of naming. To name the injury or injustice is to define our own experience. The next step is blaming. We attribute fault to a person or institution or event that has caused the injury. We allow ourselves to experience the anger and hurt. The final step is claiming. We ask for reparations to be made and for this not to occur in the future. Thus we have acted in our own behalf, claimed our experience, and worked to change the outcome. The differences between Felstiner, Abel, and Sarat’s typology and Nader and Todd’s typology is that Nadar and Todd includes disputes as an essential part of the process, whereas Felstiner, Abel, and Sarat lays out all of the steps leading up to and before a dispute is formed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
