Cracking The Egg: Which Came First—Stigma Or Affirmative Action?, Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Emily Houh, Mary Campbell Oct 2008

Cracking The Egg: Which Came First—Stigma Or Affirmative Action?, Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Emily Houh, Mary Campbell

Faculty Scholarship

This Article examines the strength of arguments concerning the causal connection between racial stigma and affirmative action. In so doing, this article reports and analyzes the results of a survey on internal stigma (feelings of dependency, inadequacy, or guilt) and external stigma (the burden of others' resentment or doubt about one's qualifications) for the Class of 2009 at seven public law schools, four of which employed race-based affirmative action policies when the Class of 2009 was admitted and three of which did not use such policies at that time. Specifically, this Article examines and presents survey findings of 1 ...

Report Of The Commission To Assess The Threat To The United States From Emp Attack: Critical National Infrastructures, William R. Graham Jul 2008

Report Of The Commission To Assess The Threat To The United States From Emp Attack: Critical National Infrastructures, William R. Graham

George H Baker

The physical and social fabric of the United States is sustained by a system of systems; a complex and dynamic network of interlocking and interdependent infrastructures (“critical national infrastructures”) whose harmonious functioning enables the myriad actions, transactions, and information flow that undergird the orderly conduct of civil society in this country. The vulnerability of these frastructures to threats — deliberate, accidental, and acts of nature — is the focus of greatly heightened concern in the current era, a process accelerated by the events of 9/11 and recent hurricanes, including Katrina and Rita. This report presents the results of the Commission’s ...

On Becoming A Collaborative Professional: From Paradigm Shifting To Transformative Learning Through Critical Reflection And Dialogue, Richard W. Shields

Journal of Dispute Resolution

In Part II, I provide a brief overview of CL and its underlying assumptions. A description of CL training and learning objectives follows in Parts III and IV. In Parts V and VI, I review the paradigm shifting and transformative learning literature. I provide an overview of the study in Part VII, followed by my analysis of the data in Parts VIII and IX. In Part X, I conclude with a discussion of critical reflection and dialogue in a CL training context.


The Course Of True Human Rights Progress Never Did Run Smooth, Diane Marie Amann Jul 2008

The Course Of True Human Rights Progress Never Did Run Smooth, Diane Marie Amann

Scholarly Works

As the United States moves toward the inauguration in January 2009 of a new President, greater attention is paid to what the country might do to restore and reinforce its traditional role as a leader in the promotion of human rights. This essay warns against any assumption that innovation alone will assure greater enforcement of rights; its points of reference are not only the current administration, but also one long past, that of President John F. Kennedy. Rather than jump to embrace new, global concepts like responsibility to protect, therefore, it argues for careful pursuit of local change. It then ...


Mamaloshen At Hopkins: The Education Of Marc Caplan, Kenneth Lasson Jun 2008

Mamaloshen At Hopkins: The Education Of Marc Caplan, Kenneth Lasson

All Faculty Scholarship

This short article recounts the life story of Johns Hopkins Professor Marc Caplan, the first professor of Yiddish at that institution. He was born in Alexandria, La, and thus had his origins in the Deep South, in that town of about 100 Jewish families. He eventually went to Yale, and New York University, finally finding his present job at Hopkins, in Baltimore, MD.

Holistic Approaches To Classroom Instruction, A Precursor To More Collaborative Lawyers: Reflections Of A Professor And Collaborative Lawyer, Kathy-Ann K. Hart Mar 2008

Holistic Approaches To Classroom Instruction, A Precursor To More Collaborative Lawyers: Reflections Of A Professor And Collaborative Lawyer, Kathy-Ann K. Hart

Kathy-Ann K Hart

Coupling of academia and practice in legal curricula can make programs of law study more holistic than many of them currently are. Encouraging law students to learn in more than one way in the classroom engages them as multi-dimensional learners or beings. As a collaborative lawyer I have a vested interest in increasing the numbers of lawyers who choose collaborative practice and I believe that peaceful, more co-operative ways of practicing law (like employing collaborative principles) can create future lawyers and a legal profession that’s healthier and happier. In this article, I reflect on my application of holistic approaches ...


Mandatory Legal Education Is A Step In The Right Direction, Richard Devlin, Jocelyn Downie Feb 2008

Mandatory Legal Education Is A Step In The Right Direction, Richard Devlin, Jocelyn Downie

Richard Devlin, FRSC

For decades, and from sea to sea to sea, many Canadian lawyers have resisted and ridiculed mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE). But the winds of change are blowing from the West.

As of January 2009 all lawyers in British Columbia will be obliged to complete 12 hours of “continuing professional development” per year. While some other provinces have imposed mandatory reporting obligations for CLE, British Columbia is the first to grasp the nettle and make actual participation in CLE mandatory. There are a number of compelling reasons for concluding that this is a very good thing.


