Antiracism, Reflection, And Professional Identity, Andrew King-Ries, Monte Mills, Eduardo R.C. Capulong 2021 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Antiracism, Reflection, And Professional Identity, Andrew King-Ries, Monte Mills, Eduardo R.C. Capulong

Faculty Law Review Articles

Intent on more systematically developing the emerging professional identities of law students, the professional identity formation movement is recasting how we think about legal education. Notably, however, the movement overlooks the structural racism imbedded in American law and legal education. While current models of professional development value diversity and cross-cultural competence, they do not adequately prepare the next generation of legal professionals to engage in the sustained work of interrupting and overthrowing race and racism in the legal profession and system. This article argues that antiracism is essential to the profession’s responsibility to serve justice and therefore key to ...

Forgotten But Not Forgiven: Remedies For Student Loan Debtors In Public Service, Andrew Goring 2020 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Forgotten But Not Forgiven: Remedies For Student Loan Debtors In Public Service, Andrew Goring

Florida Law Review

This Note identifies a timely issue with student loans and discusses potential remedies. Under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, borrowers of federal student loans who make 120 qualifying monthly payments while working in public service may have their loans forgiven. When a loan is forgiven, the borrower no longer has to pay the remaining balance of the debt. Since both the prevalence of student loans and the average student debt are increasing, loan forgiveness is an important opportunity for borrowers under the crushing debt of student loans. However, a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau report found a rising problem: Loan ...


The Appearance Of Professionalism, Elizabeth B. Cooper 2020 University of Florida Levin College of Law

The Appearance Of Professionalism, Elizabeth B. Cooper

Florida Law Review

The dominant image of a lawyer persists: a neatly dressed man wearing a conservative dark suit, white shirt, and muted accessories. Many attorneys can conform to this expectation, but there are a growing number of “outsider” lawyers for whom compliance with appearance norms can challenge their fundamental identities. People of color, women, LGBTQ individuals, religiously observant persons, and those who inhabit intersectional identities are among those who disproportionately remain excluded from the dominant culture and centers of power in the legal profession.

Expectations of appearance conformity create profound concerns that go well beyond style preferences, raising questions of autonomy and ...

The Tyranny Of Their Mirrors: Social Backgrounds And Variations In Conservative Judicial Philosophies, Andrew Millman 2020 Fordham University

The Tyranny Of Their Mirrors: Social Backgrounds And Variations In Conservative Judicial Philosophies, Andrew Millman

Fordham Undergraduate Law Review

This Article seeks to examine and compare the judicial behaviors of the five conservative justices on the Supreme Court, especially John Roberts and Neil Gorsuch, through the lens of their social backgrounds and opinion-writing and -joining patterns. The research for this Article focused on the frequency with which all nine justices on the high court joined each other’s opinions and were joined by each other justice, as well as a control group of three earlier Supreme Court terms for comparison. This is the best indicator of whether justices are in alignment on a case, not just on the outcome ...

Enough Is As Good As A Feast, Noah C. Chauvin 2020 Seattle University School of Law

Enough Is As Good As A Feast, Noah C. Chauvin

Seattle University Law Review

Ipse Dixit, the podcast on legal scholarship, provides a valuable service to the legal community and particularly to the legal academy. The podcast’s hosts skillfully interview guests about their legal and law-related scholarship, helping those guests communicate their ideas clearly and concisely. In this review essay, I argue that Ipse Dixit has made a major contribution to legal scholarship by demonstrating in its interview episodes that law review articles are neither the only nor the best way of communicating scholarly ideas. This contribution should be considered “scholarship,” because one of the primary goals of scholarship is to communicate new ...
