Resources for Legal Educators

The Holloran Center's mission is to help the next generation form professional identities with a moral core of service to and responsibility for others. One way we hope to accomplish this is by providing the scholarship and research to ground and inform teaching and learning practices. Our objectives within this section are twofold: One, to provide usable knowledge for law school educators searching for insights and ideas on the teaching and learning professionalism or professional formation in the law school classroom, and two, to provide information for administrators, managers, or researchers searching for approaches on measurement approaches in evaluating the effectiveness of law school programs or courses. To this end, we have cultivated a variety of resources to be used in the professions.


Professor Neil Hamilton, Director of the Holloran Center, has developed a ground-breaking template for law students to use throughout all three years of law school to be fully prepared to find employmnet upon gradutaion. His Roadmap: The Law Student's Guide to Preparing and Implementing a Successful Plan for Meaningful Employment is already in use at several law schools, with spectacular results -- both increased employmnet rates and elevated student understanding of the student's role and path in obtaining employment.
