Sandra S. Klein

An awareness of relevant contemporary legal thought in the area of privacy is especially important today in light of what appears to be an increasing hostility to .the notion of individual privacy.

Abortion/Reproductive Rights, Sandra Klein

Sandra S. Klein

The issue of a woman's right to choose whether or not to continue with a pregnancy has proven to be complicated for many reasons, not the least of which is the implications for a person's right to do with her body as she sees fit.

The Right To Die As An Issue Of Privacy: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein Dec 2015

The Right To Die As An Issue Of Privacy: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein

Sandra S. Klein

The issue of whether or not an individual has the right to choose when he or she will die, is a very controversial one for many reasons. Further complicating the issue is the question of who, if anyone, has the right to decide for those who are unable to choose for themselves. The bibliography which follows includes articles which discuss this topic from a right to privacy perspective, and should prove useful to those researchers who are new to the subject, as well as to those who are already familiar with the many complex issues involved.


Your Right To Privacy And Children's Rights/Family Law: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein Dec 2015

Your Right To Privacy And Children's Rights/Family Law: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein

Sandra S. Klein

In a society increasingly aware of real or perceived social inequities, it is not surprising to note a greater concern for the rights of children and their families. It is also apparent that privacy issues are an integral subset of the larger social sphere of interests. Privacy aspects can be seen to be involved pervasively throughout the area of law dealing with children and families, especially in view of the fact that there is obvious potential for conflict not only between families and the state, but between children and the families of which they are a part


Your Right To Privacy And The Aids Virus: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein Dec 2015

Your Right To Privacy And The Aids Virus: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein

Sandra S. Klein

The AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) virus has had a profound impact upon the lives of people everywhere. One aspect of this impact can be seen in the invasion into areas that had hitherto been believed by most to be private: sexual activity/preferences, medical records/testing, etc. An intensely personal and private tragedy has become, because of its nature~ a matter of public concern. The bibliography which follows addresses the privacy concerns of those infected with the AIDS virus.


Sexual Freedom And Your Right To Privacy: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein Dec 2015

Sexual Freedom And Your Right To Privacy: A Selective Bibliography, Sandra Klein

Sandra S. Klein

Like so many other privacy issues, concern over sexual freedom took on more than intellectual overtones with the advent of greater public discussion. As courts and government appeared to enter the most private domain of all, the bedroom, the public's interest in privacy issues dealing with sexual freedom increased dramatically. This bibliography should serve as a valuable tool for researchers who have an interest in this highly controversial area of social concern.

Robert MacCoun

This brief addresses the issue of jury performance and jury responses to expert testimony. It reviews and summaries a substantial body of research evidence about jury behavior that has been produced over the past quarter century. The great weight of that evidence challenges the view that jurors abdicate their responsibilities as fact finders when faced with expert evidence or that they are pro-plaintiff, anti-defendant, and anti-business.

The Petitioners and amici on behalf of petitioners make a number of overlapping, but empirically unsupported, assertions about jury behavior in response to expert testimony, namely that juries are frequently incapable of critically evaluation ...

The Integrated Law School Curriculum, Adam Lamparello Nov 2015

The Integrated Law School Curriculum, Adam Lamparello

Adam Lamparello

In January 2014, the American Bar Association’s Task Force on the Future of Legal Education stated that “[a]n evolution is taking place in legal practice and legal education needs to evolve with it.” To this end, the Task Force recommended that the law school curriculum “needs to shift still further toward developing the competencies and professionalism required of people who will deliver services to clients.” In fact, the Task Force emphasized that “[a] graduate’s having some set of competencies in the delivery of law and related services, and not just some body of knowledge, is an essential ...

Certificates Of Confidentiality: Protecting Human Subject Research Data In Law And Practice, Leslie E. Wolf, Mayank J. Patel, Brett A. Tarver, Jeffrey L. Austin, Lauren A. Dame, Laura M. Beskow Nov 2015

Certificates Of Confidentiality: Protecting Human Subject Research Data In Law And Practice, Leslie E. Wolf, Mayank J. Patel, Brett A. Tarver, Jeffrey L. Austin, Lauren A. Dame, Laura M. Beskow

Leslie E. Wolf

Researchers often require and collect sensitive information about individuals to answer important scientific questions that impact individual health and well-being and the public health. Researchers recognize they have a duty to maintain the confidentiality of the data they collect and typically make promises, which are documented in the consent form. The legal interests of others, however, can threaten researchers’ promises of confidentiality, if they seek access to the data through subpoena. Certificates of Confidentiality (Certificates), authorized by federal statute, are an important tool for protecting individually identifiable sensitive research data from compelled disclosure. However, questions persist in the research community ...

The Legal World Is Flat: Globalization And Its Effect On Lawyers Practicing In Non-Global Law Firms, Laurel S. Terry Oct 2015

The Legal World Is Flat: Globalization And Its Effect On Lawyers Practicing In Non-Global Law Firms, Laurel S. Terry

Laurel S. Terry

While lawyers in these large global law firms usually are aware of why globalization is relevant to them, other U.S. lawyers may not think that the globalization phenomenon affects them. A comment frequently heard is "Law is local so I don't have to worry about globalization affecting me or my practice." The goal of this article is to look at Friedman's work through the lens of legal services and to answer several questions, including: • Whether Friedman's analysis is relevant to what has happened in the field of legal services; • Whether a U.S. lawyer who doesn ...

Feminist Legal Scholarship: Charting Topics And Authors, 1978-2002, Laura A. Rosenbury Oct 2015

Feminist Legal Scholarship: Charting Topics And Authors, 1978-2002, Laura A. Rosenbury

Laura A. Rosenbury

In their call for papers, the organizers of the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law’s Spring 2003 symposium “Why a Feminist Law Journal?” posed several questions, including: "Are feminist law journals a victim of their own success? Have they outlived their usefulness?" and "What is the state of feminist legal scholarship today? What constitutes feminist scholarship?" As a new member of the legal academy, my answers to their questions depend on answers to two more basic questions: What has been published in feminist law journals? And, how do those articles relate to feminist articles published in non-specialty, or flagship ...

That's Just The Way It Is: Langille On Law, Allan C. Hutchinson Oct 2015

That's Just The Way It Is: Langille On Law, Allan C. Hutchinson

Allan C. Hutchinson

This article is a defence of the sceptical critique of the legitimacy of law and adjudication. It is a direct reply to the arguments of Professor Brian Langille, whose article "Revolution Without Foundation: The Grammar of Scepticism and Law" appeared in Volume 33 of this Journal. In that article, Langille defended the viability of law, legal discourse and legal critique primarily by attacking the claim that scepticism based on the "indeterminacy of language" can be grounded in the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Professor Hutchinson concentrates his spirited response on the indeterminacy of language. He contends that law fails to meet ...
