The high citadel : the influence of Harvard Law School by Joel Seligman( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Harvard Law School, a modern critique, and a proposed new model for American legal education are covered in this book by a Harvard Law graduate. Harvard Law School is called the "high citadel" of American legal education. Its admissions procedures, faculty selection, curriculum, teaching methods, and placement practices have served as a model for the education of lawyers in the United States. Faculty and graduates of the school have also been politically influential. Drawing from hundreds of interviews with Harvard Law students and faculty, the growing doubts concerning the school's admissions and hiring policies, intense competition, teaching methods, and affinity with private law practice rather than public service are explored. The overriding concern is that the nation's law schools should encourage the democratic ideal of equal legal representation. A new model based on this ideal is proposed. In addition to interviews, data and opinions were developed from written sources, including the dean's reports, faculty reports, the school's newspaper and magazine, and secondary sources concerning legal education. The study was supported by Ralph Nader. Notes on sources are included. (Sw)
Beyond a reasonable doubt by Lynne Bernabei( )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This phrase--"beyond a reasonable doubt". Heard countless times every day in American courtrooms the country, sets forth the burden of proof placed upon the prosecution in a criminal trial. Yet this cherished principle is not mentioned in the Constitution, nor is it defined by any laws. What, then, does "beyond a reasonable doubt" really mean, and how should it be interpreted and applied? In Beyond a reasonable doubt more than 80 distinguished contributors reflect on what this standard really means and how it is applied ... Brilliantly dissecting its meaning from every angle, attorneys, judges, novelists, journalists, religious leaders and convicted felons shine a light on the most compelling standard in our legal system
