    Law Library Statistics, Ranking and the "Value" of Law Libraries

    in Legal

    Special guests will include, Scott Pagel, Teresa Miguel-Stearns, Frank Houdek, and Darin Fox, current and past members of the ABA Data Policy and Collection Committee and noted experts in law library data and statistics. Regular line up of co-hosts and pundits includes: Ken Hirsh, Elizabeth Farrell Clifford, Roger Skalbeck, Mandy Lee, and Greg Lambert. 
    By some objective measures, academic law libraries are “disappearing” before our very eyes. The ABA Annual Questionnaire may have no law library questions next year and Self Study/SEQs now only contain about ten questions regarding the library! (In the past year I served on two site teams and the report template that I completed last month was smaller than the one I did last year!) Does it mean we’re less important? Nope. Not by a long shot. Other indicators show strong evidence that law libraries in law schools are more important and popular than ever before.
    Topics that will be considered are how the center of gravity is shifting away from objective measures of what is a law library, to subjective ones that emphasize services that we provide to our institutions. Anecdotally, it seems that law libraries are as popular as ever and are providing many expanded services, such as managing digital publication in law schools, PERMA, developing digitization of primary materials, expanded teaching throughout curricula via specialized research classes, etc., etc. But on paper, in the ABA Questionnaire, SEQ, etc., it seems we’re disappearing.

    Ep 4. IU Member Michael Ciklin on Forensic Analysis of Conservatorship of GSEs

    in Finance

    Investors Unite member Michael Ciklin, who is a Princeton graduate and holds a joint JD, MBA, MRE from University of Florida, joins Executive Director Tim Pagliara to discuss the findings from a Special Report he and fellow Investors Unite member Adam Spittler published, which is a forensic look at the bailout of Fannie Mae and subsequent conservatorship and Net Worth Sweep of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Ciklin explains some of their findings, including the assertion that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were not in need of a bailout, and gives his take on recent developments, including the government’s attempts to withhold documents relating to the Sweep and Dr. Jerome Corsi’s series of stories that call in to question the idea that the Obama Administration used proceeds from the Sweep to circumvent Congressional prohibitions on spending on some elements of the Affordable Care Act.

    in Finance

    Today’s guest also highlighted his brand of accountability that helped him kick butt and dump debt. Phil Risher graduated with $30K in student loans. But he got focused and didn’t let those student loans become a permanent fixture. This story is for students, parents of students, or just those who think I’ll never get out of debt – it can’t be done. I’m here to say, after repaying 107K in debt – debt freedom is possible. You  just might need a little accountability.
