Working With Non-Law School Patrons, Ashley A. Ahlbrand Sep 2021

Working With Non-Law School Patrons, Ashley A. Ahlbrand

Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Ashley Ahlbrand's contribution to the open access textbook, Introduction to Law Librarianship, is chapter 17, "Working with Non-law School Patrons."

Working in an academic law library, the primary patrons are the law school’s faculty and students. However, these may not be the exclusive patronage of the law library. Particularly in the case of a public law school library, the law librarian is likely to serve patrons outside of the law school as well. These patrons come from a diversity of backgrounds, with a range of legal research needs. Working with non-law school patrons can present a number of ...


Accessibility, Susan David Demaine Aug 2021

Accessibility, Susan David Demaine

Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Susan deMaine's contribution to the open access textbook, Introduction to Law Librarianship, is chapter 3, "Accessibility."

Abstract: Equitable access, which includes access for people with disabilities, is included in the first principle of the ethical codes of both the American Association of Law Libraries and the American Library Association. Accessibility in law libraries that are open to the public is an especially keen concern because it implicates access to justice and government information, both of which are key to a successful democracy. This chapter will introduce concepts that help us think productively about accessibility and explore accessibility issues in ...


The Role Of Legal Education In Anti-Corruption In The Light Of The Inevitability Of Basic Human Rights: "An Empirical, Applied Study From An Academic Legal Perspective", بهاء الدين خويرة Jul 2021

The Role Of Legal Education In Anti-Corruption In The Light Of The Inevitability Of Basic Human Rights: "An Empirical, Applied Study From An Academic Legal Perspective", بهاء الدين خويرة

Jerash for Research and Studies Journal مجلة جرش للبحوث والدراسات

This research presents an empirical, academic study to illustrate the role of legal education in anti-corruption within the framework of the educational curricula that are applied at the faculties of law, particularly the courses specialized in the integrity, transparency, accountability and anti-corruption issues; and the obstacles that face their teaching in Arab countries that are considered naturally as developing countries within low patterns and levels; that still make the Arab citizen in general and the knowledge seeker in particular in the position of the influenced rather than an influential element in the anti-corruption system.

Perhaps the most serious problems faced ...


“Presentation Principles”: Connecting Core Lawyering Skills To A Contemporary Lawyering Framework In The Digital Age, Ann Shalleck Apr 2021

“Presentation Principles”: Connecting Core Lawyering Skills To A Contemporary Lawyering Framework In The Digital Age, Ann Shalleck

Presentations

One way we try to make the connection between core lawyering skills and those inherent in contemporary practice is to examine what unifies what might otherwise be considered discrete lawyering skills. Because we are so aware of how technology is constantly changing and how lawyers and our students need to adapt to its forms and logics in their practice, familiar issues of how to communicate become more evident to us. Technology, therefore, gives us the opportunity to reexamine long held practices, habits of mind, and approaches to teaching students how to present information to colleagues, supervisors, clients, adversaries, tribunals, and ...

The Way To Barbara Armstrong, First Tenure-Track Law Professor In An Accredited Us Law School, Susan Carle

Contributions to Books

This is the third volume in a trilogy on gender issues in legal occupations. An overview of Women in the World ’ s Legal Professions (Schultz and Shaw 2003) was followed by Gender and Judging (Schultz and Shaw 2013), finally to be completed by this study on women teachers of law. All three books have been published by Hart Publishing, to whom we are grateful for their unceasing support over so many years. Our thanks also go to the International Institute for the Sociology of Law for facilitating the inclusion of all three volumes in their O ñ ati Socio-Legal Series.

Hierarchies Of Elitism And Gender: The Bluebook And The Alwd Guide, Steven K. Homer Jan 2021

Hierarchies Of Elitism And Gender: The Bluebook And The Alwd Guide, Steven K. Homer

Pace Law Review

Hierarchies persist in legal academia. Some of these, while in plain view, are not so obvious because they manifest in seemingly small, mundane choices. Synecdoche is a rhetorical device used to show how one detail in a story tells the story of the whole.

This Article examines hierarchies of elitism and gender through a lens of synecdoche. The focus is on the choice of citation guide. Even something as seemingly benign and neutral as choosing a citation guide can reveal hierarchies of elitism and gender bias in legal education and the legal profession. Put another way, the choice of citation ...


Now Is Not The Time For Another Law School Lecture: An Andragogical Approach To Virtual Learning For Legal Education, Charletta A. Fortson Jan 2021

Now Is Not The Time For Another Law School Lecture: An Andragogical Approach To Virtual Learning For Legal Education, Charletta A. Fortson

Saint Louis University Law Journal

COVID-19 forced nearly every institution of higher learning, as well as others, to quickly pivot from a traditional face-to-face teaching model to an online teaching model. While some institutions had technology in place to quickly adapt, most institutions were not prepared. Even where the technology infrastructure was in place, the faculty were not readily prepared to adapt their teaching style to this online model. Given these challenges, many professors chose the path of least resistance and chose to conduct those lectures just as they always had but just in an online format. However, now was not the time for another ...


Legal Education In A Pandemic: A Crisis And Online Teaching Reveal Who My Students Are, Sonia M. Suter Jan 2021

Legal Education In A Pandemic: A Crisis And Online Teaching Reveal Who My Students Are, Sonia M. Suter

Saint Louis University Law Journal

The COVID-19 pandemic upended things for everyone across the world in so many ways, including at universities and law schools. In switching to online teaching in the mid-semester last spring and continuing to teach first-year law students online this past fall, I have witnessed the strength and compassion of my students even in the face of the challenges of the pandemic, online learning, and political unease in our country. I have been heartened and bolstered by their deep commitment to building community with one another.


