Legal Education In The Us

Legal Education In The Us
There is no undergraduate law degree in the United States; thus, students cannot
expect to study law without first completing an undergraduate degree. Basic
admissions requirements for American law schools are a Bachelor's degree in any
field and the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). The American law degree is
called the Juris Doctor (JD) and usually requires three years of study. The JD
program involves courses in American common and statute law as well as
international and business law. Overseas students who are considering an
American JD should note that this program focuses on preparation for US legal
practice. Undergraduate Preparation for Law School

Women, Work And Public Policy

Women, Work And Public Policy
Gender and the market are both concepts that carry tremendous power to shape society. Indeed, these institutions are so powerful within society that they can seem invisible and immutable. Each of these influential constructs has become the lens through which a theoretical approach defines and analyzes the world: feminist theory centering on gender, and economic theory centering on the market. Such a primary focus enables each theory to function as an invaluable tool in clarifying complex interactions. On the flip side, however, such a lens can also obscure the ability to enlarge understanding beyond that initial analysis. In this way, the strength of focus can become a weakness, setting one analytical approach as exclusively paramount, and inherently discrediting other approaches. This has often been the case with the disparate economic and feminist approaches to analyzing work and gender.

Office Automation And Group Collaboration Software

Office Automation And Group Collaboration Software
Our group of three within Global Discovery Chemistry at a large Pharmaceutical Company was tasked with implementing a unique and innovative way in which high throughput parallel chemical synthesis could be performed by the traditional bench chemists. Building off the deployment of a new collaborative software system, the Electronic Notebook (ELN) by CambridgeSoft Corporation, our job was to identify a way to develop a back-end system which links the chemist?s notebook to automated synthesis in the Lab. The new Electronic Notebook was established in order to replace existing paper notebooks, making it possible for chemists across the globe to view and otherwise copy, duplicate, or build off experiments of others. The back end platform is custom developed within our group and links to the notebook, by a series of table views, to read inputs and fully automate the process in which parallel chemistry is performed in the Robotics Laboratory. This paper will discuss the collaborative ELN software, as well as the back end custom application for linking the chemist to the Laboratory Automation.

American Renaissance

American Renaissance
The American Renaissance period, circa 1876-1917, heralded a new sense of nationalism with a pride linking to a spirit akin to Greek democracy, the rule of Roman law, and a cultural and educational reform movement often referred to as Renaissance humanism. This American nationalism focused on the expression of modernism, technology, and academic classicism. Renaissance technological advancements include wire cables supporting the Brooklyn Bridge in the State of New York, along with cultural advancements found in the Prairie School houses, Beaux-Arts Institute of Design in architecture and sculpture. The political heir of American nationalism evolved with the Gilded Age and New Imperialism school of thought. The American Renaissance produced major influential literary works from some of the most brilliant minds in U.S. history, including Ralph Waldo Emerson's the "Representative Man (1850)", Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlett Letter (1850)" and "The House of Seven Gables (1851)," Herman Melville's "Moby-Dick," Henry David Thoreau's "Walden (1854)," and Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass (1855)."

Management vs Leadership

Management vs Leadership
Is there a difference between managers and leaders? To me, the answer is, Yes!. After researching articles about the differences between managers and leaders I concluded that my current work environment, which employs two principals, leans towards more managerial than leadership qualities. There is always the opportunity to become a manager, but becoming a leader takes a certain kind of higher learning and understanding in order to be practiced effectively

Is it Time to Change the Humanities Requirement?

Is it Time to Change the Humanities Requirement?
The University?s Humanities Core represents a vital though enigmatic aspect of the curricular philosophy. Considering that the Core seems so anomalous compared to the curricula of similar universities, it is interesting to note that the Humanities Core seems to have an especially distinguished significance. For example, humanities is the only sequence which is taken almost uniformly by first year students; it is also one of two or three Core sequences that cannot be replaced by AP credits or placement tests. Perhaps most importantly, the humanities requirement may be the only part of the Core that seems to be almost universally perceived as having no application outside of the Ivory Tower.
