The fall 1990 issue includes essays that recapture some of the presentations and thinking of the 1990 American Bar Association annual conference on higher education, entitled "American Citizenship and the Constitution." The idea of community was a recurring theme of the conference, and is the focus of three essays included in the Fall 1990 issue: "Liberty and Community: Values in Tension" (Donald P. Kommers); "'Our Town' or 'Twin Peaks': The Dark Side of Community" (Paul R. Joseph); and "Diversity and Citizenship" (Rachel F. Moran). This issue also includes the articles: "Against the Socratic Method: Fostering Student Self-Confidence and Intellectual Independence" (Susan R. Burgess); "An Invitation to the Dance: A Reply to Professor Burgess" (Lief H. Carter); "Whatever Happened to...? A Look at York University Law and Society Graduates" (Jane Banfield Haynes); and "Supreme Court Justices in the Classroom: In Their Own Words" (Robert X. Browning; William P. McLauchlan). The spring 1991 issue contains the following articles: "Teaching Civil Liberties in the Bicentennial Year" (Joel B. Grossman); "Actively Engaging Students in Study about the Law" (Tom Sweeney); "Using Law as an Interpretive Framework for the Study of American History" (Shirley J. Burton); "Law, Literature, and Humanistic Study" (Robert J. Christopher); and "Enriching the Classroom through Alliances with the Local Bar and Other Community Groups." (DB)
