Phoenix, AZ, November 25, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Phoenix School of Law’s progressive law journal, Phoenix Law Review, is proud to announce the publication of its Volume III: Legal Education Issue. Phoenix Law Review took numerous risks to create a book that should spark the debate in the legal education evolution. The journal features “perspective” articles by legal practitioners, insights from current faculty, and the works of some of their brightest students. According to Managing Editor, J.T. Green, “the Legal Education Issue has evolved into a non-traditional book, shaped by non-traditional students.” The Board and staff editors didn’t stray too far, though. The book also includes “some anchor articles, authors with beautiful pedigrees, and Phoenix Law Review’s first international author.”
The legal education debate was ignited by visiting law professor, Scott Taylor, who spoke to PhoenixLaw students last November. His speech sparked some interest and controversy, which ultimately led to the idea of creating this issue: A forum to discuss the ever-changing law student population, the necessary adjustments legal education must make in order to better accommodate those students, and the newest legal education models in practice today. By including both scholarly articles and perspective essays, Phoenix Law Review hopes to give insight into the values of teaching in law school, the virtues of scholarly writing, the classroom experiences of freshman professors, the best way to survive scrutiny in class, the teaching methods offered on the other side of the globe, the idea of the Socratic method, the experiences involved in externships, and ultimately, the future of legal education.
An invitation to join Phoenix Law Review is an honor and a privilege. Students are selected based on an elite class ranking or by succeeding in a write-on competition. Those students put in countless hours and shed some “blood, sweat, and tears” to build a solid foundation for this out-of-the-ordinary journal. The successful publication of Phoenix Law Review’s Volume III: Legal Education Book is sure to be celebrated by all.
