Ashley Ahlbrand's contribution to this volume is "Capturing Impact: Telling the Story of Your Scholarship Beyond the Citation Count."
When we conduct research, what is our end goal? Who is our audience? Since the mid-20th century, with the development, first, of journal citation indexes, then journal impact factors, then journal citation metrics for individuals, academia has seen increased pressure to publish and be cited in journals within one 's discipline. These citation metrics are used to compare schools and to evaluate scholars for promotion and tenure, for grant consideration, and for bestowing other awards and honors. Discipline-specific journal citations tend to be the easiest to measure, looking to a major scholarship database, such as Web of Science or HeinOnline. Yet as critics of these measures have shown, they are woefully incomplete. To set high stakes on such an inaccurate number and call it "scholarly impact" stands to devalue all the other forms that scholarship can take. This article seeks to address that misvaluation, first by surveying the history and reasoning behind these citation counts; then examining the varied forms and formats scholarship can take; and ending with a discussion of other measures, tools, and strategies for painting a more holistic picture of scholarly impact.

This handbook illustrates how education scholars employ Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a framework to bring attention to issues of race and racism in education. It is the first authoritative reference work to provide a truly comprehensive description and analysis of the topic, from the defining conceptual principles of CRT in Law that gave shape to its radical underpinnings to the political and social implications of the field today. It is divided into six sections, covering innovations in educational research, policy and practice in both schools and in higher education, and the increasing interdisciplinary nature of critical race research. New chapters broaden the scope of theoretical lenses to include LatCrit, AsianCrit and Critical Race Feminism, as well as coverage of Discrit Studies, Research Methods, and other recent updates to the field. This handbook remains the definitive statement on the state of critical race theory in education and on its possibilities for the future.
Includes the chapter, co-authored by Maurer Professor Kevin Brown and Darrell D. Jackson, "The History and Conceptual Elements of Critical Race Theory" by Maurer Professor Kevin Brown.

Taking inspiration from Public Enemy's lead vocalist Chuck D - who once declared that 'rap is the CNN of young Black America' - this volume brings together leading legal commentators to make sense of some of the most pressing law and policy issues in the context of hip-hop music and the ongoing struggle for Black equality. Written to 'say it plain', this collection will be valuable not only to students and scholars of law, African-American studies, and hip-hop, but also to everyone who cares about creating a more just society.
Includes Maurer Professor Kevin Brown’s chapter, “What Ice Cube’s "Endangered Species" Meant for Four Generations of Black Males,” co-authored with Robert Pervine.
Daniel O. Conkle
This tightly reasoned book brings a measure of coherency to this controversial, fast-moving, and seemingly chaotic field of law. It begins by recounting the history of American religious liberty, from its Lockean origins to the First Amendment to the present day. The book goes on to identify a set of embedded and evolving constitutional values, values reflecting both individual rights and broader structural concerns. Drawing upon these values as explanatory tools, the book explores and evaluates the Supreme Court’s contemporary First Amendment doctrine under the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses, as well as its protection of religious speech under the Free Speech Clause. A separate chapter discusses other important sources of religious freedom, including the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.
Now in its second edition, the book provides comprehensive coverage of all of the major facets of the Supreme Court’s decision-making, including important developments since the first edition was published. It provides selective coverage of lower court decisions as well, and it includes references to leading academic works. In its concluding chapter, the book highlights ongoing developments in the American religious landscape and explains how they might affect the future of religious liberty in the United States.
Offering clear exposition combined with sophisticated analysis, this book will be of value not only to students but also to scholars, lawyers, and judges.
A volume in the Concepts and Insights series. Predecessors of the book were published in 2003 and 2009 as Constitutional Law: The Religion Clauses.
"Should Supreme Court Justices Fear Access to Their Papers? An Empirical Study of the Use of Three Archival Collections"

Susan deMaine's contribution to this volume is "Should Supreme Court Justices Fear Access to Their Papers? An Empirical Study of the Use of Three Archival Collections." Co-authored by Benjamin J. Keele.
US. Supreme Court justices typically donate their working papers to archives upon their retirement, often with lengthy embargoes. 1 Researchers have debated whether the justices should be required to retain and disclose their papers as government · records, but there has been little study of how the papers are used in scholarly and journalistic discussions of the Court.· This empirical study examines how the papers of Justices William Brennan, Thurgood Marshall, and Harry Blackmun are used via citations in books and academic law journal articles. We find that most citations to the papers support discussions of the justices' views on the law along with deliberations and negotiations when deciding cases, precisely the kinds of uses that show the value of transparency. To address constitutional objections to mandated disclosures, we propose an incentive grant program that benefits the archives receiving justices' collections. This program would encourage justices to donate their papers with relatively short embargoes, ideally fifteen years after retirement from the Court.

