The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade Dec 2017

The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade

John Wade

Legal educators have often developed courses with the purported goal of teaching students to “think like lawyers.” Yet little is known about the ways various classes of lawyers think or behave. This paper offers some insights through anecdotal observations of the behaviour of family lawyers in Sydney. It must be conceded, however, that even beginning to demystify lawyerly behaviour does little to resolve current debates about the goals and methods of legal education.


The Motivating Effects Of Temporal Landmarks: Evidence From The Field And Lab, Jonathan Lee, Hengchen Dai Jun 2017

The Motivating Effects Of Temporal Landmarks: Evidence From The Field And Lab, Jonathan Lee, Hengchen Dai

Missouri Law Review

People often set and strive for goals in their pursuit of a better self. For example, individuals may commit to health goals, such as eating less junk food or quitting smoking; others may set relationship goals, such as being more compassionate and attentive; and criminals may declare their intention to abstain from illegal behaviors. Despite their best intentions, however, individuals often find themselves committing undesirable actions in violation of their goals. Dieters may fail to resist temptation and eat a donut; spouses may fail to control their emotions and lash out at loved ones after a stressful work day; and ...


Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It: Taking Law School Mission Statements Seriously, Irene Scharf, Vanessa Merton Jan 2017

Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It: Taking Law School Mission Statements Seriously, Irene Scharf, Vanessa Merton

Faculty Publications

A law school can best achieve excellence and have the most effective academic program when it possesses a clear mission, a plan to achieve that mission, and the capacity and willingness to measure its success or failure. Absent a defined mission and the identification of attendant student and institutional outcomes, a law school lacks focus and its curriculum becomes a collection of discrete activities without coherence.

Grit And Legal Education, Emily Zimmerman, Leah Brogan Nov 2015

Grit And Legal Education, Emily Zimmerman, Leah Brogan

Pace Law Review

One factor that has received much attention in recent years is “grit,” which has been defined as “perseverance and passion for long-term goals.” Although grit has been studied in a number of different contexts, grit is understudied in the context of legal education. In light of the existing research regarding grit and performance, and the ongoing interest in law student learning, motivation, and performance, we undertook a research project to investigate the relationship between grit and law school academic performance. Although we hypothesized that grit would be positively related to law school GPA, we did not find a statistically significant ...


Welfare Standards In U.S. And E.U. Antitrust Enforcement, Roger D. Blair, D. Daniel Sokol Nov 2014

Welfare Standards In U.S. And E.U. Antitrust Enforcement, Roger D. Blair, D. Daniel Sokol

D. Daniel Sokol

The potential goals of antitrust are numerous. Goals matter to antitrust. We believe that it is total welfare rather than consumer welfare that should drive antitrust analysis. We use this Article as an opportunity to explore both a comparative analysis of welfare standards across E. U. and US. competition systems and the impact of welfare standards on global antitrust systemwide welfare.

In this Article, we analyze two types of situations in which there would be a different outcome based on the goal implemented. One scenario involves resale price maintenance (RPM). For RPM, we argue that even if there were a ...


Government Goals And Policy Get In The Way Of Our Happiness, Brian Martin Jan 2014

Government Goals And Policy Get In The Way Of Our Happiness, Brian Martin

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

Australian government policy and happiness research are pointing in very different directions.

A prime goal of government policy is economic growth. Many Australians go along with this, assuming that more money will make them happier. However, policy and common belief need to confront an increasing body of research that suggests a different approach to improving well-being.

Purposeless Construction, David M. Driesen Jul 2012

Purposeless Construction, David M. Driesen

David M Driesen

This Article critiques the Supreme Court’s tendency to embrace “purposeless construction”— statutory construction that ignores legislation’’ underlying goals. It constructs a new democratic theory supporting purposeful construction, defined as an approach to construction that favors construction of ambiguous text to advance a statute’s underlying goal. That theory maintains that statutory goals, especially those set out in the legislative text or frequently proclaimed in public, tend to reflect public values to a greater extent than other statutory provisions. Politicians carefully choose goals for statutes that “sell” the statute to the public. In order to do this, they must announce ...


What Do Clients Of Mediators "Want"?, John Wade Apr 2010

What Do Clients Of Mediators "Want"?, John Wade

John Wade

Extract: This title reflects a familiar marketing and ethical question for all service providers – what do clients of plumbers/doctors/psychologists/builders/lawyers etc want? Predictably, the answers given by anecdote, “theory” and more systematic research are complicated and conflicting. There is a simple answer to every complex question, and it is wrong. There are three elements in the question – what do the (1) clients of (2) mediators (3) want?

The establishment of MPAs is, in essence, a political process and to this end the great majority of MPAs have been established by national authorities, or by state authorities in some larger naitons. Of course oceanographic pattern and processes have no cognizance of political boundaries. Over the last decade, many regional organizations have been dedicating efforts to mprove larger-scale MPA planning and management.

First-To-File: Promoting The Goals Of The United States Patent System As Demonstrated Through The Biotechnology Industry, Whitney E. Fraser Tiedemann Jan 2007

First-To-File: Promoting The Goals Of The United States Patent System As Demonstrated Through The Biotechnology Industry, Whitney E. Fraser Tiedemann

University of San Francisco Law Review

This Comment illustrates that moving to a first-to-file system of patent priority would greatly benefit the biotechnology industry and the United States patent system. A first-to-file system would promote the innovative goals of the patent system by encouraging early public disclosure and providing greater certainty of protection.


Legal Reform In Contemporary Japan, Eric Feldman Dec 2006

Legal Reform In Contemporary Japan, Eric Feldman

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

In this chapter I offer a preliminary assessment of a quickly moving target—legal reform and its impact on rights in Japan. Although a broad consensus has emerged among interested parties that at least some degree of reform is desirable, there is significant disagreement about the goals of reform, and also about the likelihood that it will achieve certain objectives. Some commentators believe that the Japanese legal system is on the cusp of a “revolution” that will shore up long-neglected rights and create new entitlements. Others predict that the consequences of reform will be modest; and they despair that aggrieved ...


When You Wish Upon Dastar: Creative Provenance And The Lanham Act, Mary Lafrance Jan 2005

When You Wish Upon Dastar: Creative Provenance And The Lanham Act, Mary Lafrance

Scholarly Works

This Article examines the application of section 43(a) of the Lanham Act to claims of reverse passing off through the lens of the Supreme Court's unpersuasive effort in Dastar Corp. v. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. to exclude a single class of reverse passing off-claims - those involving “expressive” works as opposed to physical commodities - from the scope of section 43(a). The Article critiques the Court's analysis of section 43(a) in light of case law and the pertinent legislative history, including, the Trademark Law Revision Act of 1988, the Berne Convention Implementation Act of 1988, and ...
