What One Lawyer Can Do For Society: Lessons From The Remarkable Career Of William P. Homans, Jr., Mark S. Brodin 2011 Boston College Law School

What One Lawyer Can Do For Society: Lessons From The Remarkable Career Of William P. Homans, Jr., Mark S. Brodin

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

William P. Homans Jr. was an iconic civil liberties and criminal defense lawyer who mentored generations of younger lawyers that followed in his path. He appeared in cases that defined his times, from representing targets of the McCarthy-era inquisitions of the 1950s, to defending publishers of books like Tropic of Cancer when the authorities sought to suppress them, to serving on the defense team in the conspiracy trial of internationally-renowned pediatrician Benjamin Spock and four other leaders of the anti-Vietnam-War movement, to defending a doctor charged with manslaughter arising from an abortion he performed soon after Roe v. Wade legalized ...

Craig Callen: Tributes From The Evidence Community, Richard D. Friedman

Articles

At the wonderful memorial service for Craig Callen held at MSU shortly after his death in April, I had the honor, by reason of proximity, to appear in effect as the representative of nationwide, and even worldwide, community of scholars that has felt his death very deeply. I am grateful for the opportunity to perform this same function in print.


Holmes And Dissent, Allen P. Mendenhall 2011 Huntingdon College; Faulkner University; Supreme Court of Alabama

Holmes And Dissent, Allen P. Mendenhall

Allen Mendenhall

Holmes saw the dissent as a mechanism to advance and preserve arguments and as a pageant for wordplay. Dissents, for Holmes, occupied an interstitial space between law and non-law. The thought and theory of pragmatism allowed him to recreate the dissent as a stage for performative text, a place where signs and syntax could mimic the environment of the particular time and place and in so doing become, or strive to become, law. Holmes’s dissents were sites of aesthetic adaptation. The language of his dissents was acrobatic. It acted and reacted and called attention to itself. The more provocative ...

Eric Stein, 1913-2011, Joseph Vining 2011 University of Michigan Law School

Eric Stein, 1913-2011, Joseph Vining

Michigan Journal of International Law

Eric kept all of us on the faculty from feeling our age. He was interested in us all to the very end. I am seventy-three, which I find hard to believe every time I think of it, but I always knew during our forty-two years of friendship and working together that I could have been Eric's son. As time has passed, a larger and larger number of the faculty could have been my sons and daughters and Eric's grandsons and granddaughters--certainly you can't be a grandchild without feeling young somewhere inside yourself.


Memory Of Eric Stein, Carl A. Valenstein 2011 University of Michigan Law School

Memory Of Eric Stein, Carl A. Valenstein

Michigan Journal of International Law

My memory of Eric Stein is of a teacher and mentor rather than a colleague. I will leave to others more qualified than I to describe his major contributions to the academic literature and teaching of European Community and public international law. When I entered Michigan Law School as a student in 1980, Eric had "technically" retired or at least transitioned to emeritus status. I say he had "technically" retired because his commitment to the law school community as a writer, teacher, and mentor to students never appeared to diminish. He still taught a number of classes and seminars, wrote ...


Scholarship As Contribution To World Peace, John H. Jackson 2011 University of Michigan Law School

Scholarship As Contribution To World Peace, John H. Jackson

Michigan Journal of International Law

Eric Stein was clearly one of the important legal scholars of our time. I enjoyed him as a colleague for more than three decades, and remained a friend afterward although we were separated by distance. Eric was truly dedicated to his scholarship, which was broadly concerned with international law and how it operates, but perhaps most significant to his legacy was his deep interest and personal involvement in the extraordinary beginnings and ongoing evolution of the European Union.


Tribute To Eric Stein, Bruno Simma 2011 University of Michigan Law School

Tribute To Eric Stein, Bruno Simma

Michigan Journal of International Law

My first encounter with Eric dates back forty years. In 1971 he taught a course at the Hague Academy of International Law. At that time, I was an assistant lecturer at the University of Innsbruck, had just submitted my Habilitationsschrift to the Law Faculty there, and, while waiting for my venia legendi to come forward, I wanted to spend a few weeks at what was-and probably still is-the most exciting place for young international law scholars to get together with hundreds of like-minded individuals and some of the most inspiring teachers worldwide. Eric certainly lived up to my expectation of ...


The Shrinking Back: The Law Of Biography, Mary Sarah Bilder 2011 Boston College Law School

The Shrinking Back: The Law Of Biography, Mary Sarah Bilder

Mary Sarah Bilder

The Article argues that quotations of copyrighted material used as "fact" should be protected. The Article explores the relation between the legal law of biography and the literary theory of biography, focusing specifically on the use of unpublished materials in written biographies. The Article surveys the assumptions underlying copyright, fair use, and privacy doctrines. The Article critiques fair use solutions suggested by legal commentary and congressional action and sketches a different analysis, not involving fair use. The "fact use" proposal would shift the burden from proving "fair use" to proving that the quotations were not used as "facts."

Introducing The Recorder's Women Leaders In The Law, Scott Graham 2011 Golden Gate University School of Law

Introducing The Recorder's Women Leaders In The Law, Scott Graham

Articles About Faculty

Today, The Recorder is honoring 20 women for helping blaze the trail in the profession decades ago. These living legends are firsts and founders — the first women partners at big law firms, the first (or second) women judges on their courts. Not surprisingly for women who were educated during the civil rights struggle and the Vietnam War, several have founded/and or piloted influential public interest organizations like Equal Rights Advocates, California Women Lawyers and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights in the Bay Area.

Viewpoint: Golden Gate Professor Susan Rutberg Remembers Bernie Segal, Susan Rutberg

Publications

Professor Bernard L. Segal, one of the world's great trial lawyers from the old school of silver-tongued orators, and a much beloved law professor, passed away Aug. 12. Bernie, as he was known by everyone he ever met, was my teacher, mentor, colleague and friend for nearly four decades. Although he faced increasingly difficult health problems in recent years, his death was unexpected, and I didn't get to see him before the end. I'm writing this because I didn't have the chance to say goodbye.

Thinking Like Thinkers: Is The Art And Discipline Of An "Attitude Of Suspended Conclusion" Lost On Lawyers?, Donald J. Kochan 2011 Chapman University School of Law

Thinking Like Thinkers: Is The Art And Discipline Of An "Attitude Of Suspended Conclusion" Lost On Lawyers?, Donald J. Kochan

Donald J. Kochan

In his 1910 book, How We Think, John Dewey proclaimed that “the most important factor in the training of good mental habits consists in acquainting the attitude of suspended conclusion. . .” This Article explores that insight and describes its meaning and significance in the enterprise of thinking generally and its importance in law school education specifically. It posits that the law would be best served if lawyers think like thinkers and adopt an attitude of suspended conclusion in their problem solving affairs. Only when conclusion is suspended is there space for the exploration of the subject at hand. The thinker must ...
