In my first year of teaching, I was shocked to come across what appeared to be plagiarism (material which seemed to have been copied verbatim from the Internet). Fortunately, I didn’t have to decide whether it was plagiarism or not, and I could handball it to the people who deal with that kind of thing. I don’t know what happened in the end. But if plagiarism was established, I had never thought about the implications for the student’s admission to practice. This case provides a salutory warning for any law students who have been found to have colluded or plagiarised in the course of university assessment. For ...

What Katy Did
Well, I doubt that it’s much of a secret. I know that many of my fellow bloggers know who I am. Indeed, I’m told that many worked it out easily, but were too polite to say so. After all, how many female academic lawyers are there in Melbourne who are simultaneously obsessed by property law, restitution and the Talmud? At least two of my former students guessed it! (*waves to former students*) So here I am, Katy Barnett, a.k.a. “Legal Eagle”: lawyer, blogger, mother, almost-Dr-Katy. Why have I chosen to come out now? The answer is threefold. First, there’s no real point in keeping one’s ... market research, surveys and trends » Unpalatable – defamatory restaurant reviews
I like food, and I can be critical (just like the guy in the cartoon on the left ‘The Food Critic Orders Dinner’ – click on it to see it full size in its original context); so what’s not to like? Well, a flurry of litigation in various jurisdictions over the last few months has made me reconsider. The most recent is the decision of the High Court of Australia in John Fairfax Publications Pty Ltd v Gacic [2007] HCA 28 (14 June 2007) (hat tips: Steve Hedley (off-blog) and the indefatigable Peter Black’s Freedom to Differ ) which is making news in Australia for its holding that a restuarant critic can ... market research, surveys and trends

University of Minnesota law professor David Stras questioned whether Congress has the constitutional authority to force the Supreme Court to allow cameras. He wrote: "[T]he Supreme Court stated as early as United States v. Hudson and Goodwin (the famous case that articulated the doctrine of legality in criminal law) that certain powers inhere in a court. The most recognizable of these powers are contempt, administration of the bar, and docket management. There are others, but a dominant theme emerges: the Court must be able to, in the words of Hudson, '[e]nforce the observance of order.'" It would not be a "huge ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

He was one of the Oberlin Mafia, the nickname we gave the succession of bright young reporters who found their way to Arkansas years ago looking for their first reporting jobs. Nice kids, all of them. And almost all of them would go on to successful careers. But, fresh out of Oberlin, some of them still exhibited a few of the ideological tics they’d acquired at that politically correct campus. And they couldn’t help but reveal them. Usually when politics was being discussed. As it regularly was. Even the nicest and best mannered of the bunch, which this young man was, would fall back on certain newspeak phrases when ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Huffington Post Provides Latest Anti-gene Patenting Soapbox