Engines Of Inequality: Class, Race, And Family Structure, Amy L. Wax Jan 2008

Engines Of Inequality: Class, Race, And Family Structure, Amy L. Wax

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

The past 30 years have witnessed a dramatic divergence in family structure by social class, income, education, and race. This article reviews the data on these trends, explores their significance, and assesses social scientists’ recent attempts to explain them. The article concludes that society-wide changes in economic conditions or social expectations cannot account for these patterns. Rather, for reasons that are poorly understood, cultural disparities have emerged by class and race in attitudes and behaviors surrounding family, sexuality, and reproduction. These disparities will likely fuel social and economic inequality and contribute to disparities in children’s life prospects for decades ...


Really Leaving No Child Behind: How The Supreme Court’S Student Speech Doctrine Compromises Modern Education Reform— And How It Can Use The In Loco Parentis Doctrine To Change It, Scott J. Street Jan 2008

Really Leaving No Child Behind: How The Supreme Court’S Student Speech Doctrine Compromises Modern Education Reform— And How It Can Use The In Loco Parentis Doctrine To Change It, Scott J. Street

Scott J Street

REALLY LEAVING NO CHILD BEHIND: HOW THE SUPREME COURT’S STUDENT SPEECH DOCTRINE COMPROMISES MODERN EDUCATION REFORM— AND HOW IT CAN USE THE IN LOCO PARENTIS DOCTRINE TO CHANGE IT In June, the Supreme Court decided that a high school principal did not violate one of her student’s First Amendment rights when she punished him for displaying a sign that read “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” as the Olympic torch passed their Alaska school. See Morse v. Frederick, 127 S. Ct. 2618 (2007). But in reaching that conclusion, the Court answered hardly any of the compelling questions that have arisen ...


Basque In The Foral Community Of Navarre (Cfn), Xabier Irujo, Iñigo Urrutia Jan 2008

Basque In The Foral Community Of Navarre (Cfn), Xabier Irujo, Iñigo Urrutia

Iñigo URRUTIA

The status of the Basque language in Navarre is characterized by the enforcement of a system of linguistic zones that modulates citizens’ linguistic rights depending on where geographically they wish to exercise such rights. In this chapter, the authors describe the legal situation of the Basque language and analyze the development of the linguistic policy in Navarre over the last few years, characterized as it is by its progressively restricted treatment with respect to its own language, which has brought about rebukes from European instances.


Institutes Of Higher Education, Safety Swords, And Privacy Shields: Reconciling Ferpa And The Common Law, Stephanie D. Humphries Jan 2008

Institutes Of Higher Education, Safety Swords, And Privacy Shields: Reconciling Ferpa And The Common Law, Stephanie D. Humphries

Stephanie D Humphries

In light of the Virginia Tech shootings, this Note argues that both FERPA and the common law contain internal tensions regarding safety and privacy that neither Congress nor the courts have adequately reconciled, and that important discrepancies regarding information sharing exist between IHEs' practices, the common law's demands, and FERPA's limitations.

Part I provides background on FERPA and argues that FERPA's emergency exception is too narrow and confusing, so that IHEs default to the nondisclosure option rather than disclosing information to third parties, such as parents, when students threaten to harm themselves or others. At the same ...

I'D Just As Soon Flunk You As Look At You?: The Evolution To Humanizing In A Large Classroom, Justine A. Dunlap

Faculty Publications

Initially, this article sets forth my own progress in becoming a teacher who incorporates humanizing principles. Next, the article analyzes some of the theory behind the humanizing legal education principles. The article will then present some specific teaching techniques for those interested in adding a humanizing dimension to their teaching, focusing primarily on the large classroom setting. The article will also note the barriers to adopting humanizing techniques, as well as possible ways to overcome those barriers.

Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe: How Usda Commodities Dumping Ruined The National School Lunch Program, J. Amy Dillard

All Faculty Scholarship

Just as the scales beneath the feet of our nation's children are reaching a tipping point, so too is the social movement of providing local, organic foods for America's schoolchildren. This is welcome news to Alice Waters and others who have long-promoted the health and lifestyle benefits of consuming whole, organic, locally grown and produced foods. Change is under way in many districts around the country; one of the most promising is the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD), which has undergone a complete overhaul of its school lunch program under the leadership of the "Renegade Lunch Lady," Chef ...


The Problem Of Religious Learning, Marc O. Degirolami Jan 2008

The Problem Of Religious Learning, Marc O. Degirolami

Faculty Publications

The problem of religious learning is that religion—including the teaching about religion—must be separated from liberal public education, but that the two cannot be entirely separated if the aims of liberal public education are to be realized. It is a problem that has gone largely unexamined by courts, constitutional scholars, and other legal theorists. Though the U.S. Supreme Court has offered a few terse statements about the permissibility of teaching about religion in its Establishment Clause jurisprudence, and scholars frequently urge policies for or against such controversial subjects as Intelligent Design or graduation prayers, insufficient attention has ...
