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.

Low-Glycemic Nutrition Tops Others: Cenegenics Program Goes Beyond Harvard Medical School Research to Real-Life Application, Hormonal Balance, Maximized Results

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 23, 2012

The Cenegenics customized healthy aging program goes beyond the recent Harvard Medical School research on nutrition, published in the “Journal of the American Medical Association,” to real-life applications, demonstrating the positive impact low-glycemic nutrition has on hormonal balance, caloric control, body composition, glucose metabolism, inflammatory markers and satiety, announced Cenegenics? Medical Institute, the global leader in age management medicine. Pairing foods, clearly defined carbohydrate options and an individualized approach per each patients baselineversus the generic ratios applied across the board in research and other nutritional planshelp Cenegenics target a patients health goals, from insulin management and body fat percentage to improved energy expenditure (calories burned).

A calorie is not a calorie, per this latest Harvard research, entitled “Effects of Dietary Composition on Energy Expenditure During Weight-Loss Maintenance.” There is a definite hormonal impact from food as well as a thermogenic effect. The low-glycemic diet?proved to have a higher thermogenesis (higher resting energy expenditure) than a low-fat diet. The bottom line: High-glycemic foods elevate blood glucose and spike insulin levels, which results in a higher body fat percentage and more pounds of fat.

Its not just about body composition, but also the blood valueshemoglobin A1C, glucose and insulinwhich indicate the amount and quality of carbohydrate youre eating. We teach patients to not only choose the right low-glycemic carbohydrates within the right portions for their needs, but how to properly pair those foods with lean protein and healthful fats to avoid elevating insulin throughout the day. And its that approach that continues to help our patients achieve results, Cenegenics Director of Nutrition/Exercise Rudy Inaba said.

Inaba also is the nutrition/exercise instructor for the Cenegenics Education and Research Foundations (CERFs) highly regarded Physician Training and Certification in Age Management Medicine program.

In real-world applications, Cenegenics nutritionists can widen the door for more variety to see what fits an individual patient, rather than the blanketed 40-40-20 ratio used in the Harvard study, says Inaba.

By choosing whole-food sourceslow-glycemic carbohydrates (primarily vegetables and fruits), healthful fats (high in omega-3s/omega 9s), lean protein sources (low in saturated fats)a patient has better control of the amount of glucose entering the bloodstream. That helps reduce the amount of insulin present in the blood and, as a result, allows the patient to feel more energized and use the bodys fat stores as a primary fuel source, Inaba said.

Physicians can discover the rewarding benefits of practicing age management medicine and Cenegenics physician training/certification program by contacting Dr. Michael Resnick (702.953.1574) or Dr. Tim Patel (702.953.1577).
