Abstract: This paper proposes to find an acceptable midpoint between the efficiency of markets and the rhetoric of altruism and gift to craft a solution to the shortage of transplant kidneys for needy patients. The paper advocates educational scholarships for donors willing to make a live donation of one kidney. The scholarship program proposed stands to improve four key weaknesses found in the current system of organ allocation: the shortage of kidneys, the logistical limits of a system dependent upon deceased donation, and the racial imbalance in kidney allocation. The paper then explains how the rhetoric of educational scholarships fits within the preferred paradigm of altruism and gift, and dampens the coercive power of unrestricted markets for human organs. Finally, the paper fashions a means of defending the scholarship program within the strict prohibitions imposed on financial incentives by current organ donation law.

Abstract: In the early 1990’s, Judge Harry Edwards blasted legal scholarship as becoming largely unhelpful to judges and practitioners. Judge Edwards reminisced about an earlier time when more “practical” scholarship was published, and he chastised law professors for writing “abstract scholarship that has little relevance to concrete issues, or addresses concrete issues in a wholly theoretical manner.”

Perhaps inspired in part by criticisms like those leveled by Judge Edwards, legal scholars have tried to examine the relevance of legal scholarship to judges and practitioners using a variety of means. Confounding scholars’ efforts, however, is limited information concerning exactly how much legal scholarship is used by judges, which judges use it, and what factors encourage or discourage its use.

Using empirical techniques, this study seeks to contribute very basic information concerning how judges use legal scholarship. Drawing on a dataset including federal appellate decisions from 1950 until the present, this report first provides a comprehensive, up to date, descriptive account of the citation to legal scholarship by the circuit courts of appeals. Second, it develops evidence that explanatory factors such as judicial ideology, judicial workload, and the amount (and perhaps availability) of legal scholarship affect the likelihood that a court will cite legal scholarship. Finally, the report provides discussion of its findings.

Abstract: This paper discusses the book Taking Risks: Feminist Stories of Social Justice Research in the Americas. The book brings together interdisciplinary scholars and audiences in hopes of creating dialogues about scholarship/activist tensions experienced by feminists in the academy. We explore such tensions experienced in our attempts to decolonize the stories of social justice movements in the Americas. We look at underground libraries in Cuba, human rights and theater in Juarez, community media in Venezuela, collective self-built archives in Colombia, Indigenous feminist activism in Ecuador, sex work in Brazil, sex trafficking in the US, and exile activism in the Chilean diaspora.
