Connecting Prospective Law Students' Goals To The Competencies That Clients And Legal Employers Need To Achieve More Competent Graduates And Stronger Applicant Pools And Employment Outcomes, Neil W. Hamilton 2019 University of St Thomas School of Law

Connecting Prospective Law Students' Goals To The Competencies That Clients And Legal Employers Need To Achieve More Competent Graduates And Stronger Applicant Pools And Employment Outcomes, Neil W. Hamilton

St. Mary's Journal on Legal Malpractice & Ethics

The author’s chapters in the 2018 professional responsibility hornbook, Legal Ethics, Professional Responsibility, and the Legal Profession, discuss the new data available to help law faculties and students understand the competencies that clients and legal employers want. The foundation for many of these competencies—like ownership over continuous professional development and the relational competencies with clients and teams—is the student’s professional identity or moral core. But students need help to understand these connections.

We have seen some very useful new data over the last few months that will help build bridges among the three major stakeholders in ...

Satisfaction With Law School Among Graduates Of The University Of Michigan Law School, Classes Of 1952-2001, David L. Chambers

Bibliography of Research Using UMLS Alumni Survey Data

The following memorandum is one of a group of memoranda Chambers wrote in 2009 and 2010 – after the survey project was suspended but before its revival – on a range of topics that the initial forty years of data permit exploring. Some of the memoranda evolved into publications. The memo here did not. Thus, the accuracy of the tables and other statistical figures in this memo have not been double-checked as they would have been if formally published. To verify the claims here and for access to additional data from years after the Project was revived, qualified researchers may apply for ...

The University Of Michigan Law School Alumni Survey Project: Description, Scope And Limits, David L. Chambers 2019 University of Michigan Law School

The University Of Michigan Law School Alumni Survey Project: Description, Scope And Limits, David L. Chambers

Bibliography of Research Using UMLS Alumni Survey Data

Sometime in the fall of 1965, Blyth Stason, then dean of the University of Michigan Law School, approved a proposal from Richard Wellman, then a young professor, to survey the graduates of the class of 1951 about their careers “in order to test the utility of comprehensive information about graduates.” He picked the class of 1951 because it would soon be observing its fifteen reunion and because, as he put it in a later report, “fifteen years after graduation was long enough for careers to be well settled, and yet not so long as to make its members unresponsive to ...


The Effects Of Educational Debts On Career Choices Of Graduates Of The University Of Michigan Law School, David L. Chambers 2019 University of Michigan Law School

The Effects Of Educational Debts On Career Choices Of Graduates Of The University Of Michigan Law School, David L. Chambers

Bibliography of Research Using UMLS Alumni Survey Data

The paper that follows, originally prepared in 2009 as the draft of an article, builds on data gathered in the annual survey about graduates’ educational debts from attending law school as well as about their career aspirations when they started and finished law school and the job decisions they made at various points in their careers. Like many others, I had been concerned about the possible effects of growing debt on the willingness of law students to work in settings such as government or “public interest” jobs (what I call “public service”) where starting salaries lag behind those in law ...

Turning Points In The History Of St. Mary’S University School Of Law (1980–1988), Vincent R. Johnson 2019 St. Mary's University School of Law

Turning Points In The History Of St. Mary’S University School Of Law (1980–1988), Vincent R. Johnson

St. Mary's Law Journal

St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas has existed for nearly a century. Thus far, there have been seven important written histories of St. Mary’s University School of Law, but no one has yet attempted to write a comprehensive history of the law school, nor have any members of the faculty published autobiographies. Having taught law at St. Mary’s since 1982, Professor of Law Vincent R. Johnson shares his first-hand account about the life of the law school during most of the 1980s (specifically 1980 to 1988). That period encompasses the bulk of the ...

Blogs And The Legal Academy, Orin S. Kerr 2019 George Washington University

Blogs And The Legal Academy, Orin S. Kerr

Orin Kerr

This paper's focus is on today’s technology and ask whether blogs as we know them today are conducive to advancing scholarship. This paper's conclusion is that relative to other forms of communication, blogs do not provide a particularly good platform for advancing serious legal scholarship. The blog format focuses reader attention on recent thoughts rather than deep ones. The tyranny of reverse chronological order limits the scholarly usefulness of blogs by leading the reader to the latest instead of the best.

This doesn’t mean that blogs can’t advance scholarship. The impact of any blog depends ...
