Some Humans And Others On Legal Perplexities

Plenty of good stuff out there, here are a few recommendations: Justice Bedsworth's column about tropical career paths and, somewhat obliquely, Newport Beach, CA. This piece by Allyce Bess in Red Herring regarding the Intel v. Hamidi case and the trespass to chattels doctrine. Howard Bashman's September column on privately funded judicial educational junkets: "The concern whether substantially underpaid federal judges might improperly try to curry favor with interest groups that can regularly offer those judges expense-free travel to exotic locations is more significant. The solution, though, is not to ban privately-sponsored seminars or to require that the curriculum lack any relevant point of view." (Sign up to receive Howard's column via email here.) Professor Bernard Hibbitts of JURIST has an informative piece in the current issue of the National Law Journal's Litigator's Toolbox. (Aptly enough, this publication is all about technology but is not available online; see if your library has a copy.) The article is called Innovative Instruction: Law school courses focus on the technology of law. Among other things it discusses Professor Hibbitts' course on "Neteracy For Lawyers," at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, which has students creating Web sites (a blog or two, perhaps?), and his colleague Professor Ashley's course on Artificial Intelligence And The Law -- read the outline, they mean it (any of this ring a bell?).
