Bowen law professor’s article garners national attention

An article written by Josh Silverstein, professor at the William H. Bowen School of Law, is generating attention from national media.

“A Case for Grade Inflation in Legal Education,” forthcoming in the University of San Francisco Law Review, has garnered attention from legal and education scholars and mainstream media for its assertion that law schools should set their “good academic standing grade point average at the B- level.”

Since being uploaded to the Social Science Research Network, the article has been downloaded nearly 350 times.

It is among the top 10 downloads on the SSRN in the following categories: LSN: Legal Education (Topic), Journal of Legal Education eJournal, Law Educator: Courses, Materials & Teaching eJournal, Law & Society: The Legal Profession eJournal, Legal Theories, Policies & Practices, Law & Society, Philosophy of Law eJournal, Humanities Network, Philosophy Research Network, and Subject Matter eJournals.

Legal blogs and mainstream media have also taken notice, including the ABA Law Blog, MSN Now, and WSJ Law Blog.
