, The Law School Of The Future: How The Synergies Of Convergence Will Transform The Very Notion Of “Law Schools” During The 21st Century From “Places” To “Platforms”, Jeffrey A. Van Detta

Jeffrey A. Van Detta

This article discusses the disruptive change in American (and trans-national) legal education that the convergence of technology and economics is bringing to legal education. It posits, and then defends, the following assertion about "law schools of the future":

“Law schools will no longer be ‘places’ in the sense of a single faculty located on a physical campus. In the future, law schools will consist of an array of technologies and instructional techniques brought to bear, in convergence, on particular educational needs and problems.”

This paper elaborates on that prediction, discussing the ways in which technology will positively impact legal education ...


The Right To Read, Lea Shaver Feb 2015

The Right To Read, Lea Shaver

Lea Shaver

Reading – for education and for pleasure – may be framed as a personal indulgence, a moral virtue, or even a civic duty. What are the implications of framing reading as a human right?

Although novel, the rights-based frame finds strong support in international human rights law. The right to read need not be defended as a “new” human right. Rather, it can be located at the intersection of more familiar guarantees. Well-established rights to education, science, culture, and freedom of expression, among others, provide the necessary normative support for recognizing a universal right to read as already implicit in international law ...

Abstract

This article critically examines publicity rights doctrine as applied to celebrity political figures. It is particularly concerned with the prominence of science fictional concepts, theoretical frameworks and tropes in cases that mark the extreme scope of the doctrine and in the scholarship that aims to render case law rationally meaningful.

Part one of the article briefly describes the right of publicity and ...


Ownership Is Nine-Tenths Of Possession: How Disparate Conceptions Of Ownership Influence Possession Doctrines, Martin Hirschprung Feb 2013

Ownership Is Nine-Tenths Of Possession: How Disparate Conceptions Of Ownership Influence Possession Doctrines, Martin Hirschprung

martin hirschprung

Possession is nine-tenths of ownership. And yet, the concept of possession remains woefully unclear in the law, thereby rendering the very idea of ownership too somewhat murky. This Article argues that there exists a reflexive relationship between possession and ownership, and that one’s understanding of ownership and its incidents influence the very concept of possession, rather than vice-versa. The Article further argues that given this reality, the application of the concept of stewardship to question of possession can aid significantly in resolving some of the most important contemporary disputes regarding possession and ownership in society, such as disputes between ...
