Speaking Engagements

Arts and Legal Reasoning

ASLCH 16th Annual Conference in London
03.22.13

Gardere Partner Randy D. Gordon is set to chair the Arts and Legal Reasoning Panel on March 22 at the School of Law, Birkbeck, University of London. Based on four papers (including Mr. Gordon's paper, "Law-as-Performance"), the panel will examine legal reasoning from a variety of perspectives that are not rooted in traditional syllogistic formulas.

"There is probably little dispute that both legal education and legal practice are tethered tightly to text-based procedures," said Mr. Gordon. "Accordingly, law students and lawyers are taught to learn and understand general rules and principles and apply them to pre-manufactured factual scenarios. Our program does not wish to suggest that non-textual resources should replace textual ones. Rather, it will suggest that a considered reflection on non-textual resources can open new avenues for developing knowledge amongst law students and legal professionals."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
