PARADIGM SHIFT

“A fundamental change in an individual's or a society's view of how things work in the world.”

The way we think about legal education is changing and not just at the edges.  The crash of 2008, the collapse of law school applicants and the access to justice gap have inspired law schools to launch new programs to compete in this shifted world.  Incubators, Innovation Clinics, Hackathons, Distance Learning, Academic Success, Learning Outcomes, Education Analytics …. we are doing different things and doing things differently.  Almost all of these have a technology component too and so are relevant for this year’s conference.  What is your law school doing?  What should you be doing?  Come to CALIcon19 to share your plans and discuss the new shifted present tense of legal education.

Bailments

This lesson teaches about the law of bailments, i.e., the law that controls the rights and duties of a possessor of tangible personal property (goods) who is not the owner.

New eLangdell® Press ebook - Judicial Ethics and Conduct by Professor Steven Berenson from Thomas Jefferson School of Law

Judicial Ethics and Conduct provides materials that can be used in conjunction with a stand-alone one or two unit course on judicial ethics or can be used in whole or in part to provide the basis for a sub-unit on judicial ethics within a standard course on legal ethics or lawyer professional responsibility.

More specific subjects covered include:  Maintaining the Independence and Impartiality of the Judiciary; Performing the Duties of Judicial Office Impartially, Competently, and Diligently; Ex Parte Communications; Disqualification; and Extrajudicial Activities. A number of important U.S. Supreme Court decisions relating to judicial ethics are covered.
