2014 U.S. News Law School Rankings: Legal Writing & Intellectual Property Law Programs at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago Among the Best in the Nation

(PRWEB) March 12, 2013

Two programs at The John Marshall Law School have climbed in the legal specialty rankings of 2014 U.S. News & World Reports Best Graduate Schools published on March 12, 2013.

The Legal Writing Program is ranked second in the nation. It was ranked sixth in 2013. The Intellectual Property Law Program is now ranked 12th, a jump from 17th place.

At John Marshall, the Lawyering Skills Program (commonly called legal writing) is one of the most rigorous research/writing programs in the country, designed to immerse students in the art of legal writing and research over four semesters.

I am pleased that our peers have recognized the strength of our Lawyering Skills program at John Marshall, said Professor Anthony Niedwiecki, director of the Lawyering Skills Program.

I believe that the high ranking is a result of the steps we have taken to better reflect current legal practice. We recently surveyed our alumni and employers to see which skills they want our graduates to have, he said. In response to the results of the survey, we have revamped our program to better reflect what lawyers do in practice. Overall, we have been ahead of other law schools in producing practice-ready graduates.

Niedwiecki also said the leadership roles of John Marshall faculty are being recognized in rankings by the legal writing community. Many of our professors are accomplished leaders in our field with several serving on the boards or as officers of all of the major legal writing organizations, he noted.

John Marshalls Intellectual Property (IP) Program is ranked 12th in the nation. The IP Program, one of the oldest in the country, offers more than 30 specialized IP courses, making it one of the most extensive sets of IP offerings anywhere. The program draws students from around the country and across the globe. It has partnered with IP lawyers in the Peoples Republic of China for 20 years.

This great news shows that my colleagues in the IP community recognize the strength of our program, said Professor Doris Estelle Long, director of the Center for Intellectual Property Law. We have a great deal of synergy at John Marshall, from our innovative courses with their focus on real-world, practice-ready training to our online journal, Review of Intellectual Property Law, to our Chinese IP Resource Center and our cross-curricular offerings with our Center for Information Technology and Privacy Law.

I believe it says much about how we prepare our students for their legal careers in intellectual property law, Long said. With our new innovative programs now offered as part of the law schools eDegrees online option, we look forward to continuing to be on the leading edge of intellectual property education, she added.

San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) January 03, 2013

Retirement is one part of post employment that many people try to plan for successfully. Many investment strategies exist and the amount of returns that are possible varies depending on the investments used. TedThomas.com has launched a best retirement planning strategies for 2013 webinar. This video webinar explores the government-backed securities that can be used to grow retirement funds tax-free.

Real estate is one area of investing that some people have used to help build personal wealth. Knowing the right strategy to use at the right time is one of the ways that this method can work for average investors.

The purchase price of a property can be one of the blockades that prevents a person from owning real estate. The new webinar presents alternative strategies that can be used to acquire a property without the initial purchase price.

The government backs some investment types with a guarantee in the tax code, said Ted Thomas in his new webinar series. Anyone can use the same strategies that professionals use without requiring special training, added Ted.

The concept of tax deeds is now explained in detail in the new webinar. This investment method allows a tax-free investment to be made in a property that is acquired through non-traditional means. Tax deed investors that are experienced can use available strategies to purchase a property for a reduced price. As one of the authorities on tax deed investing, Ted Thomas now includes this information to help educate new or soon-to-be retirees.

The new retirement investment strategies for 2013 that are now included in the TedThomas.com webinar represents a portion of the educational materials that are now available. The opening of the new web store online is helping to provide access to over 30 authored books and DVDs that explain more concepts in detail.

Tahoe Resorts Add Millions in New Lifts, Trails and Lodges. TahoesBest.com Reveals The Best Additions of 2013


Lake Tahoe, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

Lake Tahoe ski resorts attract thousands of new and returning skiers every season. Every year, each ski resort hopes to attract more skiers than the year before, and this year, there are 3 resorts that have caught the eye of TahoesBest.com for their numerous improvements.

Squaw Valley

They are currently in year 2 of their “Renaissance,” which when completed (expected 2015/16) both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows will have received about $ 70 million in improvements.

The new Big Blue Express is a 6-passenger high-speed lift will be replacing the High Camp Chair lift, extending up to the top of the Shirley Lake ridgeline. The lift is going to be faster than its predecessor, but even better, it will also provide beginner and intermediate skiers access to areas that were previously not attainable. Squaw Valley has also invested in new air/water guns, replaced fan guns, pumps and compressors and has installed new monitoring equipment that will significantly improve the snow making this season. The Burton Learn to Ride center is also partnering with Squaw Valley this year. This program offers equipment designed specifically for beginners of all ages to make learning easier from the start.

The nearby Squaw Valley Lodge has recently announced a new Ski & Stay Package which includes two complimentary 2-day lift tickets to Squaw Valley USA.

Northstar California

Northstar has been open since mid-November, but also for the past 40 years! Much like many 40 year olds these days, they’ve made some improvements. $ 30 Million worth of improvements. For those who have yet to witness how far $ 30 million in improvements goes in a ski resort, head over to Northstar.

Expect to see a new high-speed chairlift and 2 new intermediate trails on the Backside of the mountain calling the names of all skiers looking to improve their skill this season. There will be new dining on the mountain at the Zephyr Lodge and a new 22-foot Superpipe designed by Shaun White. And what’s a season without a new Burton addition? This year, Northstar California is partnering with Burton Snowboard Academy to add Riglet Park, a new feature designed especially for the 3-6 year old kids learning to snowboard.

Those who plan on attending Northstar’s 40th Anniversary Bash hosted by Shaun White might benefit from checking out this year’s new specials at the Village at Northstar to save on a Tahoe getaway.

Heavenly Ski Resort

Heavenly has revealed the new Tamarack Lodge with 15,000 square feet of 750 indoor and outdoor dining options. The lodge is located at the top of the Gondola, but if guests aren’t hungry up there, ski down and enjoy the new BaseCamp pizza at the base of the Gondola. Tamarack Lodge is just icing on the cake to the additional $ 30 million Heavenly has invested in recent upgrades to Adventure Peak, including lift-served tubing lanes, snowbikes and a new adventure zone.

On top of the already raised stakes, there’s even some opportunities to snag free lift tickets. Tahoe Travelers can get 2 free Heavenly Resort lift tickets when they stay at the Forest Suites Resort.

Now is the time to start planning a trip to Lake Tahoe. Two more ski resorts will be opening this weekend, with another pair opening the following weekend. These improvements are just the beginning of a great new year on the slopes in Lake Tahoe!
