Regulation And Supervision Of The Otc Derivatives Market, Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera May 2018

Regulation And Supervision Of The Otc Derivatives Market, Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera

Ligia Catherine Arias Barrera

The over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market has captured the attention of regulators after the Global Financial Crisis due to the risk it poses to financial stability. Under the post-crisis regulatory reform the concentration of business, and risks, among a few major players is changed by the concentration of a large portion of transactions in the new market infrastructures, the Central Counterparties (CCPs).

This book, for the first time, analyses the regulatory response of the United Kingdom and the United States, the two largest centres of OTC derivatives transactions, and highlights their shortcomings. The book uses a normative risk-based approach to regulation ...


Reconstructing The Right Against Excessive Force, Avidan Y. Cover Feb 2018

Reconstructing The Right Against Excessive Force, Avidan Y. Cover

Florida Law Review

Police brutality has captured public and political attention, garnering protests, investigations, and proposed reforms. But judicial relief for excessive force victims is invariably doubtful. The judicial doctrine of qualified immunity, which favors government interests over those of private citizens, impedes civil rights litigation against abusive police officers under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. In particular, the doctrine forecloses lawsuits unless the law is clearly established that the force would be unlawful, requiring a high level of specificity and precedent that is difficult to satisfy. Further tilting the balance against excessive force victims, Fourth Amendment case law privileges the police perspective ...

The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade Dec 2017

The Behaviour Of Family Lawyers And The Implications For Legal Education, John H. Wade

John Wade

Legal educators have often developed courses with the purported goal of teaching students to “think like lawyers.” Yet little is known about the ways various classes of lawyers think or behave. This paper offers some insights through anecdotal observations of the behaviour of family lawyers in Sydney. It must be conceded, however, that even beginning to demystify lawyerly behaviour does little to resolve current debates about the goals and methods of legal education.

Terrorist Advocacy And Exceptional Circumstances, David S. Han Nov 2017

Terrorist Advocacy And Exceptional Circumstances, David S. Han

Fordham Law Review

This Article proceeds as follows. Part I discusses the harmful effects of terrorist advocacy and outlines the present doctrinal treatment of such speech. Part II discusses the issue of exceptional circumstances and highlights the two approaches courts might take to account for them: applying strict scrutiny to the case at hand or broadly reformulating the First Amendment’s doctrinal boundaries. Part III sets forth my central thesis: courts should adhere to case-by-case strict scrutiny analysis, rather than broad doctrinal reformulation, as the initial means of accounting for exceptional circumstances with respect to terrorist advocacy. This approach reflects the vital importance ...


The Role Of Internet Intermediaries In Tackling Terrorism Online, Raphael Cohen-Almagor Nov 2017

The Role Of Internet Intermediaries In Tackling Terrorism Online, Raphael Cohen-Almagor

Fordham Law Review

Gatekeeping is defined as the work of third parties “who are able to disrupt misconduct by withholding their cooperation from wrongdoers.”1 Internet intermediaries need to be far more proactive as gatekeepers than they are now. Socially responsible measures can prevent the translation of violent thoughts into violent actions. Designated monitoring mechanisms can potentially prevent such unfortunate events. This Article suggests an approach that harnesses the strengths and capabilities of the public and private sectors in offering practical solutions to pressing problems. It proposes that internet intermediaries should fight stringently against terror and further argues that a responsible gatekeeping approach ...


Los Derechos Para Una Política Cultural En Un Estado Federal: Los Fundamentos Teóricos, Norma E. Pimentel Méndez Sep 2017

Los Derechos Para Una Política Cultural En Un Estado Federal: Los Fundamentos Teóricos, Norma E. Pimentel Méndez

Norma E Pimentel

El presente artículo trata de esclarecer las relaciones que existen entre la forma federal de Estado y los derechos de los ciudadanos en torno a la cultura y a las políticas culturales, particularmente en lo que toca al acceso y al disfrute de los bienes y servicios culturales. Es menester señalar que la política cultural es uno de esos campos de la política en donde mejor se puede valorar y aquilatar la vigencia práctica del federalismo, a diferencia de otras, como la política exterior, la de salud o la de defensa, en las que generalmente hay más similitudes con las ...


Group Rights: A Defense, David Ingram Sep 2017

Group Rights: A Defense, David Ingram

David Ingram

Human rights belong to individuals in virtue of their common humanity. Yet it is an important question whether human rights entail or comport with the possession of what I call group-specific rights (sometimes referred to as collective rights), or rights that individuals possess only because they belong to a particular group. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) says they do. Article 15 asserts the right to nationality, or citizenship. Unless one believes that the only citizenship compatible with a universal human rights regime is cosmopolitan citizenship in a world state – a conception of citizenship that is not countenanced by ...

Knowledge Workers In The New Economy: From Cliché To Contract - The 26th Annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, Catherine L. Fisk, Greg W. Castle, Julia A. Clark May 2017

Knowledge Workers In The New Economy: From Cliché To Contract - The 26th Annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, Catherine L. Fisk, Greg W. Castle, Julia A. Clark

Catherine Fisk

Professor Catherine Fisk of University of Southern California Law School discusses how the concepts of knowledge work and the new economy have moved rapidly from novelty to cliché. New characteristics of labor markets and the business practices which they represent are yet to be established in American labor and employment law. Changes in legal doctrine and legal process, as well as the changes in business and labor institutions and practices, need to address the demands of firms and workers for fairness as well as efficiency. The widely documented shift from internal to external labor markets, the transformation of many remaining ...

Only 5 Percent Of Senate Staffers Are Black. Congress Needs The ‘Rooney Rule.’

N. Jeremi Duru

"American University law professor Jeremi Duru — author of “Advancing the Ball: Race, Reformation, and the Quest for Equal Coaching Opportunity in the NFL” — explained, “the whole idea of it is to prompt kind of a culture change” and further the idea that “in order to succeed and be competitive, you have to look at a deep pool of candidates.”"


The Trans Pacific Partnership: Copyright Law, The Creative Industries And Internet Freedom, Matthew Rimmer Apr 2017

The Trans Pacific Partnership: Copyright Law, The Creative Industries And Internet Freedom, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

Professor Matthew Rimmer discusses the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) as part of IP Osgoode Speaks series. This ‘blockbuster agreement’—supposedly a jovial landmark in the sphere of diplomatic international relations—was diluted with a mixture of uncertainty and secrecy. According to Prof. Rimmer, the TPP is a controversial agreement for several reasons. First, many concerns were raised regarding the involvement of major companies, via special advisory groups and executives, in drafting parts of the agreement. Consequently, the companies allegedly had more influence over the TPP than the legislators since the latter could not review the agreement that was protected (and ...
