The New Japanese Law Schools, James R. Maxeiner Sep 2003

The New Japanese Law Schools, James R. Maxeiner

ExpressO

Japan is in the process of implementing a comprehensive reform of its justice system. At the heart of the reform is a complete overhaul of the system of legal education. The new system is intended to increase substantially the number of lawyers in the country. On April 1, 2004 as many as 72 new law schools are to come into existence. Japanese legal education is shifting from a German-inspired law faculty approach to an American-style law school system. Based on first-hand observations, this article discusses the present and future system of Japanese legal education with reference to its foreign counterparts.


Interpersonal Dynamics, Joshua D. Rosenberg Sep 2003

Interpersonal Dynamics, Joshua D. Rosenberg

ExpressO

This article explains the importance of relationship skills to attorneys. It explains why, despite the significance of these skills to attorneys, law schools and law firms ignore them. It then explains how these skills can be taught in law school, and how a relation al perspective can become not simply an important part of the law, but also an important part of the lives of lawyers. It develops and supports an ap proach that develops the cognitive, behavioral, perceptual and emotional skills and awareness essential to both accurate communication and productive and meaningful relationships. This approach is quite different from ...


The Lawyer As Legal Scholar, Michael J. Madison Sep 2003

The Lawyer As Legal Scholar, Michael J. Madison

Michael J. Madison

I review Eugene Volokh's recent book, Academic Legal Writing. The book is nominally directed to law students and those who teach them (and for those audiences, it is outstanding), but it also contains a number of valuable lessons for published scholars. The book is more than a writing manual, however. I argue that Professor Volokh suggests implicitly that scholarship is underappreciated as a dimension of the legal profession. A well-trained lawyer, in other words, should have experience as a scholar. The argument sheds new light on ongoing discussions about the character of law schools.

Emerging Issues On The Internet For The Legal Profession, Rosaria Vigorito

ExpressO

The paper offers an overview of the emerging issues raised by the Internet in the legal profession. In particular, the extension of the attorney-client privilege; the application of the ethics principle of confidentiality to email communications; Internet connectivity and the security issues pertaining to it; and, general "cyberlegalethics" concerns raised by using the Internet, such as avoiding the unauthorized practice of law and verifying information found on the Web.


Regulatory Mismatch In The International Market For Legal Services, Carole Silver May 2003

Regulatory Mismatch In The International Market For Legal Services, Carole Silver

Carole Silver

The increasingly international reach of law owes part of its momentum to individual lawyers and law firms that function as carriers of ideas, processes and policies. U.S. lawyers are important participants in this expanding influence of law, as they educate, train and deploy individuals educated and licensed in the U.S. and abroad. This article examines the ways in which law firms internationalize, and considers the regulatory environment governing crucial interactions between U.S. and foreign-educated lawyers. It builds upon prior work that investigated the impact on U.S. law firms of the development of an international market for ...


A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel Apr 2003

A Lawyer's Calling, Lauren K. Robel

Lauren Robel (2002 Acting; 2003-2011)

The paths that led the current first-year class, the Class of 2005, to the School of Law are as varied as the paths they - like you - will follow after graduation. Students come to law from other professions, from the study of many other disciplines, from communities across the country and around the world - both communities based on proximihJ and those based on affinity. While the study of law presents new vocabularies, skills, and ideas, that study does not require leaving scholarly, professional, and personal histories at the door. Quite the contrary - what makes law a particularly powerful and humane force ...

The Qualified Legal Compliance Committee: Using The Attorney Conduct Rules To Restructure The Board Of Directors, Jill E. Fisch, Caroline M. Gentile Jan 2003

The Qualified Legal Compliance Committee: Using The Attorney Conduct Rules To Restructure The Board Of Directors, Jill E. Fisch, Caroline M. Gentile

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

The Securities and Exchange Commission introduced a new corporate governance structure, the qualified legal compliance committee, as part of the professional standards of conduct for attorneys mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. QLCCs are consistent with the Commission’s general approach to improving corporate governance through specialized committees of independent directors. This Article suggests, however, that assessing the benefits and costs of creating QLCCs may be more complex than is initially apparent. Importantly, QLCCs are unlikely to be effective in the absence of incentives for active director monitoring. This Article concludes by considering three ways of increasing these incentives.
