Scholarship Amok: Excesses In The Pursuit Of Truth And Tenure, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

In 1937, when Fred Rodell issued his once-famous diatribe, some 150 law-related journals were being published (not to mention thousands of local newspapers and countless full-color comic books). Now there are over eight hundred legal periodicals (not to mention a drastically dwindled number of daily papers, and precious few comics). Both Solomon and Rodell have been all but forgotten. What, indeed, have we wrought? Although Rodell predicted his original panning would have no effect, could he have anticipated the sheer dimensions of this worst-case scenario - that his "professional purveyors of pretentious poppycock" would have spawned so furiously, that the …

Joining Hands And Smarts: Teaching Manual Legal Research Through Collaborative Learning Groups, Thomas Michael Mcdonnell Jan 1990

Joining Hands And Smarts: Teaching Manual Legal Research Through Collaborative Learning Groups, Thomas Michael Mcdonnell

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

My hypothesis was that a group of law students who research a problem together will learn legal research better than students who work individually. I further hypothesized that if the group research could be undertaken during class time under the direct supervision of the instructor and the teaching assistant, the students would be less intimidated by manual research tools and would be better prepared to work on their own. The following three-step method was employed: (1) the students read about the tool; (2) the instructor discussed the tool in class; and (3) immediately following the discussion, students went to the …

Dictionary Developments: Book Review, Daniel H. Foote Jan 1990

Dictionary Developments: Book Review, Daniel H. Foote

Book Reviews

English-Japanese: The Dictionary of Anglo-American Law, published by the University of Tokyo Press, represents a tremendous achievement. Its publication in 1991 culminated a'seven-year effort in which more than fifty leading Japanese scholars actively participated. These included specialists in a wide range of fields, not just professors of Anglo-American law. The effort was overseen-and a heavy share of the work borne by-a seven-member Editorial Committee, which held more than 150 meetings in the process of preparing the dictionary. Based on accounts I have received from many of the professors who participated in the project, however, it is clear that the …


Judging The Judges: Three Opinions, James Boyd White Jan 1990

Judging The Judges: Three Opinions, James Boyd White

Articles

For some time I have been working on the problem of judicial criticism, focusing especially on the question: What is it in the work of a judge that leads us to admire a judicial opinion with the result of which we disagree, or to condemn an opinion that "comes out" the way we would do if we were charged with the responsibility of decision? The response I have been making is that this kind of judicial excellence (and its opposite too) lies in the sort of social and intellectual action in which the opinion engages: in the character the court …

Intoxication And Aggression, Jeffrey Fagan Jan 1990

Intoxication And Aggression, Jeffrey Fagan

Faculty Scholarship

Evidence of an association between use of illicit substances and aggressive behavior is pervasive. But the precise causal mechanisms by which aggression is influenced by intoxicants are still not well understood. Research on intoxication and aggression often has overlooked the nonviolent behavior of most substance users, controlled use of substances, and the evidence from other cultures of a weak or nonexistent relation between substance use and aggression. There is only limited evidence that ingestion of substances is a direct, pharmacological cause of aggression. The temporal order of substance use and aggression does not indicate a causal role for intoxicants. Research …
