Fair use rationale for Image:Techlogo2.jpg[edit]

Resolved

Image:Techlogo2.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Image copyright problem with Image:SCU Seal.jpg[edit]

The image Image:SCU Seal.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Notable alumni[edit]

User:Srich32977 has made a good-faith edit [1] to combine numerous notable alumni who are supported by the same reference, SCU's "Lawyers Who Lead" page. with the comment "declutter repeating citation."

I reverted that: [2]. It's an undesirable edit for two reasons. First, it's factually incorrect. Not all of the alumni listed under that section are on the LWL page. It's factually wrong to say that they are.

Second, the idea of substituting SCU's determination for who is notable is inappropriate. Whether a particular alum is notable is for Wikipedia editors to decide on; not for the law school. Obviously, there would be serious COI issues to substitute the school's judgment.

Srich32977 then reverted my reversion, [3], with the summary "Will move the non-SCUSOL listed names to a second section."

I'm going to revert, and ask for a consensus to be reached before going down this road. First, as I said above, the article is wrong in its current state. It is factually incorrect to say "Santa Clara Law has named the following individuals among its "Lawyers Who Lead" listing." It simply isn't true. SCU has listed some of those individuals, and listed some others. It's just plain incorrect, and should not be so stated in the article.

On the issue of moving to a second section, I strongly object to that. We should have a list of notable alumni; not that list ans a second promotional list of who the school is listing as who it thinks is notable.

Finally, I don't think that properly attributing facts to a particular source is "clutter." The body of the text is unclutterd. Yes, there's a single footnote that, by the length of the list of reference numbers shows that it is heavily relied upon. But that's as it should be: maybe we are relying too much on a single reference, and ought to branch out a bit.

In the meantime, to prevent the article from being factually incorrect, I'm reverting again. Srich32977, the change you propose is a substantial and controversial one; please obtain consensus before making it. TJRC (talk) 06:59, 16 May 2012 (UTC)

NBD. The second listing presented was accurate in that the names were not in SC's listing. Fixing the description of SC's listing should be fairly easy. We say "among those leaders are ..." Cull the names according to WP notability standards and present the list with the caveat that it is a partial listing. Really, it is much more tidy to have one citation for that particular listing. And clarity is achieved if two listings are presented. As for the basic process of listing names, I see WP:UNIGUIDE actually prefers a narrative and discourages bare listings.--S.

List of clinics and centers[edit]

Some of the previous information was simply inaccurate. The full list is available here: http://law.scu.edu/centers/.

It would be nice to add the logo to this page. It is being used on other law school Wikipedia entries.
