Professor Takes American Legal Education Methods to Jordan

In November, clinical professor Pat Costello traveled to Amman, Jordan, as part of the American Bar Association's Rule of Law Initiative. While there he consulted with law faculty members from eight Jordanian universities including the University of Jordan and Yarmouk University.

He assisted his Jordanian colleagues in developing a course on Legal Ethics and Professionalism, taught a class on Alternative Dispute Resolution, made a presentation on the development of moot court programs, and participated in a colloquium on interactive teaching techniques and practical skills training. In an after-action report to the ABA, Professor Costello noted that Jordanian legal education may be limited by gender issues, by lack of active involvement by the legal profession, and by the fact that law is an undergraduate field of study characterized by high student-to-teacher ratios (as is true in much of the world). Nonetheless, he reported that he was very cordially received and that his Jordanian hosts were genuinely interested in advancement and innovation in legal education.

Law Students Make Strong Showing in National Moot Court

Law students comprising the University of Idaho/Cooper & Larsen National Moot Court teams received high marks in the competition's regional round at Seattle. The team of Rose Duffy, Ryan Holdaway, and Kevin Griffiths (with faculty adviser Laurie O'Neal) advanced to the quarterfinal, winning each of their oral arguments along the way. In the quarterfinal round, they argued against a team with the best brief (their own brief was judged second-best in the region) and that narrow grading difference tipped the total score in favor of the other team. Mr. Holdaway earned third-best individual oralist honors in the competition. A companion team of Matt Schlestrate, Jessica Maxwell, and Tayah Renfro (with faculty adviser Deborah McIntosh) also made a strong impression. Their brief earned a grade only 7/10ths of a point behind that of their quarterfinalist colleagues. The University of Idaho's National Moot Court teams were supported (again) in 2008 by a generous gift to the College of Law from the firm of Cooper & Larsen in Pocatello.

Faculty Scholarship Reflects Broad Interests, High Productivity

During the most recent accreditation site visit by the American Bar Association and Association of American Law Schools, the evaluators commented favorably on the level of scholarly productivity achieved by a small law faculty that also delivers a wide curriculum and provides extensive service and outreach throughout Idaho as well as the nation. The evaluators' comments are reinforced by data recently compiled for a University of Idaho program prioritization exercise. Here, in e-mail plain text format, is a list of law faculty scholarship during JUST ONE YEAR (2008) (including works completed during that year with publication forthcoming in 2009):
