Joseph’s Work Praised in Law & Literature

An article on Professor Lawrence Joseph’s work, “The Substance of Poetic Procedure: Law & Humanity in the Work of Lawrence Joseph, Law & Literature,” by Frank Pasquale, Professor of Law at the University of Maryland, has been published in Law & Literature (Vol. 32, 1-46) .

Professor Pasquale concludes his article: “Joseph’s work is . . . a miraculously humane document mapping the predicaments of an age when dystopian nonfiction outstrips the imaginings of diehard pessimists. Joseph inspires us to try to preserve love, beauty, and justice against the depredations of capital and violence, while squarely acknowledging how challenging that task will be. His oeuvre ascends from the temporal to the spiritual, while remaining grounded in the deepest tensions and tragedies of our time. Joseph’s poems structure a sensibility: that as post-, anti-, pre-, in-, and transhumanism threaten and beckon, law, literature and humanity stand (and fall) together, grounding us in the greatness and limits of language and embodiment.”

In addition, Professor Greenberg and Noam Ebner published, by invitation, a blog post titled, “How Much Justice Can You Afford” on the Duke Finreg Blog.
Here is the abstract for professor Greenberg’s article:
We are currently witnessing a revolution in access to justice and a parallel revolution in justice delivery, design and experience. As dispute resolution design scholars tell us, the implementation of any new dispute intervention plan in a system should involve all of its stakeholders from the beginning. In our justice system there are three primary stakeholders, who have been traditionally involved in processes of innovation and change: the courts, the parties and the lawyers. Courts and parties have been involved in the development of online dispute resolution (ODR). However, one significant justice stakeholder, the legal profession, has been relatively absent from the table thus far – whether by lack of awareness, by lack of will or innovative spirit or by lack of invitation: lawyers.