Margaret Kiel-Morse's contribution to this volume is "Exploring Citation Count Methods of Measuring Faculty Scholarly Impact."
After US News & World Report's announcement in 2019 that they will provide a separate ranking of law schools based on faculty scholarly impact, scrutinizing the various methods of assessing scholarly impact has been a hot topic. The various methods include reputation surveys, citation counts, and publication counts. This paper focuses on citation counts. Several methods of conducting citation counts have been circulated since the 1990s, notably Brian Leiter 's studies using Westlaw 's Law Reviews and Journals database; the Leiter study updates conducted by Gregory Sisk, et al., in 2012, 2015, and 2018; Heald and Sichelman 's look at HeinOnline and SSRN in Ranking the Academic Impact of 100 American Law Schools; and Ruhl, Vandenbergh, and Dunaway's 2019 study using Web of Science in Total Scholarly Impact: Law Professor Citations in Non-Law Journals for interdisciplinary scholarly impact. Following the Ruhl study, faculty at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, with its strong record of interdisciplinary scholarship, were curious to learn Maurer 's overall scholarly impact. I reviewed existing studies of law faculty scholarly impact and then conducted a study of the interdisciplinary work of the Maurer Law faculty by duplicating the Ruhl citation count method of examining law faculty publications in non-law journals. The results illustrated that Maurer faculty are making a significant scholarly impact in interdisciplinary publications and that a true overall scholarly impact score for a law school's faculty must include some measure of interdisciplinary work This article reviews a sample of the literature on measuring scholarly impact, describes the citation count method and related issues explored at Maurer, and discusses the benefits and limitations of including interdisciplinary scholarship in evaluating law faculty scholarly impact.

Contemporary warfare yields a profound impact on the rights to privacy and data protection. Technological advances in the fields of electronic surveillance, predictive algorithms, big data analytics, user-generated evidence, artificial intelligence, cloud storage, facial recognition, and cryptography are redefining the scope, nature, and contours of military operations. Yet, international humanitarian law offers very few, if any, lex specialis rules for the lawful processing, analysis, dissemination, and retention of personal information. This edited anthology offers a pioneering account of the current and potential future application of digital rights in armed conflict.
In Part I Mary Ellen O’Connell, Tal Mimran and Yuval Shany, Laurie Blank and Eric Talbot Jensen, Jacqueline Van De Velde, Omar Yousef Shehabi and Emily Crawford explore how various IHL regimes, ranging from the rules regarding the protection of property to these regulating the treatment of POWs, protect the rights to digital privacy and data protection.
Part II, which contains contributions by Leah West, Eliza Watt and Tara Davenport, and concentrates on the extent to which specific technological tools and solutions, such as facial recognition, drone surveillance and underwater cables.
Part III of this collection examines the obligations of militaries and humanitarian organizations when it comes to the protection of digital rights. Tim Cochrane focuses on military data subject access rights, Deborah Housen-Couriel explores data protection in multinational military operations, and Asaf Lubin expounds the role of ICRC as a data controller in the context of humanitarian action.
In Part IV Kristina Hellwig, Yaël Ronen and Amir Cahane focus on digital rights in the post bellum phase. This part takes a closer look at the role of the right to privacy in the investigation and prosecution of international crimes, the ‘right to be forgotten’ in cases concerning information about international crimes and the protection of the digital identities of individuals caught up in humanitarian disasters.

Shines a light on the ways in which civil procedure may privilege—or silence—voices in our justice system
In today’s increasingly hostile political and cultural climate, law schools throughout the country are urgently seeking effective tools to address embedded inequality in the United States legal system. A Guide to Civil Procedure aims to serve as one such tool by centering questions of systemic injustice in the teaching, learning, and practice of civil procedure.
Featuring an outstanding group of diverse scholars, the contributors illustrate how law school curriculums often ignore issues such as race, gender, disability, class, immigration status, and sexual orientation. Too often, students view the #MeToo movement, Black Lives Matter, immigration/citizenship controversy, or LGBTQ+ issues as mere footnotes to their legal education, often leading to the marginalization of many students and the production of graduates that do not view issues of systemic injustice as central to their profession.
A Guide to Civil Procedure reveals how procedure is, and always has been, a central pressure point in the struggle to eradicate structural inequality and oppression through the courts. This book will give students and scholars alike a more complex view of their roles as attorneys, sharpen their litigation skills, and provide a stronger sense of community and purpose in the law school classroom.
Includes the chapter "Doorways of Discretion: Psychological Science and the Legal Construction and Erasure of Racism" by Maurer Professor Victor D. Quintanilla.

Adopters will have access to a teacher's manual, simulation case files, and other teaching resources.
Sex work occupies a legally gray space in Johannesburg, South Africa, and police attitudes towards it are inconsistent and largely unregulated. As I. India Thusi argues in Policing Bodies, this results in both room for negotiation that can benefit sex workers and also extreme precarity in which the security police officers provide can be offered and taken away at a moment's notice. Sex work straddles the line between formal and informal. Attitudes about beauty and subjective value are manifest in formal tasks, including police activities, which are often conducted in a seemingly ad hoc manner. However, high-level organizational directives intended to regulate police obligations and duties toward sex workers also influence police action and tilt the exercise of discretion to the formal. In this liminal space, this book considers how sex work is policed and how it should be policed. Challenging discourses about sexuality and gender that inform its regulation, Thusi exposes the limitations of dominant feminist arguments regarding the legal treatment of sex work. This in-depth, historically informed ethnography illustrates the tension between enforcing a country's laws and protecting citizens' human rights.