Building An Antiracist Law School: Inclusivity In Admissions And Retention Of Diverse Students—Leadership Determines Dei Success, Danielle M. Conway, Bekah Saidman-Krauss, Rebecca Schreiber Jan 2021

Building An Antiracist Law School: Inclusivity In Admissions And Retention Of Diverse Students—Leadership Determines Dei Success, Danielle M. Conway, Bekah Saidman-Krauss, Rebecca Schreiber

Faculty Scholarly Works

Penn State Dickinson Law has been leading with an Antiracist admissions philosophy and corresponding plans for implementation before the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Arguably, this approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)was not identified explicitly as a vision priority for the law school until July 2019, when Dickinson Law welcomed Danielle M. Conway as the first Black Dean and first woman Dean in the law school’s 186-year history. Dean Conway outlined four vision priorities to accomplish within her first five years at Dickinson Law. Vision priority number two calls upon the law school’s administrators to move the ...

Re-Envisioning Law Student Scholarship, Emily Zimmerman Oct 2020

Re-Envisioning Law Student Scholarship, Emily Zimmerman

Catholic University Law Review

This Article recommends that we think more intentionally about how law students’ engagement in scholarship can promote their professional development. In so doing, we should recognize that legal scholarship plays a different role for law students than it does for law professors. Rather than trying to replicate law professors’ relationship with scholarship, the pedagogy of law student scholarship should focus more intentionally on the value of scholarship for law students—most of whom will not become law professors.

This Article suggests that much of the value of scholarship for law students lies in process, rather than product. Rather than thinking ...


Repealing The Statute Of Wizarding Secrecy In Legal Education, Mark Burge Jul 2020

Repealing The Statute Of Wizarding Secrecy In Legal Education, Mark Burge

Faculty Scholarship

In the fictional Harry Potter universe, J.K. Rowling has fashioned a parallel world based on our own, but with the fundamental difference of a separate magical society grafted onto it. In Rowling’s fictional version, the magical population lives among the non-magical Muggle population, but we Muggles are largely unaware of them. This secrecy is by elaborate design and was brought about by centuries-long hostility toward wizards by the non-magical majority. But what if secrecy is precisely the wrong approach? What if widespread wizard-Muggle collaboration were precisely the thing needed to address the enormous and pressing problems of the ...

Korean Code Of Ethics For Attorneys, Wonji Kerper, Changmin Lee Jun 2020

Korean Code Of Ethics For Attorneys, Wonji Kerper, Changmin Lee

Washington International Law Journal

In 2009, Korea implemented a law school educational system, which not only changed the legal education system, but the legal landscape as a whole. This has led to rapid growth in the number of attorneys. Although the increased number of attorneys has resulted in lower barriers to accessing justice, it has also brought the unintended consequence of cut-throat competition. With the number of disciplinary actions rising by four-fold in the last three years, the current version of the Korean Code of Ethics for Attorneys is certainly a step in the right direction but may not be enough to strengthen attorneys ...


Dean's Perspective: The Bar Exam: It's Time For Indiana To Adopt A Uniform Bar Exam, Austen L. Parrish Apr 2020

Dean's Perspective: The Bar Exam: It's Time For Indiana To Adopt A Uniform Bar Exam, Austen L. Parrish

Articles by Maurer Faculty

For most of us, the Bar Exam conjures up memories of grueling prep courses, intensive studying, and a couple of long days of exhaustive tests. In a way, the exam is the final rite of passage from law student to law practitioner. The exam is intended to test minimal professional competency, evaluating an applicant's legal reasoning and ability to apply general legal principles to various fact patterns.

Recently, bar exams throughout the United States have come under scrutiny. Nationwide pass rates have declined significantly. The same has been true for Indiana. Even though pass rates for first-time takers at ...


The Beatitudes, Lawyers, And Bob Cochran, Amelia J. Uelmen Mar 2020

The Beatitudes, Lawyers, And Bob Cochran, Amelia J. Uelmen

Pepperdine Law Review

Written on the occasion of a celebration of the work and scholarship of Bob Cochran, this reflection draws on his scholarship and also on his teaching and work to build vibrant communities of commitment, service, and scholarship at the intersection of religion, law, and professional life. Working with the text of the Beatitudes from the Gospel of Matthew, the essay highlights the value of how Bob Cochran has aimed not only to “do good,” but also to “be good” in a world and in a profession where it seems increasingly difficult to do so. His legacy offers a powerful inspiration ...

Mindsets In Legal Education, Victor D. Quintanilla, Sam Erman Jan 2020

Mindsets In Legal Education, Victor D. Quintanilla, Sam Erman

Articles by Maurer Faculty

If you teach 1Ls, you may share the following concern. At the start of each year, we meet enthusiastic and successful students who are passionate about law. They arrive on campus invested in learning, ready to work hard, and eager to participate in class. But trouble brews soon thereafter. Students worry whether they have what it takes to do well, whether they will fit in, and whether they belong in law school. Answering questions in class, many sense (rightly or wrongly) that their professors and peers think that they aren’t smart and that they will not do well. When ...


A Starting Point For Disability Justice In Legal Education, Christina Payne-Tsoupros Jan 2020

A Starting Point For Disability Justice In Legal Education, Christina Payne-Tsoupros

Journal Articles

This article explores how a disability justice framework would provide greater access to law school and therefore the legal profession for disabled students of color; specifically, disabled Black, Indigenous, and Latinx students. Using DisCrit principles formulated by Subini Annamma, David Connor, and Beth Ferri (2013), this article provides suggestions for incorporating a disability justice lens to legal education. In doing so, this article specifically recognizes the work of three disability justice activist-attorney-scholars, Lydia X.Z. Brown, Talila “TL” Lewis, and Katherine Pérez, and considers lessons from their advocacy and leadership that can apply in the law school setting.
