Three articles recently posted to SSRN's Law & Soc'y: The Legal Prof'n journal (edited by Bill Henderson) are tangentially related but certainly on topic for this blog. One is from 2002 while in the midst of debates over truth, disclosure, and Enron [see also the recent take by Fred Zacharias on lawyering "truth" and lying to courts, as discussed at Legal Ethics Forum here and linked in full here]:
-- Steven H. Resnicoff (DePaul), "Lying and Lawyering: Contrasting American and Jewish Law."
Originally in Notre Dame Law Review, Vol. 77, No. 3, in 2002.
-- Eli Wald (Denver), "The Rise and Fall of the WASP and Jewish Law Firms." Forthcoming in Stanford Law Review.
-- Eli Wald (Denver), "The Rise of the Jewish Law Firm or is the Jewish Law Firm Generic?" Forthcoming in University of Missouri-Kansas City Law Review.
Other recent postings to SSRN: see also some explorations published in this SSRN journal on the idea of transnational legal education, and more on the "globalization of law firms" here and here. Finally, Placido Gomez, from Stetson, posted this provocative title, "White People Think Differently," a paper he published in 1991 on minority pass rates on bar exams.
