ABA Journal: Asked and Answered features top of the industry guests discussing various legal topics.

    Do federal jurors still care whether a witness is caught in a lie? Not as much, say 2 veteran litigators

    Do federal jurors still care whether a witness is caught in a lie? Not as much, say 2 veteran litigators

    Physical aspects aren’t the only changes in federal litigation, according to two veteran Chicago litigators. They think jurors, particularly those younger than age 40, are much more forgiving when a witness is caught lying, few care whether a party admits to drug use, and many expect significant documentation from law enforcement trying to defend misconduct charges.

    3 decades ago, legal headhunting required more time for fewer placements

    3 decades ago, legal headhunting required more time for fewer placements

    The heavy, hardback editions of Martindale-Hubbell law directories, which were published annually and had different volumes for each jurisdiction, represented an important tool for executive search consultants back in the 1980s, before internet access was common, and lawyers’ backgrounds could only be found through paper or word of mouth.

    When most of law school faculty were straight white men, how did those who were not bring change?

    When most of law school faculty were straight white men, how did those who were not bring change?

    In the late 1980s, law school groups for gay and lesbian students met off campus in case members didn’t want the school community to know their sexual orientation. And there were so few female faculty at law schools, if two or more were seen together talking, male faculty would ask what they were up to. So if they were actually up to something, such as persuading their dean to adopt a faculty parental leave policy that was longer than a few weeks, they would meet off campus, too.

    How has practicing in the Supreme Court changed throughout the years?

    How has practicing in the Supreme Court changed throughout the years?

    A few decades ago, there were no page limits for U.S. Supreme Court briefs, and that brought considerable headaches for the clerks who had to read them. Also, the justices rarely, if ever, asked more than 15 questions total during oral arguments. But that changed in 1986, after Antonin Scalia joined the high court.

    Following a viral video, Harvard Law School student finds ways to connect remotely

    Many Harvard Law School students knew of classmate Rehan Staton through a July 2020 video that went viral, which featured him opening a Harvard Law School acceptance email. There’s a lot more to him than the video, and Staton wanted to connect with classmates more significantly while they attended remote classes over the past year.
