What do lawyers think about law journal article selection processes? We reached out to writers who have used Scholastica to address legal insights to find out. Legal writing is mandatory to obtain and maintain employment, both as a non-clinical and clinical lawyer. For more detailed advice on academic legal writing and advice on other aspects of scholarship activity, read Academic Legal Writing by Eugene Volokh. As last year, lawyers write about topics related to current topics and events. This blog post highlights a small selection of the many current and thought-provoking law review articles published in 2022. Parallel and intertwined with environmental and social justice issues is the rise of artificial intelligence and its many known and unintended consequences. Lawyers are breaking new ground in the ethics of using AI, as in “How do I know if my algorithm was reasonable?” In the Michigan Technology Law Review article, Karni A. Chagal-Feferkorn, a fellow and professor of law at the Haifa Center for Law & Technology and a Scotiabank postdoctoral fellow at the University of Ottawa`s AI+ Society initiative and the University of Ottawa`s Centre for Law, Technology and Society, examines the standards of neglect for self-learning algorithms. What makes a great experience when filing law reviews? Scholastica invites lawyers to share success stories about submitting success stories highlighting the law journals they have worked with, who have had superior article selection processes, and the best practices they have followed. In this section, we highlight periodicals that contain both background or background articles as well as recent scientific articles. These publications provide valuable resources for researchers at every stage of a writing project and with any level of experience.

Leora Eisenstadt, assistant professor of law at Temple University, discusses her research on flaws in how the legal system deals with cases of assault and harassment that leave many victims oppressed by the pursuit of justice, and ways to make reforms. The main objective of the Journal of Legal Education is to promote a rich exchange of ideas and information on legal education and related issues, including advocacy, legal theory, and jurisprudence. The Law Library Journal is the official publication of the American Association of Law Librarians and publishes articles on law, legal research, and legal documents. As 2022 draws to a close, it`s time to catch up with the latest lawyers published this year – and there`s no shortage of content! For up-to-date information on specific topics related to legal communications research and writing, these resources are also helpful. Shortly after his accession to the throne, Emperor Justinian (reigned 527-565) ordered a complete revision of Roman law. He appointed an imperial commission which, after two years, produced this book (the literal meaning of the Latin word “codex”) as well as several other summaries of Roman law. Originally written in Latin (the imperial language), it was translated into Greek (the language of the Eastern Empire) as basilikē (“royal”) in the ninth century AD. Surprisingly, it was not translated into English until 1932. The book is of historical interest not only because the national legal systems developed at the time of the founding of modern European nation-states were all based on Roman law. A three-volume multilingual set was published in 2016.

With so much to cover, ask yourself what topics the lawyers have focused on? 2021 was another turbulent year – with plenty for lawyers to unpack. This classic novel is written from the perspective of a Midwestern student entering Harvard Law School, where he follows his experiences — through turbulent times and through many ups and downs — until graduation. By turns sweetly funny, lush romantic, and strongly satirical, the book depicts law professors, deans, and other students in all their individual eccentricity and flawed humanity. The novel, which was successfully shot with the same name in 1973, is loved by generations of American lawyers and beyond. A fortieth anniversary edition was published in 2012. Read these guidelines, along with sample university programs and resumes, to learn how to prepare for your law scholarship. 2021 was marked by some of the most massive climate disasters in human history, including catastrophic floods in Germany and China, an unprecedented heat wave in the Pacific Northwest, and a devastating drought in the western United States that signals environmental crises that are impacting water and food supplies more quickly. In what the UN has declared the “Decade of Action”, it is clear that time is running out to reverse the effects of climate change.

In this context, lawyers have laid the foundations for ecological human rights. In addition to analyzing data protection rights in relation to companies, academics have written about various other aspects of corporate law and regulation in 2022. Sure, business law journals have covered these issues, but one of the notable goals we`ve seen this year has been antitrust reform. For example, in “Time for a New Sherman Act? The Debate on Antitrust Reform in Historical Perspective,” published by Columbia Business Law Review, William H. Rooney, partner in Willkie`s litigation department and co-chair of the Antitrust and Competition practice, and Timothy G. Fleming, partner at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, discussed antitrust law. The article argues that the U.S. is approaching a tipping point where new antitrust laws can prevail in Big Tech. The Journal of Clinical Law is devoted to articles dealing with lawyer`s theory and clinical legal education. Growing calls for police reform and reduced police funding in order to reallocate resources to other government agencies have been areas of focus in the legal literature.

In “Investing in Alternatives: Three Logics of Criminal System Replacement,” published in UC Irvine Law Review Monica C. Bell, associate professor of law and sociology at Yale Law School, Katherine Beckett, S. Frank Miyamoto professor of sociology at the University of Washington, and Forrest Stuart, associate professor of sociology at Stanford University, are considering defunding options. The article argues that investments in welfare, safety production, and racial reparation could help make decisions about the redistribution of police resources. Legal studies cover much of the above, but tend to focus more on the different ways in which legal institutions interact with other social institutions and with different categories of citizens subject to their jurisdiction. In essence, the study of law is less philosophical and less oriented towards the practice of law, but a sociological and political content. Contribute to the scientific literature by saying something original, interesting and at least probably accurate. There is no single answer to what makes a good law article, but it helps to have an original idea that you can describe in persuasive prose. Some of the best articles argue for counterintuitive conclusions because ideas that are counterintuitive are more likely to be original than ideas that fit most people`s intuitions. (Of course, many counterintuitive ideas are simply wrong, for example, “Repeatedly bumping into your eye with a sharp stick improves your eyesight.”) Absolute claims are generally indefensible (e.g., “Since the process by which reconstruction changes were not in accordance with Article V of the Constitution, the courts should treat them as illegal.”). They will often be able to offer a watered-down but nonetheless interesting version of such a statement (e.g., “Conventional reports of constitutional amendments do not adequately explain how extra-legal amendments can become law.

This article offers a new explanation. »). This book is another part of a prestigious series of anthologies of legal commentaries on historically important civil cases in the English common law tradition – in this case, tort liability.
