Professor Jennifer North

Professor at Charleston School of Law

Happy 4th of July! Today we celebrate the Declaration of Independence. 🇺🇸

Our freedoms are hard won, let’s not take them for granted. Power is not static, it creeps, patiently, surreptitiously, and often under disguise. Every so often it needs to be put in its place.

As Shakespeare recognized, in order for that to happen, first they must kill all the lawyers! But you know, lawyers stand for the rule of law, and we are the bulwark against those who wish to accumulate power for themselves.

Approach your calling to the law with righteousness and integrity, and our freedoms shall remain intact for future generations. They too will have to fight, but we will have done our job and paid it forward.

Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸

Texas A&M Law Mourns the Passing of Legal Legend Judge Joe Spurlock II

My contracts, Joe Spurlock, professor was a memorable man. He wore cowboy boots and a handlebar mustache. I was just talking about him the other day. I will always remember his influence on my legal education and how he prompted me to look beyond the textbook to understand the value of the rule of law. Texas A&M Law mourns the passing of “legal titan” Judge Joe Spurlock II, senior professor of law and director of the Asian Judicial Institute.

3 Things I Wish I’d Learned Sooner as an Introverted Leader

Something that a lot people don’t realize or automatically connect is that the vast majority of lawyers are introverts (Meyers-Briggs confirms). We see the flashy lawyers in courtroom dramas and naturally assume they are extroverts, and extravagant. But if you think about it, many of the skills lawyers need are the quiet skills of introspection, ability to self-edit, and to draw energy from inside.

Even so, the jobs lawyers are called to do in nearly every legal situation is to advocate in some way, and that requires leadership. This is a great little article in recognizing how to emphasize and use your introverted traits to empower yourself to be a great leader and advocate. I had a breakthrough when I realized that my level of extroversion was not correlated to my level of confidence or competence.

Here’s a fun legal diversion: talking about absurd laws. Some of these rules are pretty hilarious and makes you wonder what we are paying our lawmakers for. The video ends in a discussion about lawmaking power and where it should reside (no administration is immune from criticism either). Funny context, but serious ideas.

Law School

Just wanted to share this growth story with my students and CSOL alumni. This school in the video is my alma mater - it was Texas Wesleyan when I attended, and since becoming Texas A&M it has jumped ranks by leaps and bounds. It has done this by becoming associated with a known university. Our law school is hindered from becoming associated with any public universities in South Carolina because of agreements made when the law school was founded. While those limitations might be dissolved in the future according to the political winds, the possibilities of associating with private schools are available. Just things to think about as we all continue to dedicate our efforts and invest in the future of our law school.
